MISSION CAPSULE: The cost of living in Saskatchewan is rising, making it even more challenging for those on the margins to make ends meet. Saskatoon Native Circle Ministry understands that, when times are tough, people need spiritual as well as physical care. With support from Presbyterians Sharing … the ministry offers a clothing and food program, a mid-week worship service, an arts program, and crisis and spiritual counseling. Rooted in First Nations’ traditions and gospel teachings, SNCM offers prayer, friendship and radical hospitality to those who are struggling.

MONDAY, JULY 2nd, 2018 - Theology on Tap continues at the Beacher Café at 7:00. Hopefully the books will have arrived, if not, there is certainly lots to talk about. Join us.

COMING UP IN JULY: Beaches Annual Jazz Festival – watch for details.

Recently when cleaning out my desk – I found this and thought you all might enjoy it. This is for the people who do not like going to work.


1. Godliness, cleanliness and punctuality are the necessities of a good business.

2. This firm has reduced the hours of work, and the clerical staff will now only have to be present between the hours of 7:00 am and 6:00 pm on weekdays.

3. Daily prayers will be held each morning in the main office. The clerical staff will be present.

4. Clothing must be of a sober nature. The clerical staff will not disport themselves in raiment of bright colours, nor will they wear hose, unless in good repair. Overshoes and topcoats may not be worn in the office, but neck scarves and headwear may be worn in inclement weather.

5. A stove is provided for the benefit of clerical staff. Coal and wood must be kept in the locker. It is recommended that each member of the clerical staff bring four pounds of coal each day during the cold weather.

6. No member of the clerical staff may leave the room without permission from Mr. Rogers. The calls of nature are permitted and clerical staff may use the garden below the second gate. This must be kept in good order.

7. No talking is allowed during business hours.

8. The craving of tobacco, wines or spirits is a human weakness, and, as such, is forbidden to all members of the clerical staff.

9. The owners recognize the new Labour Laws, but will expect a great rise in output of work to compensate for these near Utopian conditions.

Have a good week - Celebrate our great country.
