It has been a day.
The Veritas Seminar has been well worth our precious Saturday morning time. Gerald Froese led us through the process of assessing where we are as a church – Healthy Missional, Stable, Critical Moment, or At Risk. That was very interesting. Seems the general feeling is that we are somewhere between a Critical state and Stable with a strong desire to move towards healthy and missional.
Now may God give us strength to follow his lead. There seem to be some things we are working at that definitely are getting us out into the community around us.
I, personally have been fighting off some sort of illness. I thought that I had simply picked up a cold and that yesterday it was pretty much over. Then last night and today the aching started. So after getting home from the seminar, I headed straight to bed. Only got up to go for a practice drive with Nan, who drives his driver’s test on Monday. Parallel parked at least six times. If he keeps his wits about him I think he will pass.
Then home, grilled a few smokies for supper and went to bed again.
And then the band showed up. Makeshift Innocence. Playing at one of the local pubs tonight and then at On The Rocks in Edmonton on Sunday night. They will all find some corner to sleep tonight. And the rest of the smokies are history.
