It’s no secret that I love dogs! All I have to do is see a person walking their dog and it makes me smile! I went for a walk earlier this week, and my smile quickly left my face when I saw a dog almost get hit by a car. It wasn’t the dog’s fault. It wasn’t really the fault of the driver either. If I was to pass out blame it would be squarely in the lap of the dogs’ owner. She was looking down when she should have been looking up. She was more interested on the screen of her hand-held device than the welfare of her dog.
here is often more going on than what we can immediately recognize! This is not about looking for a dark spirit under every rock, or about spiritualizing all of our problems away. The material world needs to be enjoyed and engaged while recognizing things in the material world can be significantly influenced by dynamics in the spiritual dimension of life. Both are equally real!
A gift left ‘unopened’ is of no value! Sabbath is a gift and when we fail to ‘keep it’—we neglect the gift that was generously given to us by God himself.
Wounds are real, not imagined. They need to be processed responsibly and not ignored. To be hurt is to be human and to heal requires the help of God and his healing community.
I recently heard a statement that painted a vivid picture of what it can be like when we choose not to forgive. "When we make the decision not to forgive someone, it's like us drinking poison and expecting the one who offended us to die."
It felt impolite, even rude, to tell my friends about Jesus, as if I were breaking some unwritten rule or law. Telling people about Jesus, outside the context of a mission’s trip to a foreign country, had become something only the weird Christians did – and no one wants to be a weird Christian. Sound familiar?
A long time ago, when I had just learnt to drive, I ran out of petrol on a lonely country road. I gratefully accepted some fuel from a nearby farmer. What he didn't tell me was that it was a mixture designed not for a car, but for a lawn mower. I got back home all right, but the next day the car behaved like a sick animal, coughing and spluttering.
In our secular culture, we may be much more familiar with the season of time when Tim Horton’s offers the ‘Roll up the Rim’ campaign. I never seem to win – but that’s besides the point. ‘Role up the Rim’ often runs beside the season of Lent – depending on how the calendar falls each year. I think Tim Horton’s historically decided they didn’t want us to fast coffee!
The word ‘hospitality’ is commonly used in the restaurant, or hotel industry. It comes from an Old French word that is related to ‘hospital’ – a place where people are given excellent care! At its root understanding is the idea of being an ‘excellent host, who provides friendliness to guests!’
The Enneagram is an ancient study of the nine different types of people. They are our family, friends, students, co-workers and team mates. The Enneagram helps us understand our predisposition towards certain behaviors, or what motivates us toward certain actions. Building thriving relationships requires mutual understanding and respect. Becoming a student of human personalities can provide huge benefits across all of our relationships.
