Oh How He Loves

My small group and I are going through the book "Crazy Love" from Francis Chan.  It's a mind blowing book that spells the truth that not only does God love with an intense love like nothing we've ever known, but He invites us to become part of the greatest love story of all time!

A love story that loves people away from the lure of that which will destroy them.

A love story that transforms hearts, lives, communities and nations.

A love story that would cause millions to abandon the pursuit of the American dream in order to feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty and live for something greater than themselves.

God's love is incredible and indescribable.  It's deep and it's wide.  It's personal and yet all-encompasing.  It's something that when it takes residence in your soul, leaves you so changed that life never looks the same again.

That's love.  And that's what God offers us.  Oh how He loves...

Learning To Ice Fish

Living in the north we do strange things like cut holes in ice and stand there for hours hoping to catch fish.

Last weekend our whole family did the annual fishing derby in Cochrane and this was my nephews first time fishing.  At two years old he did rather well, wouldn't you say?
