Well, with a couple of small delays and smooth flights we landed in London at 9:30 am London time, 4:30 am your time. Yes, we’re tired! We hauled ourselves around London, particularly as this is Kierstin’s first time here we wanted her to see a few things. We were off to St Martin-in-the-Fields. While most Americans know St Martin’s for the fine music programs that take place there, St Martin’s is most famous in London for the significant work they do with homeless and addicted folks. They run the largest homeless ministry in London. After lunch in St Martin’s crypt [the proceeds help pay for their charitable ministries] we went across the street to the National Portrait Gallery [there are WAY too many famous paintings there!], walked down to Buckingham Palace, hopped a subway to the British Museum [the Brits really did loot well!]. After a couple of coffees interspersed through the day to fight off jet-lag, we made it to the Highbury Centre, where we’re staying for the week. We had dinner with our instructor, Jason Fout, who was most anxious to hear about all of the things happening at Trinity. After dinner, we’re back to the Centre for an early evening. I think all of our group is soundly asleep!
Fun fact for the day: The last time Dr. Miller was in London; all of the paper money was a bit different! He’s walking around with a pocket of money no one wants!! Go figure.
If you’re interested in a few pictures for the day, go over and look at Jesus on the Go.
As an aside, we think we got seven miles each for the Journey to Jerusalem.
