I am at The Cove – a Billy Graham Association training centre. It’s been a favourite place for a few of our pastors, so I thought I’d try it out and get my Christian Education Units here. Professional development is a core value for our tribe. Most all professions have a professional development requirement – […]

Had a very nice time away with Karlene. I love when vacations are not busy but are times to catch your breath and be re-energized. Praying for you as you find breathing space with God this summer. I spoke at Maple Grove Camp this past Sunday. Apparently they had a “wonderful” camp week with speaker […]

Karlene and I enjoyed very much the warm welcome we received by the Westport congregation on Sunday morning. Westport FM is asking the big question: “how do we accept responsibility for our community?” They seem quite motivated to discover what God would have for them. As I met with some of their leaders I was […]

This past weekend I was in Calgary for their Regional Gathering. It was a warm beautiful day in Red Deer. Though we don’t have a church in Red Deer, it is a middle ground for our Alberta churches. Thank you each of you for making that effort to attend, pray, listen, discuss, worship, and fellowship. […]

I sure hope that you had a refreshing long weekend! Today two important prayer opportunities that are time sensitive: 1. The Free Methodist Church in Sri Lanka will be in court this Thursday and we are praying for justice and resolution. They are eager to get out of the courts (and all the costs: time […]
