It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit” When he had said this, he breathed his last.
A weekend is normally a time of rest, the highlight of our week. Then again, it can be the longest two days in the world. For the disciples, no weekend could have been longer or more painful.

I was canoeing on a lake in NSW just recently. All things being equal, canoeing on flat water is not difficult. Rhythmical strokes left then right with the paddle make for seamless forward motion.

We just got back from a weekend away in the bush (no internet, and hence the late blog post). We had fun exploring a new corner of our country together and meeting some truly lovely people. And Matt and I are refreshed but also kind of exhausted.
