Cornwall Cogitation #15, Sunday 15 May 2016–Our coffeemaker gave us an overflowing welcome home to Elkhart this morning–at least I take it as a welcome. Hot coffee and grounds overflowed onto counter and floor.
After clean-up, I found a small shelf in the machine that read, “Please clean me.” Did it. It works. You’re welcome!
Pentecost Sunday stretched us with messages from Scripture, sermon, songs, prayer, communion and fellowship. The Holy Spirit worked transformative wonders in breaking down barriers in the past and continues to do so today. “Holy Spirit, come with power,” we sang from Hymnal #26.
We’re “home from home.” Yesterday’s sky looked like winter. Today the sun shines and a cold breeze blows. Lo and behold, a few sea gulls are riding the strong currents over the St Joseph River in what looks like practice for the Olympics.
So, winter and spring Cornwall Cogitations 2016 come to a close. I’ll see about doing more posts from time to time. In the meantime, these pictures give a glimpse of the week:

Glad you had a good time in Cornwall and hope your time in Elkhart will also be great. Hope to see you sometime soon.
Welcome home to the U.S.,dear friends! I love the picture of your luggage! What brand is it? It looks very appropriate for such travels as you undertake abroad.
The luggage is Samsonite. We’ve had it for two years and already it looks ancient – lots of dirt and other smudges from being thrown around. The red one is Jan’s. We need to be in touch to talk about a time to get together this summer or fall. Or both. Peace, joy and love to you!
Keep writing, John. I enjoy it! Mary Mishler
John, your writings and photos this season in Cornwall have been splendid! Stanley Kropf
Welcome home! I sensed it was a bit bittersweet to leave one home for another, but I’m glad you’ve returned safely. Nice shot of the Elkhart River!
You send us such interesting ideas!
