Finally . .. we made it back to Orkney on the ferry. Kids are in school today and we are trying to get organized in our new apartment – no internet connection yet and no broadband for 10 days.
Dublin was a blast and a much needed halfway house on the way home. Things are really converging in Ireland with various groups coming together and good things in store for next year.
USA was a fast and wild trip. It was encouraging to see many of our friends find their place but also disheartening to see the general loss of vision that has plagued the American church. Many groups and ministries have given up on the Great Commission and have turned instead to beefing themselves up to prevent further loss of resources. This can only have a negative impact down the road.
Must get sorted out up here – internet, paperwork, fitting into our temporary home which is smaller than we remember it. Talk later when i get to the Stromness library.
