Today has been a tough day as we walked 20 kilometers, but that was not really the hard part. We are to love all God's creatures, but blackflies and mosquitoes really try a person's patience. Basically from Lincoln to Oromocto we were swarmed by both. It was so bad that we could not easily stop for lunch for fear of being carried off. Even now, as I write, the delightful little things are buzzing around the room. I think that tonight's going to be an itch fest'.

To balance out the annoying critters we had a great welcome from the people of the Parish of Oromocto.. We have been well fed and watered and had a fine service of Evening Prayer. It was one of their first opportunities to be together for such an event since the beginning of the pandemic, so there was a real sense of excitement.

During these pilgrimages I am always reminded of the importance of being together in fellowship. We are connected across the diocese. We all meet and worship in differing ways, but there is a unity to be found in Jesus. Post-pandemic, this is an important reminder.

On a different note please remember to pray for the Lemmon family tomorrow as they attend Bishop George's funeral and to give thanks for his life and ministry.
