Happy Summering!

Summer in Manitoba is too short to spend at a laptop. During the long winter months sign of NDD, nature deficit disorder, appear in the lives of all but the hardiest among us. But now, days are long, temperatures mild, and the outdoors is teeming with life. It is time for dirt under our fingernails, mud between our toes, For outdoor swimming and drying off in warm summer breezes.

This is my main reason for taking a break from blogging until the fall. The other is that I’ll be drafting a booklet on our varied communion practice and its implications for our practical theology, especially as it impacts the unbaptized in our church families. There’s only limited space in my brain for putting sentences onto paper.

When I return to this blog after the delights of summer, I hope to have some great tales and insights to share from my months of ‘summering’ and drafting. Until then, may the Lord bless and keep you, make his face to shine on you and give you peace.




About Elsie Hannah Ruth Rempel

As a young senior whose life could easily have ended in a nasty car crash in 2012 I live with an extra dose of gratitude to God, humanity, and the wonders of our human bodies. I am a passionate advocate for ministry WITH children and seniors in the life and ministry of the church. I started working in Faith Formation with Mennonite Church Canada in 2002. Thinking and writing about faith helps me see God at work in all kinds of surprising places. I'd like to be remembered as one who encourages others to live into God's good dream for our world. My book, Please Pass the Faith: The Spiritual Art of Grandparenting, is one big way I'm trying to share that encouragement with my peers. This blog is another way I'd like to engage people who care about growing in faith across the generations.
