A Real-Life "Blast from the Past" Adventure

Have you seen the 1999 movie, Blast from the Past? Here's an inspirational, real-life Blast from the Past adventure! Believe-it-or-not, a Trinity Western University professor constructed a 2,000 square foot, four-level, subterranean bomb shelter beneath his home just for fun. How is it being used? It's a tourist attraction.

We're not short of inspiration this week. Janet Epp Buckingham's weblog, Back from Burnout, leads you to ask, Am I running close to burnout? And you may be. We all need to get away to see our lives from a realistic perspective. We all need vacations.

But Geoff Tunnicliffe isn't travelling the world and living on planes for recreation. He travels in his capacity as the international coordinator for the World Evangelical Alliance, and writes weblogs in his spare time - during 27-hour flights. Read a redemptive story from his most recent trip to Rwanda with Rick Warren, author of Purpose Driven Life. See how God is moving in a country decimated by tribal war (see P.E.A.C.E. for Rwanda).

And also, some serious fun with Phil Callaway. See his advice to those whose lives are "on loan" from the corner bank (see Finances—A Matter of Life and Debt).

Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer!

Blessings in Christ,
