Migrant Worker Welcome. Hello again Friends, Yes… many of you have been asking if everything is on board again this year.  The answer is yes, yes, yes.  As we all know without the help and enthusiasm of all of you, this outreach would never have gotten off the ground many years ago. Our date is Saturday June 17 at our small but mighty Kilbride Church.  Now is the time to start pleading with your family, friends and neighbours for men’s clothing, shoes, towels, blankets, bedding, pillows and suitcases. We save women’s and children’s items until the fall.  We always need bicycles, too. We are in search of a standalone basketball hoop that we could position in the backyard to be enjoyed by our migrant worker guests and  enjoyed by the community at other times.  We will once again set up our store on the Friday afternoon at 1pm. We are always open to new suggestions that you think would work well with our guests.  Let us know.  We have our entertainment set . Unfortunately, the young lady who entertained at the Soup Feast in Hamilton wasn’t available.  Maybe another time.  Always looking for new talent. Won’t it be wonderful if we can set up our tables in the backyard ?  I hope we are getting our summer’s worth of rain now so that the sun will shine and the clouds will clear for us on the 17th of June. Blessings to you and all those you love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Sharon

Thursdays at 3:00-4:30pmpm beginning March 9  to April 13. Led by Rev. Lorna.

Living Mindfully:  Connecting to Ourselves through Mindfulness Meditation:

Learning to live in deeper connection with our body, mind and spirit, our everyday lives and those around us

In learning to “live mindfully” we will be practicing ‘being’ and connecting to our own lives.

We spend a lot of time with our minds busy in the past or future and sometimes miss out on the present moments of our days.  That moment is all we have; the past is gone, the future is not yet here.

In learning to ‘live mindfully’ we begin to pay attention to our stress and how we sometimes are triggered to react to things.  We can begin to choose how to respond in our days rather than live reactively.

We learn a practice of meditation that can enable us to cope differently with life and find the moments of joy that sometimes we miss in our mental and physical business.

By learning to allow ourselves to be in the moment with things as they are and without trying to change anything we allow ourselves to be present to ourselves and to God in the place of both powerlessness and power.
