I offer this report in the place of a sermon, although it has a feel not dissimilar. I spent a week in Barbados, and I spent less than an hour in total (5 quick swims) on the beach. Otherwise I was working. The report attached describes some of what I was doing, what I learned and what I have been led to think now.
I also discovered Banks Beer, a really good drink! And I discovered, with little surprise, how kind and generous are the many strangers who helped me find my way, explained things to me and general treated me with kindness far away from the tourist routes.
