As we begin the month of August, we continue to worship in ordinary time, although there is nothing “ordinary” about Vancouver Island. We are blessed to live in such a beautiful place and to be enjoying a good summer. We keep in our prayers the many places in the country and the world that are dealing with the effects of global warming and renew our own efforts to do what we can regarding climate change. We will soon be moving into the Anglican Season of Creation which will  give us opportunities to consider this urgent imperative and our own role in responding to it.  

We will be holding our Sunday worship outside on the following Sundays:  August 13th and September 3rd.  

I would like to express my deep appreciation to Rev. Karen, who presided over the liturgies and responded to pastoral issues while I was on vacation. I am grateful also to Cory and Joan, our wardens who carry out their ministry always with consistency, reflectiveness, and love. A special thank you to Joan who has been working steadily on Tuesday mornings to dig out the weeds in the labyrinth. This is beautiful weather for walking the labyrinth and I encourage to take the opportunity to do that.  

I am enjoying the individual conversations that I’m having with some of you and remind you that I am available for these times of connection. Just let me know and I’ll be glad to make an appointment with you.  A reminder too that if you are unable to come to Sunday worship, I am happy to bring communion to you and pray with you.  

Blessings   Rev. Colleen
