|Tanzania and England|
Yesterday we welcomed two of our colleagues from Kasulu to our floating home. Eldah, who is my teaching colleague at the Bible College, and Jonas, a priest of a new church plant in Kasulu, have been in England for a month - at a conference and visiting the Diocese of Gloucester. It was a privilege to bring these two parts of our lives - and two very different parts of the world - together. For them lunch on a canal boat was certainly a new and memorable experience!
For those who don't know our boat - it is 51ft and 25 years old. Machili was my mother's name, and she was, interestingly, named after a tributary of the River Zambezi!
I'd like to repeat our invitation to my service of installation as a Canon of Gloucester Cathedral, on Wed 10th July - the service will start at 5.30pm. After the service there will be drinks in the Chapter House, and then we hope people will be able to "adjourn" to the Robert Raikes Pub on Southgate street, for a informal pub meal together.
IF you are planning to come for the meal (and feel free to come for that without the service) - please could you drop me an email so that I can send you a menu. It will be much easier for the pub if as many of as possible can order beforehand.
