Monday Musings – 19/07/10
Each summer in the Province of Quebec, the last two weeks of July are called “the construction holiday”. Traditionally, much of Quebec goes on vacation. Trades people and many businesses close down for two weeks and people leave the cities in droves heading for campgrounds, cottages, tourist areas and the USA.
You would think that road construction crews would take a holiday but ironically Quebec uses these two weeks to do major road closures causing one to wonder what the term “construction holiday” really means. The usual morning and evening traffic jams that occur all year-long as people go to and from work, are replaced for two weeks by traffic jams caused by road construction closures – go figure.
I saw this road sign in Google images and could not resist putting it into my blog. MJ and I have spent the first six months of 2010 talking to over 1200 pastors, church leaders and bible college students in seven countries of the world about “re-inventing the church”. Now we are going to join many thousands in the Province of Quebec and take a “re-construction” holiday for the next couple of weeks.
Monday Musings will return in mid August and MJ and I will once again be refreshed and ready to take the message of “re-inventing the church” to Canada and the rest of the world.
To all of those who are taking time to “re-construct” your self with a summer vacation, I wish you a safe and rest-filled time away!
