So this weekend, we once again saw that God doesn’t live only in La Crete. He is here too. 😃
Not that there was ever any real doubt. Yesterday, we went to a peaceful protest at the Alberta Legislature regarding Bill 10. There were approximately 2,300 people there. They had a total of 9 speakers, some of which were pastors. Most of them spoke of the faith we have and how we should be able to raise our kids with our faith values, many quoted scripture passages such as:
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
One speaker even spoke a beautifully worded prayer, in Jesus’ name. We felt very blessed to attend such a Godly event in the heart of the city.
No surprise, the media did not do the event any justice. There was a small pro-bill 10 rally before this main one but only had about 150 people there. I will include two links for you to read. The Edmonton Journal did a much better job of actually saying what happened:
Today, our landlords had invited us over for the afternoon. Sadly, I didn’t realize they meant for lunch and had just eaten a great lunch with Lenora’s Uncle Ken and Auntie Susie. Thankfully, lunch took a little while yet and we had digested enough to try each of the roughly 12 dishes of their very traditional, Chinese cooking. I thought I probably shouldn’t take pictures of their food, but then they gave us some leftovers so I could get this picture of pork and cabbage stuffed dumplings at home:
Hilariously, they served good old roasted zoat for dessert. I guess it’s a Chinese tradition as well. Instead of salted, theirs was coconut flavoured, we might have to alert “Spitz” to that hidden little gem.
