Having enjoyed another wonderful July at the Church of the Good Shepherd please join us this coming Sunday back at St. Laurence. We will be in the St. Laurence building for all the August services and look forward to welcoming our friends from Good Shepherd at our place. Because Good Shepherd is currently without an Incumbant there will be someone from St. Laurence (either Carolyn or myself) at all the August services. However, we will be using the Good Shepherd worship book and welcoming The Rev. David Rankin, their honorary assistant, and Beryl Parkinson, a lay preacher from Good Shepherd, as part of the worship leadership.
This year's period of being away from the St. Laurence building allowed for some work to be done on the St. Laurence facility. During the month of July not only was some touch up painting done and the floors given a good cleaning, but all five furnaces were replaced. Many thanks to Phil Crowe for all his work coordinating the furnace work. We hope we don't have to use them for some months!
As our article this month Steve Koning has written a reflection regarding his experience being at the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada in July. Please take a moment to read his reflections below. He will also be speaking and answering questions at a 'Conversations' on Sunday, September 11th.
With every blessing,
