Rev. Moon’s message for January 23, 2022

Dear friends:

This week, I finally bought two snow shovels and placed them in our cars. I had left all my gardening tools and snow shovels when I moved to GTA in 2021. Since I was moving into an apartment in the city, I somehow thought there was no need for a snow shovel. I quickly realized that I was completely wrong, but I resisted buying a snow shovel. That was until I saw how much snow we could get in the city this week. That was until I saw several cars getting stuck on the road this week. It took a while to admit I was wrong. More precisely, it took a long time for me to do something with the acknowledgment.

Can I Shovel Off the Snow?” (1871) by Anglo-American painter John George Brown (1831–1913); from a private collection; taken from the Wikimedia Commons.

During this week, I have been thinking about these questions; “How long does it take for me to acknowledge my wrongs and mistakes?”; “When do we do something about the mistakes we made?” 

At least I bought a snow shovel before getting stuck on the road. I guess it is never too late to acknowledge our mistakes and make amends. 

I hope everyone is staying unstuck! I pray that we don’t have to use a snow shovel too often.

Rev. Chuck Moon
