Every now and then we discover a gem. Unpublished, un-hyped but mature these gems once discovered prove to be so enriching. Lollie and I wanted to see a movie the other day and chose Whale Rider, a movie from New Zealand. I had no expectations and not a clue what it would be about. It was a gem. I shared with Lollie my fear that it won’t be shown in the States (it will be Terminated by the big 3!)

Well, I was wrong – it shows in the States. If you’re there go and check it out.

We met with our fourteen friends for the first time last Sunday. Next week we will study the nature of church and the Kingdom of God. We are excited!!

++God, help us not to mess this up++
