St. Martin's in the Fields
And another thought about unlikely connections. St. Martin of Tours, after whom this church is named, probably has many churches named after him, but one of them is in our little village in Eastern Ontario. Would he have ever imagined that in some far away, as yet unknown land, a church would be named after him? Which also reminds me of a wonky little clay cup in the British museum
circa about 2AD made by some Roman. Not a well made cup, likely an early attempt, and yet after all these centuries it sits in the museum with thousands of people oohing and aahing over it. You never know how what you do is going to impact others.
