Dear Son, telling you last night how impressed i was from your honest and professional answers on the Youth Ministry survey was a great moment.

The biggest revelation was when you described “Youth Group” feeling more like “Bible Study” than a youth group.

Here’s to hoping your honest answers are well received.

The stereotypical assumption is that they won’t.

Here’s to us being wrong.

We must find our own peace and contentment

He told his friend he thought about the previous night’s conversation and wanted to say his goodbyes now, at dinner.

His friend had said how he has suffered enough in his life and that death would be a welcomed relief. He wasn’t contemplating suicide, but simply stating that if he died, his pain would be gone.

Fear is a bloody liar. So the conversation last night included a goodbye, just to bring peace to the joyful person.

Pretty sure it caught the tired person off guard.

Authenticity is strength. And peace.

No secrets.

But still use our best judgement.

Dear Son, last night’s talk may be forgotten years from now, however, it is the hottest topic we’ve talked about in a while.


The metaphor for where we are and the decisions before us.

The fact that we only have 36 hours together in a 13-day window will challenge our creativity.

Return from Winnipeg one day, pause at home one day, leave again in a few hours for Halifax.

Real life in real time.

Insight: Excuses be damned.

We, each of us, are a cathedral, no?


If we are really, brutally honest with ourselves, there can be no exceptions to being a good and decent person.

The longer and more sincerely we do this, the higher our batting average.

We will fail, but less and less often.

Until one day, never.
