                     I’m serious about fun!
     Students experiencing difficulty learning to read often
 find themselves caught in a cycle of failure and tend to avoid
 activities(such as reading!) that will help them break out of
 that cycle.
     When literacy activities are designed to be fun, engaging,
 or meaningful, the necessary effort to overcome reading
 difficulties becomes easier to make.
     With experiences of success, learners begin to feel
 competent and in control. These positive feelings increase
 motivation and skills improve.
     I can help make this happen with tutoring tailored to your
 child’s ability level, interests and learning style.
     My name is Hettie Willekes and I’ve had thirty years
 teaching experience as well as three years of tutoring. I am
 constantly upgrading my skills and the work I do with my
 students is based on the latest research.

             Excavating the Spiritual Depths of the Oil/Tar Sands Developments:
                       Where are We Going and What Should We Do?
As an icon of our globalized culture the oil/tar sands offer an astonishing ‘re-presentation’ of the sweeping trends and challenges facing our
culture today. What are the oil/tar sands developments really all about? They are dramatically reshaping our society, so the Churches, and
Christians in general, urgently need to understand and engage them. This workshop offers an opportunity to discern and struggle together
with the deeper spiritual thrust and meaning of the oil/tar sands developments and to explore ways of tackling these questions. Facilitator Dr.
John Hiemstra is Professor of Political Studies and Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences, at The King’s University College in Edmonton.

                 Walking Our Hope: Lenten Retreat with Bishop Jane Alexander
Lent is a journey towards the certainty of the risen Christ. We walk in the promise that our hope will be fulfilled. Using the Exultet of the Easter
Vigil we will explore the wisdom of the mystics, and a variety of music and art to encourage us in our own Lenten journeys.

                                              AWAY DAYS with Sandy Prather
Sometimes it is good to get away. When we get away, we step back from the ordinary routine. We rest and relax; we allow ourselves to be
renewed. We take time simply ‘to be,’ instead of always ‘doing.’ We have time for listening and learning, sharing and reflecting. There’s time
to simply enjoy. The good news is you can get away without having to go too far. Star of the North is planning a series of ‘Away’ Days for
your enjoyment and pleasure. This year, each Away Day will focus on a different contemporary spiritual book. Through a combination of
presentations and reflective time, we will explore the themes and ideas of the author, and apply their insights to our lives (it is not necessary to
have read the books). We invite you to take advantage of the peaceful space at the Star and join us for ‘Away’ Days. Call for the book titles.

Runny nose? Itchy eyes? Trouble breathing? One often-overlooked cause of allergies, asthma, sinusitis,
and so forth, is poor digestion and elimination! These can be the root cause of many of these symptoms.

if they enter the blood stream partially digested. Learn the importance of certain basic nutrition including
food, vitamins, minerals, and oils to tame allergies and related conditions.
