Changes, every day we encounter a change in our lives. It is no different with a church. the church of PL is headquartered in Japan as you all know. In Japan the fiscal year is from April 1 – till March 31st of the following year. Thus when changes occur, they are announced at the end of the year with the changes taking place immediately (almost). Ministers are transferred to new communities, and this includes the churches in North American, South America etc.
Change will occur in our church, Rev. Tiago has been transferred to the church in Los Angeles. Rev. Atsushi Tsuji a young minister from Japan will be coming to Canada. What wonderful adventures for these two young men. Rev. Tiago and his young family are not long in Canada having come here from Brazil. He has learned to live in the extreme cold of a Canadian winter, and now will head for the dry heat of Los Angeles, California.
Rev. Tsuji will not only experience a change from his Native Japan, but he will be coming to his first assignment here in Canada, And no, dear readers, he does not speak English, never mind French. Fortunately he will arrive during the spring season, and will grow into his new home with the delights of a Canadian spring with the multitude of early spring flowers, tulips, crocus and the like.. In Canada, especially here in Ottawa, we have a bond with Holland, that is expressed with a magnificent show of Tulips in parks and in private gardens.
Picture below were taken during the Ottawa tulip festival, where the tulips are planted to offer up the photographer, tourists and visitors a chance to admire and enjoy their beauty. smiles, and of course to showcase our beautiful city.
So it is, we wish these two young men much success and adventure on this new journey in life that they are embarking on..Changes although at times a challenge, with packing, paperwork, and organizing in such a short period of time, we work through it, step by step, and when tackled with enthusiasm and sincerity (makoto) the rewards are a million fold.
For those of us who are not leaving, there will be a gap, a new personality will enter the community, and we will all have to adjust. Again, it is how we will meet this new opportunity that will determine our temporary disruption to “daily living” God/Universe is always going to ensure that we grow in spiritchanges are what make us better people.
