Back for a weekend tour 5

IMG_4868After church on April 2, some friends and I went to Chinatown for lunch and dessert and most importantly for conversation!

Peng had to leave early to visit a member of the church in the hospital. And we forgot to take a photo before Jim and Holly left. But we did get one with Jamie, Don, and me.

See you along the Trail.

Back for a weekend tour 4

IMG_4871On Sunday, April 2, I had the privilege to preach at First Chinese Presbyterian Church in the City of New York. It is one of the churches where I find myself at home. The people make it so.

Thanks to my dear friend Peng Leong for the photo that was taken after the service.

See you along the Trail.

Back for a weekend tour 1

IMG_4830I returned to New York for a long weekend. It involved staying with my son Sean and my grand puppy Henrik, leading a workshop for the Committee on Preparation for Ministry of the Presbytery of New York City, and preaching at First Chinese Presbyterian Church.

Henrik did not seem to understand that I was at his apartment to work rather than to play with him.

Maybe next time.

See you along the Trail.

The Until We Meet Again Tour – 24 July 2016

The  Until We Meet Again Tour went to First Chinese Presbyterian Church in New York City today. It was a wonderful day with dear friends. Truly a blessing. As noted earlier, my intention had been not to accept invitations to preach during the tour. However, invitations began to arrive from congregations that mean a great deal to me and it became impossible to say no. Once again I am delighted I agreed to preach. It was a tender, precious moment filled with sorrow and joy. The experience crystallized a reality that has been emerging for me – I will miss the people of New York even more than I will miss the places of New York.But they will travel with me in the mystery that is the Communion of Saints. And in the photos I take:

I even rose to a challenge from Doreen to take a selfie:

See you along the Trail.

The Until We Meet Again Tour – 15 July 2016

The Until We Meet Again Tour began in the offices of the Presbyterian Ministry at the United Nations with an afternoon of recycling programmatic files. Then I hopped the 7 train and rode one stop to transfer to the D. The ride ended at Coney Island, which as my son Sean points out is not an island.

I walked to MCU Park to join friends from First Chinese Presbyterian Church of New York City for a Brooklyn Cyclones game. The group included Peng Leong, Vicki Louie-Shek, Jimmy Shek, Tony Chan, Will Tsang, Doreen Cheung, Brandon Louie, Jason Chan, Michael Sellers,Suzanne Yong-Sellers, Stephanie Travitsky, and Doug Bolan. Jim and Holly Nedelka from Jan Hus Presbyterian Church were also at the game.

I failed to get any photos of my friends, but several of them did and posted their photos on Facebook. If this works, here’s a gallery from Doreen.

I did get a photo of a couple of Brooklyn Dodgers who could play the game and who helped change our country.
