It has been a snowy, lazy Sunday. Had a chance to read one of my Christmas books. Tom gave me the book entitled “Abraham” – A journey to the Heart of Three Faiths written by Bruce Feiler, New York Times Bestselling Author of Walking the Bible.

“At a moment when the world is asking ‘Can the religions get along?’ Abraham stands as the shared ancestor of Jews, Christians and Muslims. He holds the key to our deepest fears — and our possible reconciliation.”

It has been a very interesting read so far. Am looking forward to a continued good read.

Christmas Season is over. It was wonderful while it lasted. Christmas Eve came with a surprise visit by Santa. Made for some great excitement in the Reimer household. Christmas Day was great as we spent the day with some pretty special people in our lives, Jordon, Wendy and Mark Cooper. Great time of exchanging gifts and good conversation over some great coffee!! You never want for conversation with Jordon and Wendy around. Darren, Sherryl Friesen and their three children joined us for our Christmas meal. It was a wonderful day all-round. I drank a little too much coffee and ended up cleaning the house until about 3:00 am. At least I had nothing to do the next day.

Spent Friday, December 27th, in Prince Albert visiting my sister Doris and her husband Lorne. Tom, Tamara and Berke Buchko came as well. Berke connected with Brooke and Kelly. Great day! We had given my brother-in-law the book “Young Evangelicals” by Robert Webber. We had some great conversation regarding it. Lorne is a Traditionalist/Pragmatist which made the conversation very lively. Lorne has influenced many people with the giftedness he has in teaching the Scriptures. He is a great guy – even if I don’t always agree with him.

Brooke and Kelly Graham are coming over for the whole day tomorrow. Am looking forward to hearing all their experiences over the past three months while in the Dominican Republic.
