Together again

I was trying to think of the last time Jason and Philip were together – just the two of them. It is probably more than a decade – maybe even back when they were teenagers. You must know that as teenagers these two didn’t exactly act like best friends – not even like friends. Most of the time, it seemed to me at least, they were annoying one another, picking fights, hurling verbal stones at each other. Dinner time and Christmas day were the times they were best behaved but rarely would you have seen them going off together to do something.

Times are changing and of course, they are grown men with their own families, so it was a real delight on our part to see them together for the past few days. Jason had a conference in nearby Banff and Phil was remarkably off work. So they had a chance to actually spend time together.

I wasn’t along for the ride – but the pictures would indicate they did enjoy being together.

Jason’s on his way here today as he makes his way home so it will be nice to see him for a few hours too.download_20170919_135136download_20170919_142322

The weekend is over – we are blessed.

This has been a wonderful weekend of ministry in the Maritime division, and specifically in the Halifax area. We shared devotions at DHQ, been the guests at Spryfield, Fairview, Halifax Citadel and Sackville. I spoke at a lovely musical evening at a local church and met many great people. There is much talent in this division.

My theme for the weekend was people of the resurrection and I mostly preached out of the book of Matthew. I also had the opportunity to do a fair amount of teaching.

Saturday Wendy was quite sick but we did take a quick drive out to Peggy’s Cove.  She stayed in the car while I got some good pictures and this short video!
