The Kingdom of God is a dance. Jesus invites us to partake in this dance. Not as the one who leads but as the one who follows his steps and moves.
Here I will write about my life...about how I dance (and often stumble) with Jesus.

Travis Update - Week Three
Travis Harms (a young adult from my church) is doing his internship in northern Manitoba this summer. He is asking for people to pray for him. Here is an update:
This week we have heard nothing about the suicide pact. It has not been brought up as of yet. I will take no news as good news.
spent a few mornings at the soup kitchen and met a fellow from
Pukatawagon who apparently I was able to comfort and to put at ease. He
mentioned that he was really anxious about getting a job; we discussed
residential schools and the harm done in the name of Christianity and we
talked about faith also. Good guy, glad to have met him.
theological issue that is very prevalent in The Pas is the working of
the Holy Spirit. There are several churches that are promoting the
“second filling” of the Holy Spirit and there are many new believers in
this church. A fellow here, Peter Constant who is also a KBI student has
been sharing with some of these young believers about what he has
learned and he is concerned that they are not deceived or led astray. As
Mennonites, the natural tendency has been to exclude the working of the
Holy Spirit and we need to admit and repent of our guilt in that area.
However, we also need to seek a biblical position of the Spirit; such a
position likely includes speaking in tongues but likely also includes
quiet promptings and workings within our hearts.
have been learning that people here somewhat can seem aloof in general
life. For example, at a gospel jamboree I sat next to a fellow that I
had met at the soup kitchen, we both recognized each other but we did
not chat between songs. However, the next time that I saw him he greeted
me with a smile. People generally do not make eye contact or face each
other when talking. This has taken some getting used to.
for Steeprock Bay Bible Camp registration in Moose Lake and Cormorant
would be appreciated. Also keep a lady Louise who recently lost a son in
your prayers. His body was just found in the river and his funeral will
