Greetings from Houston, B.C. I am excited to share news with you about Good Seed Sunday. I have been praying for national resources for churches for years and it is finally here!
I am the mother of three beautiful, rambunctious children who bless me every day and the wife of a wonderful man. I work for a great organization called A Rocha Canada - Christians in Conservation (www.arocha.org/canada). I am a leader at our churches' coffee break ministry and love engaging with the women there and encouraging and inspiring them to grow, learn and be the person God created them to be. I continually fight the battle against depression and over the past five years have found that I am winning more often than not. I care deeply about the people and places around me and do whatever I can to make whatever God places before me an act of worship to my creator. I live in a small town in Northern B.C. which is wonderful and frustrating all at the same time. I have just discovered gardening and am enjoying growing my own food (although this year was terrible for growing). When I am not working, caring for my family or visiting someone I like to spend quiet time making things out of secondary resources (aka garbage).

I have to admit I like free things. But I also agree that it is a bit silly the "stuff" that gets sent/given away in the name of "promotion". I do have to say that I love the paper pens that...posted on: Puzzling about Creation Care—Part 2—A Rant
Under Church Admin and finance? I would never think to look in there for it. It would be great if that could be a direct link from the front page where the list of topics is...that's my two cents...posted on: Your Feedback = Chance to Win

I've been thinking about the discipleship question a lot over the past couple years and am still trying to figure out what it means. I find myself seperating #1 (how to get to heaven or salvation...posted on: Is Conversion to Jesus Enough?
We (Houston CRC in northern B.C.) started a community garden three years ago. Actually it was more like we dug up some of the grass on the church property, hauled in some dirt and started planting...
Since I have been working in this area for the past 20 years (ack has it been that long) I wholeheartedly agree. I do not think that it is a salvation issue (you can still make it to eternal life...
