Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

It's been a good first day

At half past five (that's 5:30 PM in "American") we're set to have our daily "debriefing" session and then it's off to the local pub for proper fish 'n chips with Michael, Jon, Luiz and Allie.

I spent the morning orienting myself to the neighborhood and the Market Place. Tomorrow, I'll sort out my official press pass and begin attending the daily press conferences. If I can figure out how to work my new digital camera, I'll have more pictures to send.

Bishop Gene stopped by to visit the Communications Center before lecturing at the Law School. Jon snapped this for me of the two of us. It was so very good to see Bishop Gene and to know that he really is doing remarkably well. He can only do this because the man is clearly to the position born - despite the bishop of Sudan's call for his resignation this afternoon. Story to follow (check the Integrity Website.)

While you're there, check out The Lambeth Witness - our daily newsletter from the perspective of "the outsiders" here in Canterbury.

You'll also find this picture, which wins the award for Best T-shirt at the Lambeth Marketplace.

Please, Elizabeth, give him (+Gene) our love, and assure him of TEC's support!!!

[+Gene isn't only a "normal Christian". As far as I'm concerned he may be THE "normal {i.e., Christ-like} Christian"!]

God bless you, too, "TELP". ;-/

Ditto. . . . Give Gene our Love.

Yes - tell him lots of love even from this RC woman who adores him and prays for him daily.

That photo is a real treasure. I may have to put it on the sidebar of my blog. I just put up an official "Birder of FranIam" - birder and blogfriend, Delia.

You two could be the offical.... let me work on that one.

JCF said it very well- he usually does, God bless you and more.
