You know you are known when you can rhyme off connections with those in front of you. I was leading a hymn sing at our local senior’s home yesterday, and mentioned that my mother had turned 87 a few weeks ago. There in front of me was a friend of hers from the early 1950’s, […]
I’m in the midst of rebuilding some cabinets for the library in our house. Saying library doesn’t really explain the area! Our library is the size of a small bedroom, to be used as a study, reading area and work surface. The cabinets are salvaged from ReStore. Unfortunately in the move, the inevitable happened when […]
I like to try new things. That doesn’t mean that change is easy! So, off to a dirt drag and power pulling day at the races. I invited my daughter and her family. RIGHT DECISION. Read about the day in my article for our local social media – Kindersley Social.
I was an early adopter of the internet – back when it wasn’t even called the internet. Staying abreast of all that is happening . . . that’s another question. I am not a Luddite (check that out on Google). I am also not a naive fan. As with any new technology, there is the […]
My sister was in town – with her husband. From Oregon. Saturday night we joined with the “crazy aunties”, another sister and a cousin for an uproarious time. The talking filled all the space in the room for all the time we had together. Then Sunday we had three sets of pastors, their spouses and […]

Well, today, a friend and I started working on putting together a podcast. Actually, it’s just us two talking about being pastors. And about being in a small town. And about being human beings! Lots of fun. We’ll keep you posted.
Well, we have our approval for occupancy of our renovation! Us a year ago. Now the siding is done. No exposed holes in the basement. The hardwood floors are all redone. Makeover of the inside – gutting both floors and installing a basement (ICF – 9 foot tall). Refinished doors (not quite done – we […]
Just thinking about the rural church I am a part of – Kindersley Alliance Church in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, CANADA. I was “born into” the church in 1953, my dad sold the farm in the mid 50s, I came back for four years as youth pastor (1976-1980), left for 25 years then back as Senior Pastor […]
Here are a few lines from a song written by Hoozier (2014 – From Eden). A comment on the song from genius.com. “The point of view is of the devil looking at something innocent and seeing it as a missing part. The song tries to woo a woman while admitting that the relationship would be […]
