MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... are making mission and ministry happen in Canada and around the world. Together, we share in a wide range of ministries - supporting inner city, native, refugee, urban, remote and chaplaincy ministries in Canada; starting new churches, equipping congregations and leaders and sending mission personnel to work with international partners. Our gifts help share the good news of the gospel, they are making a difference!

NOTE: CBC'S Radio Tapestry program aired a podcast of the Gospel of Mark. It is only 54 mins, so it has been edited a bit. But it can be downloaded - it's free and is, apparently, great. Tom Allen introduces it. Just Google CBC podcasts and it is easy to find.....and yes, it is the reading from Beaches on Good Friday.
