Yes, you read the title rightly. This is Sunday’s Coming #99. I’m not sure how to celebrate triple digits next week. Maybe I should take my mobile device to the top of the church and do a special, on site, Sunday’s Coming video blog. Maybe not.
Last week at the 11:30 a.m., a big thank you to David W., who arranged for a Skype connection with Michelle V. This made it possible for Michelle V., who recently moved back home, to read the Scripture lessons from her bedroom in Edmonton, AB as part of the worship service.
This Sunday we welcome some of the youth from Briarwood who attended Canada Youth 2012 to lead in the sermon time at both services with faith sharing from the event. Their text is The Road to Emmaus, Luke 24: 15-32. This initiative was made possible through Presbyterians Sharing, and September 30th is a Sunday set side aside across Canada for churches to celebrate and be reminded that our work and ministry is not for ourselves, but that we exist as a church to reach out beyond our walls. Our prayers and our giving do this in tangible ways, including affecting for good the lives of youth seeking to live lives of Christian faith today.
As I wrote in my October Newsletter letter, Nabih Saikaly has agreed to take Briarwood’s Facebook page to the next level. To assist with this project of reaching out through social media, please go the Page and indicate you “like” it.
This week remember:
Audrey M., in hospital.
With best wishes,
