We Meet Again Tour – 31 January 2018, #1

I did some visits on Staten Island and spotted the moon over Brooklyn while riding the ferry back to Manhattan.

Staten Island BBQ

IMG_2801 (800x533)I planned to spend today visiting Battery Park, then riding the Staten Island Ferry so I could take some photos using the new telescopic lens I have on “extended loan” from one of my sons.

I got up and found myself moving a bit slowly. Going back to sleep certainly seemed an option.

Determined to force my hand, I posted my plans on Facebook. Once public, there would be no going back.

Shortly after I posted, my colleague and friend, the Rev. Melodee Bottari, pastor of Olivet Presbyterian Church invited me to a BBQ at the church.

It sounded good to me. I went and had a great time that included a tour of the church. I saw where the church provides housing for homeless women and the room where volunteers working with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance on recovery from Hurricane Sandy will stay.

The BBQ took place on the church lawn and included an invitation to register for the Vacation Bible School.

Good folks. Good food. Good ministry. A good visit.

See you along the Trail.
