  1. Good Morning David from British Columbia!
    Hoping your foot is better this morning….I have been reading your walking blog intermittantly since our daughter Kristen (Springthorpe) sent us the link. Its interesting noting the distance you cover daily. Neal and I try to do a minimum of 2 kms daily and that has ranged up to 8-10 km at times. I marvel at doing up to 23 kms in one day and still being able to carry on for the same distance the next day. It is a great way to think and clear your mind though. It will be interesting noting the scenery as you do notice everything differently too. Also wonderful to meet others along the way and enjoy their company….renew friendships… Blessings to you and God’s speed…

  2. How wonderful to be able to follow your walk, David!
    Janet and I have been talking and thanks to her I am now following you online.
    God bless you on your journey and may God be blessing you in abundance! (and keeping your strength up :)) Look forward to hearing more about it all when you hit England.

  3. I read and enjoy your blog every evening.
    The pics are a great addition as they give ‘us readers’ a sense of presence.
    Thanks to all involved in the publication. You continue to be a blessing to us.

  4. I have been reading your daily blog with great interest,
    it is wonderful that parishioners are so friendly and
    helpful on your route.
    I had some problems getting the blogs at first until I
    went on the Diocesan Web Page; Bishop’s Pilgrimage
    and I could easily get them there.
    It was interesting to see David Bell and Cindy Derksen’s
    pictures (from our Parish).God Bless you and your group
    on the remainder of your trip.
    Yours in Christ; Wendell

  5. The blog is the highlight of the evening. Having begun this good thing,
    Bishop, you will have to continue! When you return to the world of cars and offices, consider a blog a week about your often amazing, often unique encounters around the Diocese. I’m enjoying the news about my fellow Anglicans as well as seeing photos of churches and congregations I don’t know but would like to get to know. The NB Anglican and the E-News are great ways to keep up; a blog of personal experiences would be a wonderful addition.

    1. I read your blog tonight………..Retired Rev. John Cathcart had the piece on facebook………….I attended St. Margaret’s stone church when young, then St. Bartholemews in St. John, and Rev. Sharpe’s church in Riverview…….and then All Saints church in Marysville till Rev. Cathcartt retired…………….

      Interesting read…………….quite the pilgrimage…………….Bishop.
