Where are the Men?

Easter PilgrimsChewing on the easter story for our Pre Sunrise Easter Hike; I heard part of the story in a new way.

from Mark 16

When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so they could embalm him. Very early on Sunday morning, as the sun rose, they went to the tomb. They worried out loud to each other, “Who will roll back the stone from the tomb for us?”

In other words: "Where are the men? With them hiding in fear: Who will roll back the stone?"

And so it was that it was the women who first encountered the resurrection.  It was a woman who was the first commissioned evangelist of the good news. "Go to my brothers and tell them..."

Seattle Bed & Breakfast

Shafer Baillie Mansion

After my time in Portland I stayed a night in Seattle at the Shafer Baillie Mansion.  Wonderful quiet space with historic elegance, comes with a lovely breakfast.  I highly recommend it.

100km in Portland

Hit the 100km mark in Portland after hanging out with missional siblings at Evergreen this morning.

Zoo Bomb Rack

That's the Zoo Bomb Rack in the foreground and the Crystal Hotel where I was staying in the background.  (More on Portland to come)

So that's 100km down. Hope to hit 200km in Calgary, then 300km while getting Sarah from UBC.

The goal for the year 3200km.
