MISSION CAPSULES: Imagine trying to read or understand the Bible if it wasn't available in your language. Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... are helping to translate the Bible into several languages: Hakka in Taiwan; Kotoko in northern Cameroon; Izii, Ikwo, Ezaa and Mgbolizhia in Nigeria; and Mauritian Creole in Mauritius. Bible translation is a complex process. It can be a challenge for translators to capture the nuances, imagery and poetry of the Bible stories and to keep the text faithful to the original Hebrew and Greek. Let us thank God for those Bible translators who are helping to shine the light of Christ for people who yearn to read the Bible in their own language.

ANNUAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING: This year our annual meeting will be February 24th, 2013 following worship. All annual reports need to be in the office before January 29th, 2013.

For your information: It should be noted that our current financial difficulties are due to some unexpected expenses this past year. We had to redo the roof over the auditorium; there was a minor flood in the basement; we had the Fire Inspection which added considerable expenses to our budget AND let's not forget the furnace. We have the windows to deal with as well.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15th and SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16th, 2013 - "God and the Multiverse" a conference, at Ryerson University, organized by our own Klaas Kraay. No registration fee and all are welcome to attend. For details www.ryerson.ca/~kraay/multiverse.html

Something to think about!!

If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal!

A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat!

A rabbit runs and hops all day and only lives fifteen years.

A tortoise doesn't run and does nothing, and lives for 450 years!

and you tell me to exercise? I don't think so! I'm retired, go around me!

Have a good week MB
