On this trip I stayed in Harlem to be near City Seminary, where we were interviewing students for the Learning Pastoral Imagination Project.

My niece said I should become a Junior Ranger at the Statue of Liberty National Park . . . But I had to settle for this distance shot across the water.

Dinner the first night out was the best meal of the trip at Whym, highlighted by salmon accompanied by butternut squash soufle, spinach and brie.

Tomorrow morning I’ll worship with Metro Baptist in Hell’s Kitchen. Then I’ll fly home to Nashville.
