From my heart
Normally I have my theme pretty much worked out by Friday. Not this week. Actually, I’ve wrestled over and over with two main thoughts. First, I wrote about encouragement just a week or so ago and I don’t like to be repetitious; next and most challenging, I am going to attempt to address a current and to some, a most divisive event. Read more...

Masks
One of the most challenging aspects of these past crazy months for this extrovert has been the isolation but thankfully we have a large back deck that allows me to stand and chat with the great neighbours living on either side of us. Read more...

Why sing?
Though not unexpected nor surprising, our air is smoke-filled today. Thankfully, so far, any fires we’ve had in our neck of the woods have been small and quickly extinguished. It’s that blanket of smoke that settled down on us this morning that’s sapping my strength. On a positive note, it’s giving me a reason to rest and do nothing but essential chores. (Medical officer’s advice). Read more...

The rewards of faith
This morning brought a gift to some of us. Normally common-place on the West Coast, rain didn’t reign this year! As thousands of acres of forest have been consumed this summer by drought, much prayer has ascended to God in the form of pleas for rain. We actually had a bit last night, not nearly enough to turn our grass green again, but we had rain. I hesitate to say much about causes and conclusions, given the reality of climate change, but in so many sectors of life, God often graciously intervenes in difficult circumstances. Read more...

Commitment
One of the great pleasures of my life is going on my morning walk; getting my much-needed exercise is part of the reason but just as important to me is seeing the friends I’ve made over the years. We rarely see each other except for these early morning circles around the track but we genuinely listen and care for each other.  Read more...

From 'doing' to 'being'
I’ve always been and have been known to be, busy. I look back with enjoyment and satisfaction on the roles I’ve filled in churches we’ve served and in communities where we’ve lived. While I’m going to list a few roles, it’s not meant as a boastful exercise, just an enumeration to remind me of the privileges I’ve enjoyed over many decades. Read more...

Sheltered and secure
During these weeks of oppressive heat, one of my favourite places to sit and relax is on a lawn chair situated under our back deck. While I still have a great view of the yard and of back-alley traffic, I’m close enough to neighbours on both sides to hold a conversation without leaving the comfort of my cool spot. Read more...

If I perish, I perish
As I continue my daily Bible reading, I’ve just finished reading the book of Esther. Honestly, I found it a welcome change from the huge lists of people, their names and details of their responsibilities. Having said that, I also derived some much-needed encouragement and inspiration from this lovely and powerful lady. Here’s background information. Read more...
