MISSION CAPSULES: Almanarah is an Arabic word that means "lighthouse." With support from Presbyterians Sharing ... Almanarah Church is sharing Christ's light with Arabic-speaking people in and around Hamilton, Ontario. This church draws people from many places, including Egypt, Iraq, Sudan and Ethiopia. Members feel a real sense of belonging. A refugee woman started to attend Sunday worship after bringing her four-year-old son to the church's vacation Bible school. She is happy to be able to read the Bible in her own language. At a recent service, as the children were leaving the chapel for Sunday school with their teacher, a seven-year-old Sudanese boy who attends church with his brother and grandmother excitedly called out, "I love this church!" As the Rev. Amin Mansour says, "What a blessing!"

I have questions!!!

Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety-one?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? Aren't they just stale bread to begin with?

If people from Poland are called Poles, then why aren't people from Holland called Holes?

If a pig loses it's voice, is it disgruntled?

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person who drives a race car is not called a racist?

Do Lipton Tea employees take 'coffee breaks'?

Why, why, why do we press harder on the remote when we know the batteries are getting weak?

Have a good week MB
