GREAT LAKES: Lake Superior contains three quadrillion gallons of water. All five of the Great Lakes combined contain six quadrillion gallons.

Contained within Lake Superior is a whopping 10% of the world’s fresh surface water.

It is estimated that there are about 100 million lake trout in Lake Superior – that is nearly one fifth of the human population of North America.

There are small outlets through which water leaves Lake Superior. It takes two centuries for all the water in the lake to replace itself.

MISSION CAPSULE: Food is central to fellowship, providing both physical and emotional nourishment. Not surprisingly, some of the ministries supported by gifts to Presbyterians Sharing … share God’s love through food. The Raw Carrot Soup Enterprise in Hamilton, Ontario provides nourishment with their homemade soup, while giving meaningful employment to people with disabilities and mental health illnesses. Cooking and nutrition workshops at Tyndale St. Georges Community Centre in Montreal, Quebec help parents of young children open up as they discuss the challenges of parenting. Besides providing lunches at their drop-in centre, Kenora Fellowship Centre in Kenora, Ontario hosts a monthly Elder’s Breakfast to show respect and care for elderly patrons, many of whom are survivors of Indian Residential Schools. These ministries are sharing the love of Christ through hospitality.

MORE ABOUT MOM’S FROM THE CHILDREN

What did Mom need to know about Dad before she married him?

1. His last name.

2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?

3. Does he make at least $800 a year. Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?

Why did your Mom marry your Dad?

1. My Dad makes the best spaghetti in the world and my Mom eats a lot.

2. She got too old to do anything else with him.

3. My grandma says that Mom didn’t have her thinking cap on.

Who’s the boss at your house?

1. Mom doesn’t want to be boss, but she has to because Dad’s such a goof ball.

2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.

3. I guess Mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than Dad.

Have a blessed Easter. MB
