Well, dear Pilgrim Pals, I have arrived home from my wanderings. I checked the odometer and I put about 400 miles on the car yesterday and today!
This morning I spoke in Flesherton, Ontario at the Split Rail Festival's Community Church Service. My topic was...29 Things I Learned in the 29 Years I Spent With the Toronto Blue Jays. Long title! The crowd gasped, thinking I'd spend 4 or 5 minutes on each point and we'd be there for 2 1/2 hours. I calmed their fears quickly.
Here are the 29 things I've learned:
10 - The 10 Commandments are as relevant today as they were when God called Moses up to Mount Sinai.
9 - The Beatitudes (the 9 "blesseds") are still as true todayas when Jesus taught them to the disciples on the mountainside (The Sermon on the Mount).
9 - The 9 Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5) are still worth cultivating today.
1 - The is only 1 way to peace with God and eternal life...a relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ.
10 plus 9 plus 9 plus 1 = 29
I'm still not able to post on PILGRIM PALS with any of the computers at home. It's so frustrating!
Be encouraged, dear ones! God is still on His throne and He cares for His own.
