London Journal – Friday, March 20, 2009

Somewhere in our travels this week I came across this commentary on life: Every problem has its price, but if you worry about it, you pay double.

In an earlier blog I mentioned flowering trees. Here is one at a church two blocks from out hotel.


Late morning today we met with one of our team at a local restaurant for administrative planning.

At 1:30 I had an appointment with R. L., director of a ministry with whom we cooperate in several ways. We discussed the relationship between our two organizations (which is a good relationship) and details relating to a person who hopes to come in August for a one-year internship.

Then we went to East London, Borough of Newham, (in which the 2012 Olympics will be held) for conversation and tea at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A.M. However, when the tea and cakes were finished, we found taht their invitation to “tea” meant for supper! The afternoon tea was just an extra. So we stayed for a shepherd’s pie supper and more, lively conversation.

  1. Your “commentary on life” note rings true in my heart and experience. In fact here is an added thought:
    “Every problem has its price, but if you worry about it, you pay double… and when you offer the problem to God in prayer, it is transformed into a miracle of grace!

    • Alvin, how good of you to take time to comment on my comments! Tell Uncle Glenn I said “Hi.”
