The Ultimate Word

"The ultimate Word is not a paragraph but a person. If Jesus is the Word of God incarnate, then the heart of proclamation is personal and relational, not propositional."

Greetings from England!

Well, I've made it! I've had one incredibly sleep deprived and jet lagged day in London, but filled with many exciting activities. Here are a few pictures to get us started!


Here's the Houses of Parliament and "Big Ben". I got to hear it chime noon while I was waiting for it to be late enough to call my mother to let her know I had arrived safely. :)


And here I am having a pint. A necessary first step for the weary traveler.


Having a mince meat pie in Black Friars Pub. Certainly NOT the "worst pies in London"...


Here's the amazing Salisbury Cathedral. One of the highlights of my tourist time! I went through as a tourist earlier and I saw the Magna Carta and a stunning collection of late 15th and early 16th century Eucharistic silver. Tonight I'm going to Evensong and an organ concert there. Tomorrow, I plan to visit Stonehenge and Old Sarum. Oh yes, and last night, before dinner, was Choral Evensong at Westminster Abbey.

So much to do!!

But alas, I'm getting eager to get down to Canterbury for my work!

Look for more updates soon!
