Word for the Coming Week: BEAUTY

We will use this word to reflect on as we walk, run or roll through our week.

Some words may inspire you with exciting new insights while others may disturb your thinking or challenge your beliefs. Sometimes you will love or take comfort in what you are hearing, while other times you may feel discomfort or resistance. Pay attention to all as this is part of your journey.

Are We There Yet?

This week's journey picks up where we left off at Port Nelson/York Factory at the mouth of the Hudson Bay.  Since there are no roads around we are HIKING as the crow flies from here to Armstrong, On.  This is a total of 775 km, according to this site.  We pass near a number of northern first nations communities such as Shamattawa (population 1019),  Muskrat Dam (population 375) and Pickle Lake, the most northerly community in the province of ON that has year-round access by road (imagine that for a minute).

Now that we are back on the road we can travel in style (after a shower and good nights rest).


From Armstrong we wind around past Windogo Bay and Whitesand Provincial Parks on route 11 (TCH) to arrive at our destination for the week, Moonbeam ON.

  1. Canada has the majority of the world’s water so I wondered which one of the Great Lakes was the largest. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Great Bear Lake in the Canadian boreal Forest was Canada’s largest lake. Thanks for another great question that helped me learn a little more about my country.

    It looks like we left Manitoba just in time, it was hit by a Major tornado. The pictures on TV looked very scary .

    Sure hope everyone is well and staying safe. If you need masks please let me know! Pam (pam.v.harrison@gmail.com )

  2. Back home from a lovely early morning walk in the cool of the day. Enjoyed worshipping with Vision’s after a summer break. Sitting in front of my iPad with a glass of ice-water I could visualize John playing his whistle, Bill singing and swaying to the music, Daphna and John by the piano singing together in perfect harmony, all of this to bring joy to our time of worship. Great to hear Shawn’s voice and summer stories, I could picture her holding that new grand baby.

    Thanks to those we could not see for your support to make worship flow as if we were all together, six ft apart wearing masks and giving thank for our many blessings. Thank you! Pam

  3. My goodness this was a hot week, walking after 8:00 am would cause one to rest ! As we walked across our great country we can offer thanks for the beauty of our nation.

    Are we paying attention to nature? Bats are an indicator of safe air – have you seen any? I sure hope so. Frogs are an indicator of safe water, have you seen or heard them. I enjoy the lack of insects however that may indicates lack of water and that it not good. Have you noticed the leaves dropping off the trees, that indicates drought – not good. And so on!

    Please ‘live with respect in creation’ , it is what we say we will do . As we walk pay attention to what nature is telling us, be prepared to adjust.
