    Good Morning Family Of God

    Letter 17 August 10, 2020 by Major Brenda & David Allen

    Last night I did not have a thought for today.  For the first time, in many weeks, there was a break in my routine.  I knew it was time to “interrupt my pattern”.  This is one definition of break. I was to enjoy a short break in writing on the life-bringing Word of God.

    God’s Word is the bread of life.  ...

    “Pearson is a lonely place” were words recently shared by Officer colleagues on route to their new appointment.  During these days the airport is quite empty and so are the skies.  Air travel has been slowed drastically.  Closed borders and travel restrictions have limited the possibility for some of seeing family, and...

    Sacred Spaces – the branches of a sycamore

     
    Trees are mentioned quite frequently in the Bible. In fact, the created world is a theme that runs through Scripture from beginning (the creation of the Garden of Eden) to end (the fruitful, healing trees of life in the restored Eden). God often speaks to his people...

    “Whether you gather inside or outside , be safe.”  Those were the parting words of the commentator following the first Maple Leaf hockey game since Covid19 restrictions came into effect.  Not a fan was in the stands inside the stadium, but outside the stadium that usually draws huge crowds, the first hockey game in months...

    Our family has a white car.  When one drives this car, it is with confidence.  This car is a make that we have full confidence in! Yesterday the call came that the car was not performing as it should.  To make a long story short, it had to be left where it was, another car borrowed in its place, and today, the car is in the...

    When we lived in the prairies the saying was, “There are two seasons; winter and construction.”  Yesterday evening I watched this huge machine tear up old pavement, pulling up a depth of at least 6 inches at a time, grinding the old pavement into pieces, depositing it into a waiting truck. I maneuvered the car between the pylons...

    “Sing them over again to me, wonderful words of life.”  I grew up singing these words and for that I am most thankful.  They remind me that there are words that speak and bring life.

    There are still days, when I long to hear ‘words of life’ surrounding Covid19. I know there are hopes for a vaccine, coming, Lord...

    Letter 11 July 20, 2020 By Majors Brenda & David Allen

    A parking lot, as a gift, is one I hadn’t really thought of all too much before.  That large space can be incredibly useful, and not just for cars! Yesterday, as we gathered at our church, under a canopy of rain, changing our outdoor plans tremendously, the parking lot space became a great place for a socially distanced, hatch open,...

    Letter 11 July 16, 2020 By Majors Brenda & David Allen

    We had a lunch date yesterday, just the two of us, in the parking lot of a plaza.  The little restaurant has moved its tables and chairs outside, safely distanced from one another, shaded by umbrellas. It was a delightful lunch. I decided to walk home, where my sermon for Sunday sat waiting to be completed.  After a quick stop for a...

    Letter 10 July 13, 2020 By Majors Brenda & David Allen

    Sunsets that come with an array of colour are always something to enjoy.  Last night, as I drove home from a wonderful meeting, I witnessed clouds in various formations mingled with gentle inviting colour. I paused to consider that never has there been an identical cloud formation. Every sunset sky is a new sight.

    New sunset skies every...
