Sunday was clear and cold. I took advantage of this opportunity to walk to the place of worship and take a few pictures along the way. The assembly was well attended and included several visitors. Two of these were men who date back to the time Joe was here. Another was our dear old friend and brother, Dinyu. Though only a few months from turning 90, he is energetic with a sparkle in his eyes.
Since I was privileged to preach, I addressed our recognition of our relationships within spiritual community. It was well removed and generated discussion afterwards. Following the assembly, a group of about 10 of us went to a nearby restaurant for lunch. It was a fine meal (provided by Joe), and a wonderful visit.
Later in the evening Joe and I were able to visit and discuss the work before going to see Biss again. It was also our opportunity to tell Joe goodbye and thank him for the very profitable work he did over a three week period.
