I don’t know. Last week the AIM International Services (AIM Air is a branch of IS) director resigned in protest over how IS would interact with other AIM regions. I don’t know the full details of that situation so rather than get them wrong I’ll just skip them. The big question is, though, what will AIM Air look like in six months? Will we go to Lokichogio? When will we go? IF we don’t go to Loki what will we (AIM Air) do with the Loki flying? What will we be doing if we don’t go to Loki?

Lots of questions. Unfortunately we’re all really short of answers. The AIM director is in town this week to talk to IS and hopefully answer some of the bigger questions.

More to come.

    More uncertainty is exactly what you all wanted, too! Sorry….

    As my old priest used to say, “No need to go looking for sacrifices. Your asceticism is right in front of you.” There, I’m sure you feel MUCH better about the whole thing now! 😉

    Your other sister says, “Want to hear the gods laugh? Make a plan.” I, too, am sorry that Loki is working out the way it is. I hope you can get out of Nairobi and that Loki will be adequately served.

    I’d agree with your old priest, Vicki, but I haven’t a clue what he means. Personally I think Charlotte has it. God does seem to chuckle at our plans.

    We’re supposed to meet today, and the ladies tomorrow, with Lannie (the AIM director) and hopefully we’ll get a clue.

    He was referring to people who go around looking for things to give up to discipline themselves — “asceticism.” He means that we don’t have to compare ourselves to others, but deal with what God puts in front of us. In Orthodoxy, that means at the very least the calendared fasting days.

    In other words, don’t think you have to suffer MORE to be a Christian.
