Back in the field
My health continues to struggle towards life and with all the paranoia out there, I'm glad I'm getting better.
Had a great couple of days in Calgary, working with some young adults who are living together in a house and creating community together. This is a cool thing that we as a Covenant church are trying to do here in Canada. Creating houses of community where you can move to and work or go to school, but the value and purpose is to live in community and grow together. This is our first attempt at it and it's exciting.
This house has a more introverted collection of individuals, but they are quality people, just learning to live life together. They are creating a Spiritual Order for the house as they go along, and they interact as those growing in their faith in God.
I get to be their spiritual director and so I'll go down and meet with them three or four times this year.
It's also good because it gets me into a city of a million people and after having to sit in unmoving traffic for an hour yesterday I'm happy to be back in The Field.
