Hi, I'm finally back after our General Council meeting. After I flew back to Toronto from Thunder Bay on Saturday, I immediately drove up to Wendy's parents' cottage on Lake Bernard, about 3 hours north of here. Wendy and Amado were waiting for me there and it was very nice to see them again after a week. It took a while for Amado to figure it all out, but I think he remembered me even if he was a little shy when I first arrived.

Our Emerging Spirit intiative was affirmed by the council, which means it will continue for three more years. It was quite a dramatic vote. We heard a lot of questions and concerns, most of which we have already been working on, but some new ones too. But in the end, the vote passed with what looked like at least 90% support. Most of all, I was humbled by the opportunity to participate in this major project for the church.

It's going to be a very busy fall, so now it's back to work. But it sure is nice to be home.
