The speaker for the event was Rev Bylsma from Woodstock, and he spoke on the topic "Discovering God's Will" He was very good, as expected. He had 3 sessions, and to do a quick summary would not do them justice. But here goes anyways.
Session #1: Discovering God's will is a journey, a process. And as often as we think it is, it's not about us, but His glory. We must have a desire for Him and His Word, to intimitally know Him. The more we know Him, the more we will know His will for us.
Session #2: Can anything stop or foil God's Will? No. Satan tries to make us think we messed up and missed His will for us. But we know that our intercessor, Jesus Christ, never stops praying for us when we fall or make a mistake. ie Peter's denial and redemption. He uses our weakness to show His strength. We must serve God in the small things, and He will use us in the great things. ie David and watching the sheep.
Session #3: We are to have a living relationship with God. We must delight in doing His will. His law is to be written on our hearts. We must be willing to suffer for Christ, and when He rebukes us, we should not become discouraged. We can find help and direction from older believers. ie Rehoboam
Another highlight was Talent Night. As always, it was interesting and entertaining. As is becoming custom, the Canadians sang a song, this time "Forgive us, We're Canadian" by the Arrogant Worms. I was also in a Cinderella skit with the guys from Wyoming. Thanks to Tim, Jon, Nathan and Wes for letting me be in your skit. It was fun! Amanda VDH has posted it on YouTube, so go check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6M1KhZPCi94 (I'm the second from the left)
I have a few other tales I could tell, but I'll leave them for another post. I'll also try to get my hands on some pics and put them up. So, until then,
Keep your stick on the ice.

But alas, now I have one, so I might as well use it. I plan on using it mostly for posting pictures, cause I enjoy looking at other people's pictures. So, we'll see where this goes. Until then...
Good bye and good night!
ps. My sister's 21st birthday is in 23 days. Better get going on my Christmas shopping.
