Good day my dear friends,
Happy Canada Day!
Wow, we have been waiting for this day for a long time.
We are now legally able to meet without restrictions in our church building.
Our signs are gone and barriers down......
but it all feels a bit strange....
I remember the feeling of strangeness when this all started.
That feeling is sort of back.... except there is a lot more joy this time!
Come, enjoy fellowship, be safe, hand sanitize
and use a mask if you like. (The recommendation is to wear a mask indoors if you are not fully vaccinated.)
We have switched our service time to 10:30 as we are planning to have only one service during the summer months.
Come early and stay late if you wish.
There will be a coffee-time downstairs / outside at the back of the church.
Meet, greet and transition back to a place of being comfortable around one another.
For those unable to meet In Person our On Line stream / recording will be broadcast as normal on our Facebook Group page.
The word for me today was,
James 1:2 Count it all joy, my brothers,
when you meet trials of various kinds,
3 for you know that the testing of your faith produces
4 And let steadfastness have its full effect,
that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
God continues to teach me to:
- Trust in Him
- Learn from this moment
- Have grace for myself and others.
- And pray more continually than ever.
It reminds me of a camp song from the 70s
...And Jesus said,
"Come to the water, stand by my side
I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied
Thanks for walking with us Jesus,
