Giving and possessing

by Linda Wegner on 03/02/21

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been reading the Old Testament account of the journeys of God’s children as they made their way from captivity in Egypt, across the years of their trek through the Red Sea, enemy territory and seemingly endless desert.

A Message from Linda Wegner
Situated on the west coast of British Columbia, Powell River is a geographically isolated community with access to Vancouver Island or the Lower Mainland, including Vancouver, only by plane or boat. Yes, our travel options are expensive and somewhat restrictive, but it’s because of that isolation that we have avoided the hectic pace of city life.

Our scenery is spectacular and the opportunities for outdoors activities, abundant. Take a look and avoid being jealous, if you can. These views are from my office and kitchen windows.

Thank you to you all for your love and support.
