Welcoming

Things have been pretty quiet around here, and our trusty coordinator isn’t back from vacation with his family yet.

On Friday evening we went to the executive presbyter’s house for dinner. It was a celebration of welcome and friendship, not only for us but for several others who were visiting or returned from their travels. We had a wonderful time, with so much life experience gathered in one room. One of the many who were being welcomed was the new pastor of the Valledupar church, who was there with his wife. He is a beloved friend of the presbytery, a Mennonite pastor who served at Fourth Presbyterian here in Barranquilla for a number of years. Now he has returned from Chocó to work in Valledupar.

All around, I had a wonderful time basking in the conversation, which alternated between the serious and the ridiculous in different streams swirling around us.
