A few more pictures of the trip to the DMZ (demilitarized zone along the South and North Korea border)

We are in fairly early tonight and I have great WiFi so I’ll upload a few more pics so you can get a better sense of what happened along the DMZ.  The day began with a cermonial drum beating for peace and then to a joint prayer meeting at the 21st Mountain Division’s basecamp along with a spaghetti lunch with the troups (yes..I said spaghetti!).  Afterwards we toured a tunnell found by S. Korea which was dug by N. Korea to aid an invastion before finally viewing N. Korea from the top of a mountain lookout maintained by the military.

Picture of the “punchbowl” valley directly on the other side of a mountain from North Korea. Punchbowl refers the the fertile valley in which fruits and vegetables are produced and sent across Asia.
Commander of the 21st Mountain Division witnessing to his faith that God fights for S. Korea so no need to worry or be anxious. Told us about how God’s hand has been at work for over 22 years to bring him into this position for such a time as this.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past thirteen years. The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
