Brilliant January Day

I know this is winter in the far north and everyone thinks we are freezing inside igloos here. But the weather has been calm and nice for nearly 2 weeks. Yesterday was spectactular! Absolutely BRILLIANT. No wind, only sunshine. Blue sky turning burnt orange sunset teasing the distant charcoal hills. Gosh, I’m a poet and I’m sure of it! You had to be there. My good friends Derek Chapman and Brian Standerfer were.



Brian is seriously considering bringing his family from Austin, Texas to our little town in Stromness, Orkney. And it seemed like God was putting on a show everywhere we went. I made a photo album called Brilliant January. And Derek, that picture of the rib roast you requested is there. Isn’t that the best meat in the world? Thanks for coming. Stay longer next time!!!

    Andrew, if you keep showing us how beautiful the Islands are, we’ll all want to uproot and move there. Then it won’t be as special. The place looks majestic.

    Nice pics!
    Just read your comment on the Leadership site regarding Barna’s new book. It’s exciting and interesting to forecast what forms the church might take over the next 20 years.
