THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18th, 2016 - Sign on Queen Street - "By 2050 the International Language of the world will be French" ...

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 21st, 2016 - Second Sunday in Lent - join us for morning worship at 10:00 - Rev. Rafael Vallejo leading. Sunday will be the second in our Jazz & Justice series. Featuring Julian Anderson Bowes and his group. Improv breaks away from worship styles where the only words people say are those that have been crafted for them by someone else or hymns already chosen for them. There is power that comes from having the gathered community create and improvise their own spoken word while proclaiming God's dream for the world.

Following worship we will remain in the sanctuary for our Annual Congregational Meeting. Please bring your copy of the Annual Report.

MISSION CAPSULES: Presbyterian World Service & Development works with global partners to combat injustices and protect the rights of women, children, farmers, refugees and persons with disabilities. At the Garu Community Based Rehabilitation Centre in Ghana, local partners empower and teach vocational skills to people with disabilities so that they can achieve their full potential. When Lamisi injured her spine and lost the ability to walk, she thought all hope was lost. After her surgery, she received physical therapy and a pair of crutches at Garu. She was also offered training in small business development. Lamisi now owns a shop and is earning enough to meet her needs. Lamisi is filled with thanks for the support to continue living a full, productive life.

NOTE: Repairs to the sanctuary ceiling have been completed.

LEXOPHILIA:

How does Moses make tea? Hebrews it!

Venison for dinner, again? Oh deer!

I used to be a banker, but then I lost interest!

Haunted French pancakes give me the crepes!

England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool!

I tried to catch some fog, but I mist!

Have a good week - stay warm MB
