Knowledge and surprise

On Saturday May 12, I had the privilege to speak to the Presbytery of Sacramento during their meeting at Woodland Presbyterian Church. New friends were made and long-time friendships were renewed.


David Rue preached. David and I met in Cleveland where we served together on the presbytery team working to address and disrupt racism. The photo was taken from the back of the church – we should have had one taken after the meeting.

Because of the invitation to speak, I knew I would see David. Seeing Janice again, and sitting in on the meeting where she was unanimously approved, was a surprise.

In both instances, it was a blessing.

See you along the Trail.
