Manya: I love the fact that Jesus' life and purpose were so powerful that it couldn't be lost even to a decaying language. Good to know about this love of the original which offers some beautiful insight to the KJV from the little I've had access. Shirley would love to know about this, too, assuming you've added her to your circle of friends. I'm honored to be included among your friends, and continue to value your writing.  Continuing progress at 17th Church; we love our iinvolvement with Sacred Spaces. Our program with them will be Sunday May 5th.

I really do think this was peak weekend for leaves. So glad I got outdoors one last time before the chill kicked in.

Bragging rights
Watched the Royal Wedding from Trafalgar Square and waved to the bride and groom from a window ledge at the corner of Whitehall street. That was almost as much fun as biking around Ouagadougou, the capital city of Burkina Faso the following year. Next stop: Kyrgyzstan.
