After a great week in the Drakensberg we're back in Johannesburg.

Yesterday our community had our yearly thanksgiving service. We hiked unto a hill and took an extended time to reflect on our year. As every member reflected on their thanks, they placed a rock on a pile and we created a small altar (will post a picture soon).

On another note, I read Eugene Peterson's latest book "Tell it slant" during the vacation … and it was profound. Here is a quote to whet your appetite.

Life in the company of Jesus is not a discussion group but an act of becoming – "Eugene Peterson in tell it slant"
