I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Happy Sabbath-- Tweeting the Lesson Study

Wow, praise the Lord, just tweeted out the Week's lesson study at http://twitter.com/comoxadventist for anyone who might be interested in that kind of thing.  I met a new friend from Indiana.  She and her husband carried on the study off-line after a while with a discussion about how jealousy is based on pride.  I may well do this again another Friday night.  My husband is immersed in his own preparations for tomorrow's lesson at Church (which means he is listening to a variety of Sabbath School programs on the internet).

What an interesting week this has been!  My friend K. included me in on a Facebook messaging with another friend in Norway (we use Google Translate) to compare notes daily on the weather.  It turns out that the Norwegian friend is also a Seventh-day Adventist believer!  We were fairly blown out of the water when we looked at the odds of that happening with such a "random" invitation to be added as a friend.  K. chose someone in Norway (her roots) who had the same family name, that was all.  As far as she knows, she is the only person in Canada with her particular family name who is Adventist.So, if in Canada there are just slightly more than 1 in 500 (.2% of 34M) people who are Adventist, and in Norway there are 1/1000 people are Adventist (.1% of 5M) people, what are the odds of finding a friend on Facebook who has the same last name as you and is Adventist?  I will have to ask my statistician friend, Paul, but I would think they are pretty minuscule.  In any case, it has been a delight to find out... and to know that there is more to this adventure than God has currently revealed... We all agree that it is definitely a God-thing!

Must go to bed now.  Happy Sabbath all friends reading this!
