If you ride back, I have a Parish for you to visit in Beaverton,Oregon.
Holy Trinity is wonderful- young, diverse, welcoming, great pastor, fab website, stirring music (Ken Canedo plays the piano w/ morning choir!) Bob and I went this morning- visited friends in Portland- really enjoyed it- lots we all can learn!
