This week I spent 3 days with 2 friends at 1 conference on emerging church. Met Andrew again and enjoyed Brian McLaren. There are so many things at stake if you want to define church for the time to come! Like the quote by Len Sweet: the church "mistakes the dawn for a setting sun". I did this, too, I admit. Sweets book "Carpe Mańana" helped me to try to see the dawn instead of dusk. Shame, since I work with a ministry called "DAWN"...posted by Reinhold | 23:15

So much time gone again. The big thing was last weekend, my wife's 50th birthday. 35 friends and neighbours for a Brunch on Saturday, 15 for coffee, and more than 40 people at a big Party in the evening. Total family business changing the house into a party-like place, setting up meditation and chill-out rooms, providing food and drinks in large amounts and teaching people the first steps in Salsa at night. Much work but Grrrreat fun. I have such a great wife.

What is this: ca. 1 mm long, whitish, moves, and if you find it in your kitchen you have to take ALL the food out, search it, clean it, and desinfect the whole place? Some kind of maggot found a way into our beautiful kitchen. And my wife spent almost a whole day (see above). Ouf. Some kind of devolution product.

Just found out that the Hotel where Michael my son will spend a 6 months internship belongs to an old friend of ours. Wow!! God is great and Switzerland is small...posted by Reinhold | 15:48
Rain. Quiet sunday. Autumn came in time - Oct 1 it started getting rainy and cold. I love fall - it is like being more alive than in summer. Change and colours and smells - wonderful. My pool in the garden is ready, quite proud of it (it takes so little....) Lots of good time with the family. My son Mike found a wonderful place for his internship, his dream hotel in Lenk. Will start tomorrow.

Today, a BIG day. The miracle happened and we were able to collect over Sfr. 40.000 for the newspaper to start - in two days. I did the first step towards a dissertation. And I worked hard on my garden pool and brook. After supper, rewarded myself with an excellent cigar (the best and only one I have). Re-discovered Dashiell Hammet detective stories.
