Diasporic Moot Gathering in Seattle

It is good to be back in Fremont Seattle, where Mark McCleary and I have caught up with Gareth Powell and Karen Ward. Tim Dendy was through here recenty, so there is a strong sense of the Moot-COTA covenant in place. It is now very hot, and we have taken refuge in the local cafe, which is now an annual pilgrimage, as it is by far the best coffee in the City.

Great conversations already, including catching up on Gareth’s thinking about some of the theology he has been reading as part of his course at Cambridge. All good stuff, and reminds me that the more you study the more you realise you don’t know. So taking in easy today before working tomorrow, hopefully it will cool down by then. It now seems ages since I was in London, so I am beginning to look forward to stopping this speaking tour and talking about other things than the Trinity…. However, I have submitted a book proposal to Paraclete again arising out of the conversations on this tour, and you will be pleased to hear that it is not on the Trinity!!!

Mark McCleary has been a bit of a hit over here, with his wit and Irish accent, particularly with some from a more German extraction, he certainly knows how to make an impression! The highlight of the tour so far for me, was a moment at a sunset in Vancouver overlooking the bay and pacific ocean when Mark said – what a beautiful and large moon (under the influence of alcoholic beverages). He mistook a large sodium street lamp to be the moon. I suppose you needed to be there…. You can’t take these Holywoodinians anywhere!

    Je préfère le goût des escargots de marques de Marky. En France ils sont un plat national.
