Hey All of you Sojourners,

Here is a tentative schedule for this Sunday's gathering and then forms of gathering and 'missional living' for SeptembeItalicr:

  • This Sunday we'll gather at the Schultz's at 10:30 am. Bring your "Tangible Kingdom" and we'll discuss Chapter 4 on the U-Haul.
  • September 5th we'll gather at the Pointen's and Scott, would you facilitate us in a discussion around Chapter 5 from the Tangible Kingdom. Doug would you have something for the kids, and Shari would you lead us in some worship and communion?
  • September 12th: Would it be possible to meet at your place, Scott and Pauline? Doug, if you would prepare to lead us in a discussion from James that would be great.
  • September 19th: We want to gather with Doug's Iranian friends who are close to the Kingdom and want to experience what church is like. Doug, will get us more details on this.
  • September 25th, yes I know a Saturday, is when we will be gathering with some other communities across the city who are part of the forming Mosaic for a Potluck, missional stories, worship and communion. More details coming on this.

Other gathering and missional opportunities are the Weds. night supper for the community of Bowness, the women's group on Thursday, the boys getting together for beer, wings, and accountability, and on Tuesday nights starting September 21st, if you or anyone else is interested I'll be starting The Discovering Your Dream course -this basically a discipling/mentoring course-both to be discipled and to give a framework of how to disciple others. Let me know if you or anyone you know would be served by this course.

Peace on you All,

Tim and Esther

Esther, the boys, and I are back from our quick odyssey down to Oregon where I officiated at my niece's wedding. The wedding was alot of fun and we really enjoyed have some real summer weather down south. . .like 90 +F.

We were wondering, Paul and Shari, if we could meet next Sunday at the farm. If the weather is warm enough we'd love to check out your swimming hole. Scott, I was wondering if you would lead us in a discussion of chapter 4 from the Tangible Kingdom?

A few of the simple missional communities that Esther and I have been connecting with and coaching would like to come together for a gathering called the Feast. The tentative plan for this is Sat. Sept. 11th though we may bump to Oct. due to the challenges of planning something like this over the summer months when all good Canadians migrate to the mountains or elsewhere to enjoy the great outdoors. More details on this to come!

We would like to try again at having church with Doug's Iranian friends who are very close to the Kingdom, especially the sister who is visiting from Iran. The plan is to do this on Sept.19th so mark that on your calendar.

Sometime in Sept. we are also working towards a block party with some of our neighbours here in Bowness. We haven't finalized the date yet for that.

Guys, it would be good to get back in to a regular time of meeting. What would work best for you all...Sat. evening?

That's all from the Schultz clan for now.
