Today’s random job of the day–duct taping bike blessings.
Again, there is a very important purpose behind this random job. Bonita, one of Hope Centre Ministries’ dedicated volunteers, Harvey (HCM board member) and his wife, Joyce are heading off on a 9 week bike tour with Sea to Sea. They will bike across North America to spread awareness and raise money in support of those living in poverty around the world. You can find out more about the tour at seatosea.org.
Yesterday, HCM hosted a supper to bless the three bikers.
The bike blessings are our way of supporting the bikers as they head off on the tour. They were signed by members of HCM. The blessings read as follows “Bless my bike, dear God, and bless my feet, too. May I ride in the clear air of your Spirit and meet you at every turn. Amen.”
The blessings will be attached to the frame of the bikes and will serve as a reminder to the three bikers that God is with them the whole way. For some, the idea of their name traveling such a far distance is very exciting!
You’re probably wondering where the duct tape comes in–the duct tape will protect the blessing from the weather on the trip–rain, mud, wind…
Here is a picture of the bike blessings:
