Delving back into the archives... [28 Apr 2006|01:38am]

So tonight has been a slow night. The parents have gone down the coast for the weekend, and I'm here just fixing up my resume for an interview tomorrow.

But seeing as how it's as slow as it is, I started going through some old posts on thesouth, and lo & behold I find the post that contained THAT comment - the comment which started a happy marriage here.

Awww... did either of them imagine what would have come from that initial out-of-the-blue introduction? :)

House Group [14 Nov 2005|12:37pm]

Our house group this week is going to be a games night!
Magdaleine might be able to bring the Canadian version of Cranium, or we could just attempt to play the US version. Cortney should have an advantage then!

Something I think would be cool to do next spring/summer [06 Nov 2005|03:59pm]

Cortney was talking about how frustrating it was being bored and not having things to do so I thought that some of the homeless people and the poor in our city probably feel the same way. I would like to get a video projector, like we use at church, a white sheet or something for a screen, and a portable generator so we can go and have regular movie showings in some of the poor areas where people wouldn't have money for going out to a movie and such. I suppose we'd just pick a park or somewhere downtown where those folks go to normally (Central Park or that one by Higgens and Main?). I thought we could start by doing a double feature one night a week, like Fridays and go from there. Just put out a few flyers and I'm sure word of mouth will spread as people realize they can just bring lawn chairs and blankets to watch if they are in the mood.

Maybe at the end of the night we'd say something like:

"We're putting this on every week here because we wanted to give people who can't afford to go to a movie something fun to do. We know life is really hard sometimes and hopefully you enjoyed relaxing here tonight at least. We wish we could do more to help some of the people that have had it tough, and while we can't really fix anything, we'd be honored to pray to our God for you because we believe that the bigger the problem the more He likes to help. Don't worry, you don't have to believe in God or anything for it to work, just come over later and ask one of us to pray for you. If it doesn't work, nothing lost. If it does work though, well... then your really in trouble because God wants all of you, and you'll know He's real so you won't be able to hide from Him anymore."

Where things would go from here I don't really know. Maybe if it's popular we could get other churches to help with volunteers to do free movies every night in the core area. Maybe it will be a good base for us white suburbanites to learn to interact with the poor and the homeless. Anyhow, that's my idea for something we can really do to make life better for the homeless and poor. Or at least give some of the poor refugee kids a safe place to go and hang out so they don't get picked on by gangs.

Ok... so we have all winter to start planning this. Thoughts in process. We'll see where the brainstorming takes us.

Good times [03 Nov 2005|05:13pm]

Hey all,
we have a big weekend in store this week!
Friday the usual Urban Connection in the Village developing relationship with the squeegy-kids.
This Saturday night we are partying with Winnipeg Centre to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. Guaranteed to be a great night with the return of David Ruis and others. 7pm at the Centre.
Then Sunday morning we have special guests Vaden & Chrystal Erl from Absolute Ministries coming to give us the preach, they will be staying with us for Monday and Tuesday nights at 7pm for more outrageous God times.
This weekend will be huge so if you can't make it out for everything make sure you make it out for most of it!

For those who would like to be apart of Urban Connection in some ways or another or even has a idea that they would like to try out. Email me at urbanconnection@villagevineyard.ca instead of my javagurl33 account.



Cortney trying to cause problems again [28 Oct 2005|11:41am]

I was just looking at the website. Good work Danny, but I have a question. Under "We Believe"...do you think its necessary to have all that. Its a lot of Christian talk if you ask me. Its the associations statement of faith right?

Here is the thing. It does infact tell what we believe, but its difficult to understand and extremely long. I didnt even want to read it all, and I go to the church! Isnt it possible to say what we believe in a clearer way, and then if you wanted that whole statement to be avaliable you could link them to the Association page, or better yet, tell them to contact us and wed love to share with them what we are about and believe.

Maybe I am just being weird, but one thing that gets on my nerves the most about church is things that dont make sense to the outside world or are just a bunch of words. And from my experence other people dont like that either.

And then our vision... what does "passionatly spiritual" mean?? This spiritual word is way overused, and the problem is that it is used by every religion and means so many different things eh?

Just my 2 cents again. Welcome to leave it :)
