May 10th, Tour Day 19 - Cambridge to ?







And so we go our separate ways. I was up early this morning to catch a coach to Nottingham, where I am now visiting with friends.

Ja' red had already left before me (on his way to catch an earlier plane to Toronto) and many of the singers were just starting to get up as I was leaving the guest house. It is unbelievable to think that in a matter of hours, people from this group became scattered across Europe and North America.

Because I did not return to Canada with the group, I am now also awaiting news of the final journey. And even though the tour has ended, the blog is not going to end here. I have invited the students to send me some highlights from the trip. So as I get submissions I will post them.

It has been a fabulous journey.
Thank you to all who have hosted us.
Thank-you to all who have prayed for us.
Thank-you to all who have supported us.

We sang the following to each of the churches that provided for us, and I think it is appropriate here:
(I wasn't familiar with the song before the tour...I think I have the words right. I know the tune is correct!)

For food and hospitality, we thank-you now dear friend
For kindness we will not forget, where e'er our journey ends
We thank-you, we thank-you
May God be good to you.
For food and hospitality, we thank-you now dear friend.


And as a final blessing, I can't resist adding the following (The clergy often said this to us at the end of a prayer after a performance):

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the love of God
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
be with you all evermore.
Amen
