This afternoon we took a walk in the UBC botanical gardens and along the tree top pathways. Although terrifying, being up in the tree tops was refreshing, and exhilarating, and beautiful. The air was fresher than it has been all week and there was a deep appreciation between us all about how beautiful our world is and how it miraculously keeps us all breathing with nothing in return.

Their pilgrimage culminates at Corner Brook, Newfoundland, where they will participate in the national gathering of the United of Church of Canada (aka General Council), working on behalf of us all.)
