October Is Upon Us (almost)

Last Sunday was amazing - what a wonderful send off for Elizabeth. I so enjoyed joining you all for Sunday Worship. I love how personal the Anglican Service is. We all pray together throughout the service, sang without a feeling of “singing along” but of joining together in praise. I LIKE that. Plus all the stand up, sit down, stand up again stuff kept me alert! It felt like a congregation very much knitted together and safe - the Sunday service equivalent of a hot bath after a long, cold walk in the snow. So thank you all for creating such a palpable atmosphere of love and acceptance- it’s very special.

This Sunday we welcome the Reverend Harold Munn at our 8:30 am and 10 am services.

On Tuesday at 6 pm the Men’s Fellowship meet in the hall for dinner, chat and some male bonding. Sign up on the board by the hall.

 Men’s Fellowship - it’s like any other kind of fellowship but with more moustaches.

On Wednesday we meet at 10 am for Eucharist and Bible Study as usual. I urge you to come and find out what all the giggling is about. Apparently studying the Bible is hilarious - I need to put a microphone in there - I feel I’m missing out! The Centering Prayer Group meets at 5:30 pm. Hilarity is not so present there! But peace most certainly is and is equally restorative (so I’m told).

On Thursday the Parish Health Care Team meet at 9:15 am and the Craft Group at 10:30 am.

And then - suddenly - IT’S THANKSGIVING! If you’re planning on bringing fruit and/or veggies to decorate for Thanksgiving please bring them on or before Friday 5 October and leave them in the Peace Room/Library. Thank you.

One more thing - a date for your diary - there will be another “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?” event on Saturday 20 October. You will find sign up sheets in the Narthex so please consider if you would be happy to host a dinner, or if you would prefer to attend as a guest. The cost is $30 for which you get a nice dinner with charming company and probably find out some surprising things about your fellow guests. There are a lot of “still waters run deep” people in this church.
