Pic Gallery: Along the Cincinnati Riverfront

A Picture Gallery: Along the Cincinnati Riverfront This past weekend, we got some much needed respite with a quick trip over to southern Ohio. On Saturday, we saw Paul Simon in concert, and then Sunday spent some leisurely hours walking along the Ohio River at Smale Riverfront Park. It’s a delightful venue, with spectacular views of […]

Annual Review: Pictures from 2016 + A Chance to Vote!

Annual Review Pictures from 2016 2016 was a fun year for me taking pictures. After using my Canon in the early part of the year I got a new camera for my birthday — an Olympus Pen-F.

A Highlight of the Summer of 2014

This is a summer with a lot of centennial connections for us and for the world. We visited Monhegan Island the other day, off the coast of Maine. In 1614, John Smith was there, making this year the island’s quadricentennial. We attended the celebration of our first church’s 200th anniversary. East Dover Baptist Church, East […]

A Foggy Day on the Water

Fog is one of the metaphors we have used for the wilderness journey. You can’t see your way clear. The landscape around you is vague and undefined. You are locked in to seeing a limited locale and you have to make your way carefully lest you run into something your eyes could not anticipate. Our […]
