The Wider View This Week

New Wineskins Conference

As a family we have taken many road trips; often back and forth from Nova Scotia to visit our families, and once across the continent and back. On all of those trips there have been remarkable vistas, sudden wildlife sightings, and amusing signs and billboards. All these visual wonders have been taken in by most, but not all, in the car. Frequently as the driver I have missed some of these things because, legitimately, I needed to be focused on the road in front of me. But sometimes we could pull over and take a moment to consider the wider view.
