The only sport in which I have ever won a trophy is in curling. In grade ten I curled in an extra-curricular school league with three guys who were all excellent curlers. I played lead and we walked away with the championship at the end of the year. So I always feel good about stepping back out onto the curling ice. It is one sport where I kind of know what I am doing.
Last Sunday our church had a curling match at the Granite Curling Club with ten teams participating. I was paired up with three guys again and we managed to win our game by just one point. I made some pretty good shots! In a spirit of cooperation and sportsmanship both teams posed for a photo together at the end of our game. It was fun to be out on the curling ice again and it brought back good memories of my highschool curling days.

I couldn’t have done it without them. About a year ago I had the idea of building a Little Free Library for our church. If you don’t know about the Little Free Library movement I explained it in a previous post.
Of course just having the idea to build a library isn’t enough. It would never have happened without the help of Brock Klassen who designed the library, carpenter Delmer Epp who built the library in his shop with Brock, and Ike Derksen a professional artist who did all the beautiful lettering on the library. On Sunday I took a photo with these three great guys beside our finished little free library.
The library has been open since April. I check and restock it every week and know that many, many books have been taken and many new books donated. I hear stories all the time about people who have been spotted using the library. Our church reaches out to the community around our building in a myriad of ways. Our Little Free Library compliments and augments that outreach. I just love the three great guys who helped me make my dream of a Little Free Library a reality.
