And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
– John 12:32
The past month has been eventful. In early August Daphne, Peter and I loaded up a moving truck and drove out from British Columbia. Over the following twelve days we passed eight mountain ranges; followed the Oregon Trail; crossed the Columbia, the Platte, the Missouri, the Mississippi, the Ohio, the Monongahela and the Hudson; and spent good time with many dear friends and relatives. In late August, because of your prayers, we arrived safely at our new home in Jamaica Plain on the campus of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology.
