Wow. I am tired. I have broken 22,000 steps on my Fitbit today. It was our day off and despite wanting to take it easy walking-wise, I ended up going twice as far as I have any other day.

Today was spent shopping and exploring. And though it wasn’t on my agenda to visit any significant historical or theological sites, I nonetheless found myself at The Church of St. James with friends. We had the opportunity to take in the service there. It was in a different language with vastly different traditions than anything I have experienced. Even so – it was beautiful. There was deep sense of mystery and awe in the service. I didn’t understand anything that was happening…but I had the sense that God was present. And so did my friends.


I am exhausted and my brain has truly shut off. So I will leave you with this brief entry and a brief scripture:

Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith : Christ was revealed in a human body and vindicated by the Spirit. He was seen by angels and announced to the nations. He was believed in throughout the world and taken to heaven in glory.
1 Timothy 3:16 NLT
