Thursday, the 29th of January, 2015, was a beautiful, sunny winter day in the Lower Mainland. Bishop Jim Cruickshank, retired Bishop of ther former Diocese of Cariboo had accompanied communications officer, Randy Murray on a picture taking trip and upon arrival at St. Barnabas, New Westminster he was happily reunited with two former students, Vivan Seegers and the Reverend Emilie Smith. Emilie is the rector of St. Barnabas and her long time friend Vivian is very active in First Nations ministry in the diocese. A few years ago, Bishop Jim (who was not a bishop at the time) took over the teaching of a VST class in Social Ethics and Vivian and Emilie were students in that class.
