A year or so ago I picked up a book at a used book store, The Book of Legends Sefer Ha-Aggadah: Legends from the Mishnah and Talmud It's an early 20th C compilation and translation of a huge variety of commentary on the Hebrew Scriptures. Commentary is probably a little too weak, they are creative responses and sometimes expansions of the Scriptures, collecting the wisdom of ages of storytelling. Now there's an on-line group starting a two-year journey through the stories. I can't promise I will check in every day, but I will look from time to time and I've joined the Facebook group to keep up to date. Check them out Sefer Ha-Bloggadah.

Here's a link to Joye Platford's Sermon for the Pinawa Birthday Weekend Community Service. It was a special treat and pleasure to have Joye preach as we celebrated the many good people who have emerged from Pinawa to engage the wide world. Also, many many thanks to the folks who pitched in to transform a rather dishevelled beer tent into a place of worship in about thirty minutes that Sunday morning! We should have had a "before and after" photo.
