I have spent the first half of my career
as a pastor of the church, and the second half as a teacher in the university and the church. I experience much satisfaction working in both worlds. As I engage in ongoing research to support my third activity which is writing, I am constantly finding many interesting items on the net and from friends which I edit and share on my Colleagues List. That way, you too might enjoy information from the worlds of religion and culture. As of September 2016, this profile has received almost 1,800 hits.
Thanks for your interest!
Vol. VI. No. 33 ***** Wayne A. Holst, Editor ***** Colleagues List Blog: http://colleagueslist.blogspot.com/ ***** Dear Friends: Marlene and I returned from four weeks in the UK, Ireland and France at mid-week, and I am busy sorting through many communications that have arrived on my computer during a month of "vacation" from the digital world of Colleagues List. I will return with a new and complete issue next weekend. In the meantime, here are two items I want to share with you now. Both affect me very personally. Delton Glebe helped my as a young man to consider a venture into "Christian higher education" (as we called it back in the early 1960's) - 50 years ago. He passed away two weeks ago in Kitchener, Ont. My least communication with Delton took place just before our vacation and I have always appreciated his strong ministry support in my life. He was 93. --- The forest fire that enveloped Slave Lake, Alberta last week caused our youngest daughter Sarah, her husband Ronnie and baby Mya, to evacuate their home. Fortunately, their residence was spared, as was the regional hospital where Sarah is a nurse. They returned home this week, realizing that a third of the buildings in their town had been destroyed by fire. The citizens of Slave Lake are very appreciative of the support they are receiving from many people like those representing the Salvation Army. They anticipate trying to rebuild what they lost. Until next week, Wayne ***** COLLEAGUE DELTON GLEBE HAS DIED K-W Record Obituary, May 16th, 2011 http://tinyurl.com/3u2c2ra ___ SALVATION ARMY SUPPORTS PEOPLE OF SLAVE LAKE Christianweek.org May 24th, 2011 http://www.christianweek.org/stories.php?id=1577 (end)
