Grandparents and Home
My mom's dad's funeral was earlier today. I met him a couple of times. Bob Giles was born in 1923, joined the Canadian Navy at 18 and served on the Prince Robert.
The Church needs more spiritual parents and grandparents, people who adopt - no matter what the personal cost - others who deserve inviting up and down into all that the Church has, up into love and down into compassion (gut level love).
The world has too many orphans. There is too much abandonment. Too much aborting of life before it takes root. Too much rejection. The Church needs to live in the opposite spirit and start birthing, adopting, and embracing people.
We are still in Canmore, Alberta waiting on God for open doors for a home and guidance on work. We are breathing faith and asking Him for the land.
