Yesterday was a great day at Knox Church! Not only did we celebrate Presbyterian Sharing Sunday, we also successfully did our first ever fire drill. We evacuated the building after singing “We are marching in the Light of God” J and I pronounced the benediction in our parking lot.
After the service was over, a visitor introduced himself to me. He is from Miami and it literally just driving through. I wonder if anyone who was at church noticed the motorcycle with Miami licence plates in the parking lot? Andrew Hayward Smith is riding from Miami to the Arctic Circle, across Canada to Nova Scotia, and back to Miami for a total of 15,000 miles in 120 days. Andrew calls this an “interactive fundraising journey” and it is great to meet him and welcome him into our midst if only for a short time. Andrew is on his way home to Miami, where he will be warmly received by his church, Miami Shores Presbyterian Church.
Thank you Andrew for worshipping with us and we wish you a safe journey as you do God’s work. Talk about Presbyterian Sharing in action!Yours in Christ, Emma.
