When serving the crew their daily slop in the port of Juneau, June heard the sailors teasing one of the fresh “recruits”—calling him “Moose”. He had raised a bull moose from a baby, and it followed him everywhere. It raised a ruckus as the captain captured the young man, which earned him a whipping. June noticed Moose had kind eyes, despite his fresh wounds.
“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.”
