The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

I am in ministry with the Olds-Sundre Pastoral Charge of the United Church of Canada. I've served in a rural farm community, in a resource / tourist based community, in an urban city church, and nw back in rural ministry (over 6 years in this community). In August 2019, I began my 2nd sabbatical...the focus of which is to study what helps rural congregations thrive and flourish. That time concluded in December 2019. Today, I resurrect this blog, as we journey through this time of uncertainty as a result of a world affected by COVID 19 or coronavirus. So, journey with me, as we stay connected in this time of "social distance."

    I wonder if you got to see Ralph & Bev Milton? or maybe Jim & Joan Taylor. Jim’s email columns mean a great deal to me. If you don’t get them, I’d like t send something he sent yesterday.

I have met Ralph Milton in the past, but not his spouse, or the Taylors, although I have read some of both of their writings. If you’d like to send something – the work email is fine, I have an “out of office” notice, however I am checking messages every few days. It is
