We have a new computer. Jordon came this morning and hooked everything up. Works great! Tom was back in Saskatoon from McLean Lake – had some great conversations and good coffee. He is a remarkable young man. Talked to Tamara on Monday evening. It was hot and muggy in Bangkok. She has been having a great time with Renee and Nicole. She heads for Taiwan on February 10th.

We had some great discussion at our Small Group last night about the whole topic of “Tithing”and “Stewardship”of God’s resources. All that is created, including ourselves, was created by God and are his. How are we managing his resources? Nothing that we have is ours we are just the managers of it for a short time. Some good conversation about debt load and spending habits. We all need work in this area.

Had a great visit with my good friend Donna Nakrayko yesterday. We always have enlightening conversations. Talking about how we experience God in our lives. How do we relate to others when we talk about what God is doing. We experience God in such different ways and we need each other to learn from. We are created for community and not isolation. We want to share our spiritual journeys. Donna sees so many things different than I do and I learn so much from her. She has such vivid pictures in her mind and when she shares them with me I can never see a sunset or a rose again without seeing it from her perspective. I love �t when she talks about “gold nuggets”. These are experiences she has had and learned so much from and she holds them out to others to learn from them. However, many of us do not see the “gold nugget” and grab it. When we dont get it, we are the losers. I need to listen and accept these “gold nuggets”from others. We need to learn from each other. That is what community is all about. She is a wonderful friend, and actually her family is pretty special too.
