A Glimpse of New York City

Today was our first full day in New York City. We are here for the Global Ministries seminar. We spent most of the day at the General Board of Global Ministries learning about what the UMC does around the world. It was a great day (we’ll reflect on what we’re learning later when we have more time).

After our sessions today, a group of us got a better glimpse of the city. We started with dinner at John’s Pizzaria which is housed in a building that used to be a church, sadly enough. At their website, click on gallery to see photos, which are much better than the few I took inside the building. After dinner, we walked to the The Top of the Rock at the Rockefeller Center where we ascended to the observation decks (67th, 69th, and 70th floors). It’s cold on the ground; it’s even colder in the sky!

Tomorrow, we will visit churches/ministries that are engaging their city in ministry, which will give us an even better glimpse of the city, but also what God is doing in the city. It should be a great experience. In the meantime, here are a few photos from today …
