Bemidji Cousins

We spent the weekend up north with the Berge clan! It was great to see everyone again! Matt and Beth were moved into their new house and Ben and Mindy also have moved into the "cottage" by my Grandma Berge's home! The other exciting thing was being able to see Melanie's pictures from her Ireland trip. Absolutely beautiful! Here are some pictures of our time together.

The two little cousins will have so much fun together in the future! Only 10 days apart

The same goes for Erina and Elianna. Even at a year apart, they are very close in size. I am thrilled to have nieces and nephews for my kids to play with! We were also able to spend time with Katey and Thomas. What sweet cousins we have been blessed with! Thank you Lord!

It was fun to see you at the shower for Mindy! Looks like the rest of your time was fun.

I was trying to remember the name of that "religious movement" you were talking about so I could read up on it. Could you let me know? Thanks Miss!

Sam and Melissa Sahlstrom said...

Sure Karen! It is called the Emergent Church or Emerging which practices Contemplative Prayer.
From what I understand it is brining Jesus into the New Age religions so it can be called "Christian". Very dangerous. They also do chanting and place a huge emphasis on feelings. Thus the candles and the meditation that is not based on God's Word. Check into it and let me know what you discover.
