MISSION CAPSULES: Did you know that you can find love letters among the thousands of documents housed in the Presbyterian Church in Canada’s Archives? Last year the Archives received a gift of 73 beautifully preserved, handwritten letters that revealed a year-long courtship over many miles between Dr. McQueen and his future wife, Miss Catherine Robertson of Strabane, Ontario. The Rev. McQueen served at First Presbyterian Church in Edmonton, arriving in 1887 and remaining for 43 years. Dr. McQueen was the only person to serve twice as Moderator of the General Assembly. Miss Robertson served as a missionary in Canada with the Women’s Missionary Society. David and Catherine’s exchanges date from September 1889 – September 1890. Through beautiful script containing poetry and prose, their growing love to one another is revealed as is their draw to western Canada and a mutual commitment to serve the church.

I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian.

A rubber band pistol was confiscated from algebra class, because it was a weapon of math disruption.

No matter how much you push the envelope, it’ll still be stationery.
