JANUARY 13, 2018
And we are off!!!!! We arrived home and the realities of life in Calgary and at SDUC are in full swing. A message from Wayne on our SDUC Forum for book study should be on line for everyone in the Forum today. (P.S. You can join this opportunity to communicate with active participants in ACTS Monday Night Book Study and Thursday morning Bible Study by contacting Wayne or Jock.)
This is a reminder that our Monday Night Study on the theme "Not in God's Name -
Religion and Violence" begins Monday, January 22nd - ten days from now.
We ordered a total of 40 books, and six copies remain for sale in the church lobby
this Sunday. So far, 30 people have registered. We always have room for more!
If you want a book held for you, it will be on a first come, first served basis.
Thursday Morning Bible Study begins next week on January 18th when we decide
on the biblical book(s) we plan to study this winter. Newcomers are always welcome.
Our St. David's Lenten Retreat at Mount St. Francis, Cochrane will take place on
Sunday, March 4th - 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM. The theme, led by retreat leader Susan
Campbell is: "Encountering a Sacred Intimacy With God"
Mark your calendars for these events! I will keep you posted.
JANUARY 7, 2018
We are on our way home! It is an overcast day in Portland - we miss the sunshine of Calgary!
Things are back in full swing at St. David's. The office opened on Thursday for 2018. Welcome back, Chantal. Happy New Year to you. I have uploaded the Newsletter for January 7, 2018 but am reminding you that Coffee and Muffin Ministry (7a.m. to 2 p.m.) this month has been rescheduled for January 18. See you there.

As the New Year dawns, the temperature moderates, boding well for the coming year. Yes, it is about time - after surviving sub zero temperatures for days. I listen to CBC Radio One from Calgary every night and have listened to the Eyeopener faithfully as the old year has drawn to a close. We have been enjoying the pleasant weather here in California but soon will be enroute for points north.
We are off to a busy new year with Healing Touch, Friendship Club, Muffin Ministry, ACTS Monday Night Book Study and Thursday Morning Bible Study on the agenda for January. The office will be closed until Thursday. Refer to the Newsletter for December for a reminder of upcoming events at St. David's.
