Day of Discovery Future

Our group was one of the first to be done
So I took time to see the hall from up high
Some groups were still in debate about what to write down
Others were filling their Poster Boards
As you see there was a real good mix of ages
When you were done you hung your Poster on the wall
Everyone got 3 stars
After all the Boards were hung and read
We could put our stars in places on the boards
Apparently using God given gifts
in the right places got lots of stars 
It was a good day

Day of Discovery

First we talked about past church activities that had an impact on us

This was my little group
one person from every group shared
often youth programs and small groups came up
but also Bethel and Cathegism
Then we shared sentiments about the programs we currently enjoy
Those "one word" sentiments we put on the wall
In groups that kind of belong together
Every group was only allowed to share 3 words

a nice colourful wall with lots of good stuff

Just before lunch we thought about how circles of
love God
Love Each Other and
Love neighbours
intertwined in our church community

time for lunch

sandwich and fruit

Looking for Spring

we went out with 1/2 of our Coffee-Break leaders
It was so much fun
as an extra we went to Webster's Falls
It was not to cold, just -1C
The partly Frozen Falls were beautiful
We found Spring at Tara Greenhouses

this time the owl was way to far for my little camera to get a good shot

No oil out of wood

The wood pile is done

The last logs are in the fire

The oil part is not working
So we got the campfire wood

And then it did get fixed so we didn't need this snowy load

Grandpa on the mend

Cor looks good in regular clothes

He does get quite a few visitors


Do all roads lead to God?

In the Christian view there is only one way

All other religions have in common that you can "save yourself" In Christianity there is only one way, to repent and accept Jesus Christ as saviour and Lord. You cannot save yourself

We can all coexist but we should not blend in

Eternal Destinations

I went to a seminartoday
It is called Eternal Destinations

It has 2 parts, Heaven and Hell
We started with hell today

Most people know John 3:16
For God so loved the world....

Few people know John 3:18
He who believes in God's son is not judged guilty, he who does not believe has already been judged guilty, because he has not believed in God's only son

Walk around the Farm

A beautiful sunny day
Barn door open

Cultivator burried

So is the wood and the hay wagon 
here is the hay Tedder, not much sticking out
but there is water in the creek
and the broken branches of the maples leak sap
it's just so cold it still freezes
