A Frosty Fest weekend as seen through Instagram

A stroll through the thoughts and sights of Frosty Fest 2012... via Instagram

If you don't love your city, you should either learn to love it or find one you can; because God loves it and sent you into it to show it.

So eat your meals heartily, not worrying about what others say about you—you're eating to God's glory, after all, not to please them. As a matter of fact, do everything that way, heartily and freely to God's glory.
1 Cor 10:31

Nothing worth doing comes without some kind of fight.
Bruce Cockburn

Even now I can't describe why I love skating so much.
Nancy Kerrigan

"Hundreds of people lined up outside Freedom House Church in the Market Square Mall on Monday morning for a pancake breakfast astonishing organizers and bringing people into the downtown for family day.

“We were prepared for this but I can't say that we were expecting it,” Dave Carol, also known as Captain Kindness said. “We sent out 20,000 tickets to elementary school kids in the city for the pancake breakfast but this is the first year we've done this, so we really didn't know what to expect. Clearly, it's a winner with so many people showing up this morning.”
Dave Carrol in the Brantford Expositor article called "Organizers estimate 15,000 took in Frosty Fest"

If you're planning on eating and going on the Berry-go-round... go on the Berry-go-round first. Or else bring a mop.

I was asked what my favorite part of Frosty Fest is. My favorite part is THAT it happens.

There were days where I'd sit in church and be bothered that we weren't doing "The Stuff"...
I don't feel that anymore.

"Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live" 1Tim 2:2-3

Dave Carol: "Today felt like seeing the dream of what so many of us have had for years about what Brantford could be. Turns out... it now IS."
Chris Friel: "We are where we wanted to be"

We're stronger together than we are apart

"Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper." Jer 29:7

"If you build it... they will come"
The Voice

"Horses, like old wooden sailing ships, are breathtaking"
Aaron White

“We really want to let the community know that churches like Freedom House are about the community, We want to be part of the transformation of the downtown.”
Brian Beattie in the Brant News article called "Celebrating Winter at Frosty Fest"

"This weekend is one of the reasons I love my job so much"
A Parks
& Recreation worker

After 3 days of full-on work... Frosty Fest was cleaned up by a team of volunteers in ONE HOUR
Worship and Work.

Brantford can be changed BY good INTO good.

"Not to us, but to your name be the glory"
Chris Tomlin

"Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws we wait for you;
Your name and renown are the desire of our hearts."
Isaiah 26:8
