Today was an interesting day on several levels. The first was the amount of rain we had this morning. The walk from Youngs Cove to Bagdad was very damp, but we were able to see two lovely little churches deep in the New Brunswick countryside.

The other adventure was that whilst I was crossing a ditch, I slipped and fell in. I managed to roll quite nicely and did myself no harm, but it was not very graceful!

Travelling through our back roads and seeing these gems of churches, which are still cared for, always makes me grateful and reflective. The gratitude is for the people who still look after the buildings, even though they may be rarely used. I also reflect that when these structures were built, often in the 1800s, there were communities in the area who wanted to worship God.

Today the church buildings are often isolated. Sometimes surrounded by a graveyard recalling the names of families and individuals who used to call that area home and in some cases still do. There is an almost silent echo of faithfulness from the past into the present.

Today, despite the rain we had a number of people walking with us from the Parish of Cambridge and Waterborough. It was good to be able to share time and stories with them.

We had to rush away after finishing this morning's walk to get to Woodman's Point for the burial of Bishop Lemmon. Thankfully we made it in good time. Please continue to pray for the Lemmons, particularly Lois as she adjusts to life without George.
