Congratulations; time to break out the bubbly and party

Future generations will be asking, "Where were you May 9th, 2013?"

Freedom to live in the way you want,

not because certain rules of school govern you.

Not adhering to strict diet of controls.

what you can and what you cannot do.

What supplements of life do we need to live this painfull life we in

not withstanding and adding on all the pollutants of mind

to control your every thought,

How did we get here?

This is a truly mind bending program, very informative, well explained.

Think of a River

Think of water

Falling as rain

Bubbling up from springs

Running down as streams and creeks

Until they meet in the larger flow of a river.


Think of a River;

Water flowing;

Carrying silt and debris

From all the places it has touched.

From all the streams and creeks that have fed it


Think of the ocean

Receiving the water and all that it carries

From all the rivers

From all the streams

Tragedy and trouble struck one day,

The earthquake wiped my whole village away.

As I stand amidst the dust and rubble

Moving with the Spirit

It's been a long time - again - since I blogged. LIfe often takes us on twists and turns that we least expect. That happened this year, in a big way. In July I saw a vacancy posted at Humber United in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. By mid-August I had said yes. It had to be the shortest search in the history of the church.

On November 7th, I said farewell to my congregation of five years, Glen Ayr United in Scarborough. What started as a one-year supply had stretched over five years, and many changes. It was a wonderful farewell, and a wonderful end to a good chapter.

Life and Death

 A few years ago I stumbled upon this poem. There was no author mentioned in the resource in which I found it, and I've often found it a valuable reading to use (especially right before an interment) as it really does (to me at least) put life and its purpose (even with all its struggles and challenges) into some sort of perspective. I just thought I'd share it.
