37 years of friendship & adventures - and still it goes on..
Kyle Northway - The best man i know - gentle & kind,, curious & creative, thoughtfully sacrificial - my friend (an honor to say so).- Definitely a Q-bean (see Blog)
We've been on many adventures together - and we've dreamed Kingdom dreams & done Kingdom schemes - so much so our church once said we couldn't go on adventures any more together because we always came back with some crazy idea to drag people into. Well many years later & still it goes on..
This time we decided to explore our own back yard (LA) by train Recently we took the Metro from Long Beach to Downtown - Coming in the back side it was hard to get our bearings - until we stumbled on The Pantry then all things became clear (our North Star) Of course breakfast was had at the counter (that''s where the characters are assigned) Too much food so we found a gentleman enjoying the sun from his city corner with whom to share. We then headed to Union Station - now revamped into a 40's style station . There we had drinks & talks and it was good..Then over to Olvera St (LA's beginnings)
This, along with our previous day's trek to Malibu for an innovative theology conference on Pepperdine's beautiful campus overlooking the ocean, made for a good 2-day adventure.
So fortunate am i to have such a friend & such adventures..In recent times as i was going through a very difficult time, Kyle came. We went to the San Franciscan - another North Star. And my friend listened and thoughtfully encouraged me as he'd done for 37 years - it was so refreshing - cool waters & fresh breezes restoring my soul.
Thanks Kyle for being a genuine kingdom partner -a risk-taking adventurer - showing me what Kingdom folks look like. But most of all thanks or being my friend.
