Heads Up

IMG_6547Last month, the domain extension, “.church” was released.  You may want to grab this more descriptive extension soon.  If you need help, email me through the “Contact Us” page.  Generally speaking the .church extensions should allow people to find your church with greater ease.  If you have yet to develop a website for your church, I can also help with this.

Update on My Work

compass plusCurrently I have several irons in the fire in terms of every day work life.  I am employed half time with Dr. Bill Morrison through HERG, (Health Education Research Group) at UNB.  My primary involvement at the moment is videography.  I am working half time as well with the Marcel LeBrun foundation.  In addition, I am doing some website maintenance with a local company and designing and developing websites, eBooks and online magazines through my own company, iKE Mediology.

I am grateful to Bill for allowing me to develop some marketable skills following my exodus from vocational ministry.  This has been an incredible gift.  The other folks that I reference are also marketplace followers of Christ who live their relationship tangibly 24/7.

I was privileged last evening to participate in a memorial service at RCMP “J” Division HQ, for Cpl. Ron Francis.  I have been the Chaplain Coordinator for “J” Division since 2004.  This is truly a culture of honor.  Kudos to Assistant Commander Roger Brown and team for their stellar leadership.

As well, I continue to work in various ways with organicnazarene.net in church planting.  Things never move as quickly as we would like to see.  In these times, the temptation is to try to force a happening.  I have committed to follow His leadership.  At opportune times, doors of opportunity open and we move forward.  My belief is that He is the church builder.  My life, my gifts and skills only hold value in His hands.

I preach and minister wherever and whenever possible.  If there is anyway that I can be of assistance, contact me through the “Contact Us” page.

Blessings,

Karl & Elaine

Tin ManWhen Elaine and I left Moncton years ago, there was all the normal hoopla. There were those saying their good bye’s who wished us well and others who were likely happy to see us go. It was hard to say good bye to the former but we were also happy to say so long to the latter.

Steve Trueman, a.k.a. “Tin Man”, one of the finest men that I know, a gloriously imperfect follower of Christ, was conscripted to “say a few words” at our final gathering. Steve and I ran together for years, faced heartaches and victories side by side and collected an incredible array of mythical adventures that have since developed a life of their own.

He had a carefully prepared “roast“, professionally glazed and embellished that he served up that evening with incredible delight. Even as the main dish, I admired his offering and the enjoyment that it gave him.
