It’s hard to go beneath the surface in today’s society. Everyone is trying to cram their thoughts into 140 character Tweets. Don’t get me wrong… I think Twitter is a marvelous tool, but we as humans, I believe, were meant to go deeper in life. In an earlier blog post, I pointed out how face-to-face communication is ideal.
I believe our relationship with others, and with our faith should be deep ones.
Jesus calls us out on to the waters. Places where we would not otherwise go. Out of our comfort zones.
When I think of being called into the depths in the Canadian context, I think of the canoe. Just last month, I had the opportunity to visit the Canadian Canoe Museum. What a treasure that was! Our own former prime minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was an avid outdoorsman and canoeist. Our faith, in many ways, can be rugged. We are called to the adventure of life by our wonderful Saviour… and He guides us every step of the way!
