I've been back to work for a week, it still doesn't seem I'm truly back until the worship service occurs. (So much for ministers saying they work more than just Sundays...). Although I was back in the pulpit this morning, it was nothing like the pulpit that we saw in Malta:
The day was hot, 36˚C, as we travelled to the historical cities of Rabat, Mdina, and Mosta. The island of Malta is biblically significant as the shipwreck site of the apostle Paul; hence all the churches we saw. It's also a scenic Mediterranean island, hence all the souvenir shops that we patronized.
