Going Home

We leave Orcas to go home today. This stay has been very slow, lots of solitude...my sister does not have a television. It has been great to see Alex play for 10 days without a T.V. or video games! He and Nate have read books and played outside until they were covered in dirt, so fun to watch. They especially like chasing rabbits. There are so many rabbits here. They run all over the property.
We have had a very nice time here. My brother-in-law has been a most gracious host--we have named him our "Camp Director"

I usually dream a lot and remember my dreams. It's a language I have learned some about and it is definitely a way that I hear from God as well as a way of working out my life...

I haven't remembered many of my dreams the past 10 days...maybe because life has slowed to a halt there is not a lot to work out while on vacation...

Last night I had a very vivid dream. I was with Gordon Cosby from the Church of the Savior. He was giving me advice. I can't remember what he was saying but I knew I needed to pay attention. I knew he had a lot of wisdom that I needed to hear. My dream changed and I was frustrated for not asking him certain questions. I was trying to get him on the phone but was not having any luck. I remember thinking, I should write down all my questions on a sheet of paper so if I do get him on the phone I won't forget what I want to ask...end of dream

This has obvious implications to me on the surface. I visited Church of the Savior two years ago and have read several books about COS. We are in the process of trying to develop ways to incubate several mission groups. We understand that the COS structure does not translate to our context so we have been trying to figure out what does transfer. Lots of discussion, lots of reading, lots of praying for the correct structures to enable us to see our faith community serving the places of pain and need in our world...I think there is more for me, I will have to think about it...

I'd love to hear more about what you're learning in terms of translating COTS structure here. I'm trying to understand this as well.
