Folded napkin

by Linda Wegner on 06/02/21

In the Christian tradition, we’ve just celebrated the Easter season but here’s a detail I’ve never heard addressed: Following His resurrection, why was the napkin that covered the face of Jesus in the tomb, folded? Read more...

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.
