So this thing still exists. I thought maybe it would have dissapeared from neglect. It seems worth it to at least post some random thoughts about the summer so far. Someday I hope to write some sort of book about Jakob's Well but I know the tendency will be for me to fill it with the less then amazing details of my life rather then to go to level as to how God makes amazing things happen through and in these experiences. My task for tonight is to make a partial list of the things I want to write about, those things where I have felt the sweetness, the weirdness, the difficulty, the sabbath rest of God. Here are a few of them:

Russia- where I saw more Ikons in ten days then in my entire life. Including the very famous ones in the Tretyakov. This was a very spiritually charged time for me. (an awful lot is for me in life)

Randy the street preacher/ fransican/ health and wealth believer and all that entails.

Related to that Jim and Tommy and all the friends of Jesus living and dying on the streets of Northampton

Well that's alot right there.

Today was a good day. Scott played Keyboards at PVAG and then we went to the blueberry festival. The theme of the day both at PVAG and in general seemed to be the glory of creation. At the blueberry festival there was a woman who rehabilitates Raptors who gave an excellent presentation. People were so focused on what she was saying that it was almost like prayer. I believe it gave honor to the creator of those birds that a bunch of us sat in the blueberry fields on benches made of boards and buckets and made their acquaintance each with a distinct personality, or so it seemed. She took out a Golden Eagle and there was silence.

Then Moses went up to God, and the LORD called to him from the mountain and said, "This is what you are to say to the house of Jacob and what you are to tell the people of Israel: 4 'You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles' wings and brought you to myself. 5 Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, 6 you [a] will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' (Exodus 19)

An invitation to the people Israel extended to the Gentiles in a blueberry field on a green mountain through the new and everlasting covenant in his blood.
