Ottawa

Randy and Sharon Goodfellow hosted me with much thought in their lovely home. On Friday Gregor came to supper. He is a former Sufi, a fine leader and meditator who has just begun an ordained ministry across the river. On Saturday St.John's Church, March was the venue for a day conference on Celtic Christian spirituality. This included a power point presentation of our Way of Life. That evening about twelve friends came to the house for refreshments and conversation. On Trinity Sunday St. Mary's Church invited me to preside and preach at an open air Celtic Eucharist in the woods in the church grounds. Randy made the altar. I preached on 'O Canada, land of the maple leaf, land of the Trinity' and had significant conversations afterwards. I can send this sermon as an attachment if you email me via the CA&H office.

After a swim in the garden pool Randy's business colleague, George, drove me to the airport. He is passionate to create a capitalism that makes a profit out of things the planet really needs. In their case they use waste materials (e.g. tree bark discarded by lumber firms) to create bio energy.

Barb and Bob Hudspeth met me at Toronto Pearson airport and drove me north for two hours to their farm and retreat house in the wilds of Elmwood. Here I chilled out, visited the cabin by the little lake and am catching up with emails.
