Weekly e-Gram for members and friends of Dublin Community Church

THE JOURNEY

Every day I get to do what I love: which is drive to Dublin and work in the ministry of Dublin Community Church.

Every year, I get to do something else that I love when I am not doing what was just stated in the first sentence.

I am about to travel. And ride the trains. And visit cathedral cities. In England. With our two daughters.

For 20 years, I have wanted to see some of those cathedral towns and have been fascinated by the fact that these huge Gothic cathedrals sit majestically in some rather small cities. So, I will travel to six cathedral cities and spend time in London visiting Christopher Wren churches, including the great St. Paul’s.

I also cannot figure out why I have never visited the British Museum when I have previously been to London. I’ll correct that slight oversight and in particular I want to visit the African Section of the museum. I’d like to visit the British Library too. Frankly, I would like to live in London for a while but I will content myself with a few days in the cathedrals and museums; though the Borough Market, Camden and Portobello Road beckon also.

My daughters want to eat Indian Food, “Be-bop” (I’ll explain that cultural phenomenon sometime), and I want to walk the southern side of the Thames between Southwark Cathedral (Chaucer began his Canterbury Tales from that cathedral) and the Houses of Parliament.

You can come along also. Like previous expeditions, I will blog it and it should be posted each morning. You’ll have to bookmark it on your computer, there won’t be a daily email reminding you of the posting. In addition, I will post a couple e-grams from England too.

Anyway…. give the following a look. I have made one initial writing and it is posted on the blog. I will be in church for the next two Sundays and leave after Memorial Day. My first posting from England should be a couple days later.

I look forward to leaving… and returning… and sharing the journey along the way with you. First Stops: London and Canterbury.

Peace, Rev. Bob Tussing
