Conference and Vacation

Category: Family :: Permalink

After two weeks of travelling, Moriah and I are home again!

Our trip began with the Christ Church Ministerial Conference in Moscow, Idaho, where Doug Wilson, Peter Leithart, and Rich Lusk addressed various subjects related to justification. Dale Courtney’s notes of the lectures are available online here and Rich Lusk has posted the full text of his lectures here. Though there wasn’t that much that was new to me, on the whole the conference was quite good, and it was great to be able to visit with family and friends.

After the conference, our vacation began. We travelled to Abbotsford, BC, to visit my grandmother and also saw several friends, including one couple, Peter and Dana Klootwyk, whom I hadn’t seen for about ten years. On Sunday, I preached at Christ Covenant Church (CREC) in Langley, BC, and then returned to my grandmother’s house for a meal with my uncle’s family.

We drove down to Bellingham, Washington, on Monday evening to have supper with Chip and Janet Lind. After supper, Janet took care of Aletheia while Chip took Moriah and me on a tour of Bellingham. We walked along the harbour, drove around downtown, and even wandered the halls of Logos Bible Software, where Chip works. Moriah and I both fell in love with Bellingham that night, I think.

We left Abbotsford on Wednesday and spent that night at the Kicking Horse Farm Bed and Breakfast in Clearwater, BC, where we enjoyed having our own beautiful cabin. We returned home Thursday night.
