There’s been a change of plans for this Monday … Micah House needs our help, so Quarry is going to Hamilton!

Monday will find us at Micah House doing some yard work, grass mowing, porch cleaning & garage organizing ...

Unfortunately, I need to be at work this Monday evening, so Rebecca is going to be coordinating our project this week (thanks Rebecca!). You will receive an email from her this weekend with the Micah House address and more details.

We’ll meet at Micah House at 7:00, get ‘er done, and then hang out afterward ...

Don’t worry, we’re still going to do some brainstorming about serving, it’s just been moved to September. But first, let’s get out there and do it!

God is faithful. Even when we're stupid.

It was good to share our experiences of God's faithfulness last night.

God's faithfulness is sometimes easy to see, and other times not so much.
By looking back and remembering God's steadfast faithfulness and love for us we can often find faith for the future.

God is faithful.

This is the God of Moses and Abraham.
The God of Sarah. Rachel. James and Paul.
The God of Rebecca. Nathan. Dave. Lindsay. Gary. Lisa and Alicia.
The God of Michal. Josh and Timothy.

God has always been God. God will always be God.

a new campaign

Make Poverty History. We've all seen the ads, and those fashionable (?) plastic wristbands ... which some would suggest are just another accessory for the growing movement of 'slacktivism' (btw, I do like this word ... 'slacktivism' ... it really captures our passive attempts at 'making a difference'. I wear a bracelet, and then what? so what?)

So, it's time for a new campaign - Make Affluence History. Not poverty - affluence. Can we really tackle poverty without first addressing our own affluence and greed? How tightly are the two linked together?

So, check it out: Make Affluence History ... what do you think?

long weekend

We're having a Quarry holiday this week ...

So, enjoy your long weekends of cottaging, camping and relaxing (and if you're bored, scroll down for a video to watch. And then turn off your computer & go outside ... it's summer!).

See you August 13!
