All Saints Day

We are on the road,slowing winding our way down the Alcan. Leaving was a whirlwind of goodbyes. Friday night at the Big I, witgh people I did not expect to show up. Saturday night at Bobby’s with the usual suspects, then a decided non-clerical appearance at the Rocky Horror Picture Show, followed up on Sunday with a coffee we threw for Sen. Begich. Monday was my last day at work, and Monday night was spent getting ready for the movers on Tuesday.

So movers on Tuesday, and more good byes on Wednesday. Thursday morning I said good bye to Steven, and we pulled out Thursday afternoon around five, after saying good bye to Thomas, and making one last stop at Bobby’s.

We have just entered Canada officially! The Redhead is very excited. I feel more pensive. She is beyond ready to go, but i could have stayed a few more years. Were it not for the call awaiting me in Medford I would be happy to stay. But I do have this wonderful call, and so I am off and running.

It’s funny that I called this blog From the Still Point, but so far it is all about being on the move. That is the irony of my life, not just the blog.

John Calvin was dubious about nature providing any reliable clues about God. Of course Calvin never saw Alaska.

    You can always call Alaska home. You two will always be welcomed for every home coming. Enjoy the adventure!
