Where in the world is Pastor David?

Motorcycle David

A new episode of the on-going motorbike adventures of our intrepid priest begins Labor Day weekend.

David is heading east to visit Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Montreal, and the Erie Canal.  He’ll be blogging along the way and would love to read your comments.  You can follow the adventure right here.


Soup’s On!

Camping on a motorcycle can be a little challenging because there’s a limit to what you can carry.  Since my luggage boxes David Campinghold a lot, however, I have everything I need.  I don’t always get to park the bike this close to the tent, but when I can, it makes unpacking and repacking much quicker.  Since I’ll be traveling a lot at first, I don’t expect to be very particular about campsites, but once I’m in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, I hope to keep a site for a couple days while I travel around the area exploring.

All the cooking gear fits nicely in the green army surplus tanker tool bag.  The hatchet comes from my great-grandfather’s old tool box.  I made a sheath for it that allows the hammer head to be used for stubborn tent stakes.

Looks like the water is boiling.  gotta go.

Elk Rapids Book Study Group

One of the most popular new books this past year is The Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth Zealot bookby Reza Aslan. It’s great for discussion and offers a fresh perspective on Jesus’ life and mission. The San Francisco Herald says this absorbing, reader-friendly book, written by a Muslim scholar, does “full justice to the real Jesus, and honors him in the process.” The Book Study, facilitated by Rev. Dr. Kathy Kircher (phone: 231-264-9046), will be held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on four Mondays (August 18 & 25; September 8 &  15) are from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. Donation: $10.00.
