Blessed

It is amazing how quickly time can pass....we have been pretty busy around here but that is no excuse to be neglectful so I apologize for the lag in new posts.

This morning at staff meeting, Lando shared from Philippians and I wanted to share it with you as well.  Although he read from the Message, I have taken the text from the NLT. 

12 Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear.  13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him. (Phil 2:12-13 New Living Translation)

We discussed the joy of "being able to carry the light, bringing a message of hope into a polluted world."  

She was stunned!
This past month we have been we have had the privilege to do just that. We have done a couple of off site book tables, a librarian's night and were able to take a 'store' to History Maker Youth Conference in Chilliwack.

What a great time surrounded by so many young people and of course fun Christ loving youth pastors. With the help of Kings Music, we were able to bless this beautiful young lady with a new Godin guitar.
Youth Pastors are such good sports!!

 
Then we got a call....how would we like to be the scene of movie?? What a blessing! We were able to gift a small movie production company, EVE Entertainment Inc.,  by allowing them to 'borrow' our coffeehouse for their project (we will keep you informed about it).

Here is a shot of the crew!

And of course there are the numerous interactions we are able to have with our regular customers. Some days I wish I could share  the stories that we are blessed to play a small part in here at House of James...there are many moments of pain, triumph and opportunity to pray with people...it is safe here so the people come and we would not have it any other way.

Yes, we are a retail store but we are so much more, we have a unique opportunity here to 'carry the light' and I just wanted to let you know that we are blessed by it!!
