I come back to BC and it never fails to remind me why I’d so much rather be here than in flat, boring Alberta. :D. Nothing beats the mountains, the trees, and the luscious growth of nature all around. It’s like entering paradise. Gorgeous.
So, I have a half hour before my uncle comes to pick me up here in Campbell River. I discovered soon after I arrived at the rectory that they have wireless internet set up at the parish here (awesome!), so I’ve been surfing around when I get the chance. I think I like the internet, most times. Speaking of which, 53 days until the release of the Half-Blood Prince.
Friday I bought a book. I don’t know if any of you have heard of the books “A Series of Unfortunate Events” by Lemony Snicket (I think that’s how it’s spelled), but they’re very creative and I’m liking them the more that I read them. They’re a children’s book series, if you’re not familiar with them. He has a very good way of increasing children’s vocabulary. I wish I had these books when I was young. They’re fun.
Anyways, not much else to comment about. My stay here has been really good; still discerning if I feel called here or not, but it’s leaning towards the ‘yes’ side, if they offer the position to me. Funny enough, my old high school teacher, Danny Brock, and his wife, Phil, were up here from Victoria this weekend; they had no idea I’d be up here (they were the ones who recommended to Fr. Bill to look into hiring a pastoral assistant). They also said that if I’m hired, I’ll probably be the first (salary) paid youth minister in the diocese. That’s a kinda fun thought.
Anyways, for all you die-hards out there, how was the Star Wars movie? I haven’t heard much from anyone. To answer your question Travis, I get back Saturday at noon, and I’ll be moving back to PG Monday (30th), so that’s about a day and a half…sorta. The Friars are having a big party Saturday night, too…I should check when that is.
So take care, all, and keep me informed on what’s going on for all youse.
Peace be with you,
