In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

A West Coast Welcome ... 

My first road trip: the northern end of Vancouver Island in the Diocese of Victoria. You could say I got my feet wet with a truly West Coast welcome: an encounter with great people and God’s majestic creation.

There were even a couple slugs who gave me a true “Wet Coast” welcome ... they found their way into my shoes! There’s something so coastal about putting your bare feet into a pair of slip-ons early in the morning and having your toes slimed by a slug ...

All creatures great and small, praise the Lord!
