You may or may not realize or remember that Vivian and I spent about three years working in the islands of the South Pacific, doing the same thing that we did in Latin America. That work was in Pastoral and Leadership Training.
During this past week, as part of a celebration of our wedding anniversary (44th), Vivian and I took a little trip up to Lake Superior. Not quite the Pacific Ocean, but as I sat on the shore looking out on the Great Lake and the huge expanse of water, the sense was much the same for me as sitting on an island of the Pacific. It brought back many memories.
