Black History at 11 am on Zoom Feb 27
Please Note the time change. The service will begin 11 am.
Sunday February 27 is all about Black History when a selection of special musicians and speakers will join us for a Zoom service. Father Steven Greene, an Anglican minister who serves at St. Thomas the Apostle Anglican Church in Cambridge will be our guest speaker. Bishop Pryse will also participate in this inspiring service.
Black History Month is about honouring the enormous contributions that Black people have made, and continue to make, in all sectors of society. It is about celebrating resilience, innovation, and determination to work towards a more inclusive and diverse Canada—a Canada in which everyone has every opportunity to flourish. Members of the planning group are Arlene Knight, Mrs. Bell, Mrs. Thomas and Pastor Philip, Sue Simpson and Karen Gastmeier.
An Invitation from Mrs. Bell and Mrs. Thomas
Live Spring Book Discussion, Tuesday, May 3, 1:30-3:00 pm
Health Council will be holding a book discussion on Made for Goodness and Why This Makes All the Difference by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Mpho Tutu, also an Anglican priest. Tutu tells touching stories from his own life, as well as horrific memories of his work in dark places of the world. From there he invites us to take on the disciplines of goodness, the practices that are key to finding fulfillment, meaning and happiness for our lives. We think this book is a fitting selection as a way of honouring a great man who most recently died.
The place and format of the discussion will be decided as we get closer to the date. If you have any questions, please contact Mary Slethaug. If interested, Betty Behm will order and deliver a book for you. Please contact her at 519-896-2245.
