Friday Five – Holy/Thin Places

Over at RevGalBlogPals it’s Friday Five time! This time the question is about holy or thin places. Tatamagouche Centre, on the north shore of Nova Scotia. Conrad’s Beach, on the eastern shore of Nova Scotia. Seton Spirituality Centre, on the south shore of Nova Scotia. The first green shoots in the garden, so hopeful! Through…

Schrödinger’s Camera Card

A colleague who expressed appreciation for my nature photography asked me if I ever did family photos. She and her husband, their adult children, one partner, along with two dogs, were all going to be in the same place, at the same time and she wanted a family photo. I told her no, that I…

Advent Photo A Day: Mend

Not everything that is broken can be mended. These two stars words that we will be giving out on Christmas Eve can’t be fixed. You’d think that a minister could at least spell gospel correctly! But no, not content with misspelling it once, I did it twice! This mistake is evident, but that is not…
