Waking up


This morning, waking up… … I couldn’t help but to think about the children in the brothels.  A few stories I heard from last prayer meeting for Cambodia trickled in my head.  Somewhere, on the other side of the world, is night time. And somewhere, on the other side of the world, a kid is being sold for a few dollars. And somewhere, on the other side of the world...



This morning I wasn’t feeling well and took the day off. The afternoon was spent cleaning up my shelves. Most of the books were purchased for the courses I take at McMaster Divinity Collenge. I also have a compilation of triathlon, training, nutrition, business related and World War 2. Some I bought out of curiousity. Some were given as a gift.  Some were course requirement. Some were...



The soul is like a wild animal – tough, resilient, resourceful, savvy.  It knows how to survive in hard places.  But it is also shy.

Dark clouds had been covering the city for much of the day. Sprinkling here and...

Reconciliation and peace..appearance of weakness


In most heated situations, when you know you can win the argument because you have every facts and points down to the bone… know their counter arguments and you know how to counter those counter arguments.  You know how to work the crowd.  Get them to view what you view.  Jab a word here and there to tick the other side off.  Or say a few things to make the other...
