Town Hall Meeting -- during our visioning exercises
"better communication" was an area identified as
needing attention. It was decided that one way to
address this would be holding "Town Hall Meetings".
What are town hall meetings? Simply they are an
informal time during the fellowship hour after service
where some of the more important and pressing work
of the parish council is shared. It is also a time where
members of the worshiping community have
opportunity to ask questions of those council
members that are present in an open forum. This
will take place on October 4th.
10 year Anniversary in Holy Orders -- September
21st, marks the 10 year anniversary of the Rev.
Trevor Lightfoot and the Rev. Barry Connor being
admitted and ordained into the Holy Order of
Deacons. This occasion will be marked and witness
to during our regular worship service on Sunday
September 27th. Our special guest preacher for this
day will be the Rev. Jane Clattenburg. Rev. Jane
once served in the faith community of St. Andrew's
as a student in the late 90's, she was also ordained a
deacon with Rev. Trevor and Rev. Barry 10 years ago.
Confirmation Classes -- plans for a regional
confirmation class are underway and registration will
be sometime in Oct/Nov. If you or someone you know
who is 15 years and older would like to consider
being confirmed please speak to the Rev. Trevor
Lightfoot in the near future.
Celebration 2010 -- On June 6th, 2010 there is to

Responding to God’s Grace
The population in North America represents 20% of
the human family, yet controls 64% of the world’s
wealth. The average world family income is only
$7500 so by that standard North Americans should
feel very powerful. But instead many of us live in fear
of not having enough money, enough time and
personal space. We worry about the stock market
and the recession forecast.
But this is where God’s grace comes in. Not just in
some of us, God’s grace is available to everyone. Our
gifts are our manifestations of God’s generosity in us.
Just as God’s generosity knows no boundaries, even
to the point of giving Christ to us, we can consider
our own gifts. Our gratitude for God’s grace is
reflected in the gifts we share generously with others.
Our giving liberates us from our fears that there
won’t be enough. Our gifts are enough. In fact they
are crucial for doing God’s work in the world. Let
your light shine!
