Fish, Mark Shea, Running and Talks near Seattle

by Steve Ray on August 30, 2011

One of the things I love about traveling around giving talks at parishes and conferences is meeting old friends. Mark Shea, fellow convert, blogger, speaker and all around fun guy, was free for lunch while I’m here giving talks at Holy Family Parish in Kirkland Washington outside Seattle.

Mark and I went to a great seafood restaurant on the water’s edge on Puget Sound. We were able to catch up on news of our families and ministries and what we’re writing. We also recalled fun memories of working together on the scripts for my Footprints of God DVDs. We then walked and talked along the shore with the sea breeze and the sound of ship horns and seagulls. Nice time for sure. Sad to say good-bye. Keep up the good work Mark!

Now on the give my final talk at Holy Family parish with Fr. Nagel and the delightful Bob and Pam Gunderson who have befriended me and organized this well-attended and very enthusiastic parish mission.

My talk tonight is about fish! The title is ” Swimming Upstream: Living the Christian Life in a Neo-pagan World”. I begin by discussing the life of salmon.

Hi Steve and Janet….you just have friends all over the U.S. and the world, it seems….so enriching…..
I just now bought your book, “Crossing The Tiber” and sent you an email re it and maybe a visit to the San DIego area if I can pull it off…

I realize that you get many emails, but I hope you will be able to take the time to read mine….your book is “turning on the lightbulb” for me with every page……
