Joy is our banquet

Joy is our banquet,
And mercy our song.
Every heart is fragranced
By a dazzling, holy love.
Spirits are bathed and bright,
Compassion sings in every voice,
We dance the steps of wisdom and love this life again.
Keri Wehlander

As I prepare to leave for an extended time of holiday, I hope that these spirit-bathed words of Keri Wehlander will go with you wherever life takes you this summer.

Calling All Jam, Jelly and Pickle Makers!
If you're making preserves this summer, why not set some aside to donate to Beach United's Christmas Market? It takes place in November and we're still planning the details, but we know that homemade jams, jellies, relishes, chutneys and pickles always sell fast.
A few things to keep in mind:
* All preserves must be shelf stable (no fridge pickles or freezer jams).
* We can't store them at the church so please keep them at home for now.
* Have extra canning jars? Or do you need canning jars?
Contact Leigh Bowser (647 449 8332) to make arrangements to drop off or pick up donated empty jars. (Please don't bring them to the church.)

Gardening Group
The group currently meets outside the church at 140 Wineva Avenue on Saturday’s from 9.30 to 10.30 am. Contact Matthew Canaran at
