June Update

July 2, 2014

June was busy but good. Here’s a breakdown of what transpired in our little world.

Professionally:

– Worked on the June issue of Forcing Change, which was completed at the end of the month. This edition examines present-day economic realities and considers the economic system most inline with a Biblical worldview.

– Spoke at the Learn To Discern Conference in Abbotsford, BC. This was an exhausting but wonderful time in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia, interacting with attendees, other speakers, and being blessed with new research contacts and friendships.

– Spoke to a couple of small fellowships in the Interlake region of Manitoba; one in the community of St. Laurent, the other in the town of Gimli.

– Completed a quarterly editorial job for Hope For The World, the research/information ministry of Gary Kah.

– Radio shows: Did a fun yet serious six-part interview with Michael Boehm for his youth apologetics broadcast.

Personal:

– Spring is always a time for mushrooms! So as the month progressed, and as the tasty wild morsels popped-up, they soon found their way to my plate… yummy!

– Spent some time in the woods. We have access to some heavily wooded property with a river and valley cutting it in two. It’s a great place for campfires, hiking, and just “getting away” for a while. So we did.

– Our son, Scott, had a heavy month of working for a national railway company. But it has been been a good experience, and it has allowed him to see some new country in Northern Ontario.

– Austin, our daughter, kept up with boxing lessons. She’s has a mean left-hook…

– And it rained, and rained, and rained. A lot of rain came down throughout the month of June, but it was during the last weekend of the month when things went from bad to out-of-control. Much of the province was hit with multiple inches – up to 6 and more in places – along with shrieking winds. Fields are underwater, ditches are overflowing, and bridges are washed out.

– In looking back over June, the realization is this: Between speaking engagements and writing assignments, there really wasn’t a lot of time for personal adventures. Hmmm… I’ll have to make it up in July!

Books Read:

– Nick Rosen, Off the Grid: Inside the Movement for More Space, Less Government, and True Independence in America (Penguin, 2010).

– Frank Dikotter, Mao’s Great Famine: The History of China’s Most Devastating Catastrophe, 1958-1962 (Walker & Company, 2010).

– Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay (Scholastic, 2010).
