Comedy Of Errors Down Under

The start of my teaching and pastoral tour Down Under was a Comedy of Errors.The Edinburgh plane was delayed so I took an earlier one. My luggage was not transferred and six days later is still not here in New South Wales despite hours at baggage counters and on the phone. The Travel Agency listred me as staying at Empire Hotel Kowloon but they told me I was booked in at The Empire Hotel Hong Hong, so after several hours travel etc I was ensconced there. I was met at Sidney Airport by the recent leader of the Iona Community's sister Australia Community - Wellsrping - Neil Holm, and stayed with him and his wife Margaret. They put me on a two hour train to Newcastle. Matt was not there - he had told them I should get off at the previous station. I looked up our supposedly updated list of members and took a taxi. This was in fact the previous home of the Lamonts - they left it six months ago. Eventually, with more taxis, I got to them. This morning I queued and paid 105 dollars to get a month's supply of eye drops - I was advised by the doctor to live without the prostate tablets since I am now doing well - un less the problem returns - since they will be very expensive. I Matt and I have just gone to a 'high place' and had a good long talk, and he wishes to take The First Voyage. Tomorrow I lead the first seminar. Maybe God wants me to learn from the Aboriginals and be content with my skin, health, food, roof and friends. Tomorrow the first seminar begins. God Bless
