GROWING AS A PERSON
“The greatest gift you can offer
… is the gift of being a growing
person yourself.”
This response to a concerned
parent of a junior high student
from Catholic writer Henri Nouwen
grabs my attention and captures
my imagination. It begs the question – am I a growing person? It
invites our broader community to
wonder- are we growing? In quality and maturity … even as new
residents, homes, and developments are added to Strathmore.
In the last several weeks, here are
some areas of “growth” I’ve observed in our community. I’ve seen
significant expressions of generosity, care, and concern expressed
towards neighbours. I’ve seen gift
cards and food shared, support
offered, a deck built, resources
donated. In the spirit of family and
Thanksgiving, I’ve seen the lines of
family blurred to hospitably include
and adopt those without family into
significant times of celebration,
encouragement and fun. I’ve also
witnessed a willingness to pursue
difficult conversations that expand
and confront long held perspectives, preconceived ideas, and
generational bias.
This kind of growth is not easy. It
flies in the face of personal comfort, selfishness, fears and anxiet-

ies- and demands courage. These
ordinary real-time expressions
of growth confront established
individual and corporate patterns
of brokenness, institutionalism,
racism, traditionalism- and often
make us uncomfortable. But, I
believe this kind of growth is a gift
that we offer one another in order
to be and become a more gracious, whole, healthy, and vibrant
community.
To follow the lead of the title of this
weekly column, followers of Jesus
may be familiar with his words in
the Sermon on the Mount - “you
are the salt of the earth … you are
the light of the world.”
This bold proclamation is made
even bolder if we are able to
receive it. He’s actually inviting his
listeners to proclaim, “I am the salt
of the earth … I am the light of the
world.”
To proclaim (read live) this
message with integrity invites and
demands that I (and we) grow.
I believe this is the best kind of
growth, because like Nouwen, I
believe that this kind of growth
is the greatest gift we can offer
our family, our neighbours, our
co-workers, our community, province, nation and world.

The Wheatland Kings put forth a great effort in
both of their weekend games, resulting in a 5-4
road win over the Stettler Lightning on Oct. 17,
but lost 4-2 to the Red Deer Vipers on Oct. 18
at home.

JUSTIN SEWARD
Time Reporter
The Wheatland Kings performance from one
weekend to the next is as different as night and
day.
After going 0-3 the previous week, the local
junior-B team defeated the Stettler Lightning 5-4
on the road on Oct. 17, before letting a 2-0 lead
slip the following night in a 4-2 loss to Red Deer
on home ice.
Kings forward Jay Manning thought the loss
was a tough one to swallow, but said it’s a matter
of the team bearing down on their chances to put
teams away.
“We kind of let up in the third and they advanced on us,” said Manning. “I mean we got to
learn from our mistakes and put that one behind
us. We’ll come out next game and play better,
more stronger.”
Manning thought they had a strong start to
the game but felt they got too confident with the
lead, where the Vipers were able to capitalize on
their opportunities.
Coach Emilio Fouco did not fault the team’s
compete level in the two games but said it’s just
a matter of knowing how to finish games when
having the lead.
“We played fairly well,” said Fouco. “We have
a team that’s young and gelling and just needs
to learn how to win those games. It was really a
point of we didn’t take advantage of all our opportunities and they buried theirs.”
Fouco added that the game in Stettler was a
case of just sticking with it and working hard
while taking advantage of opportunities that the
Lightning gave them.
Chris Williams scored two goals to lead the
way, while Jacen Bracko, Brooker Pretty Youngman and Lucas Jones sniped one each in the win.
Pretty Youngman and rookie Colton Piercey
scored in the loss to the Vipers.
The Kings will play three games in three days
this weekend, beginning in Medicine Hat on Oct.
23 at 8:15 p.m.
They will host Mountainview on Oct. 24 (8
p.m.), and wrap up the weekend in Airdrie on
Oct. 25 (3 p.m.).
