home again, home again

Had a great family vacation in and around Winnipeg. Connected with a number of church leaders in the avant-church world and connected with lots of family.

One night we got together with Mark Humphries and the simple church he does life with. Mark has been one of the truly innovative leaders in the avant-church world. I first met him in the mid-late ’90s at GenX 2.0 where he led a workshop integrating the church and arts. He was so far ahead of his time.

I also got to share breakfast with Brother Maynard. He’s a really good missional thinker and has an amazing grasp of the Winnipeg scene.

Next time I hope to also connect with Jamie Arpin-Ricci.

But mostly we spent time with our family. The Friesen family had a big reunion (my dad is one of 12 kids), I hadn’t seen some of my cousins in at least 20 years. It was so good to be together, and sense our roots, and hear life stories.

We stayed with Lynette’s brother’s family. A great time . . . I wish we lived closer together. Here are a couple of photos.

  2. Hey Dwight, my name is Phil Cunningham. I live here in Seattle and am involved in a non-profit here called YWAM. One of my good friends Zach Rupp is in your Tuesday evening class at Mars Hill. I am from Winnipeg and am good friends with Jamie Arpin Ricci. It was good to see that you went there. My family and I are moving to Saskatchewan for a couple of years in June, maybe next time you are there i will see ya.
