MISSION CAPSULE: For Palestinians, the olive tree is a symbol of their nationality and connection to the land. Cultivated for thousands of years, it is a major source of income for many households. Between 1967 and 2009, over 830,000 olive trees were uprooted by Israelie settlers and military to build settlements and roads. In 2002, the Joint Advocacy Initiative launched the Olive Tree Campaign (OTC) inviting partners to sponsor olive trees as a sign of solidarity with Palestinian farmers. The OTC has supported 15000 households, with 200,000 Olive trees, allowing them to maintain their lands, earn an income and keep their hope alive. The PCC has been supporting this life-giving project since 2018, in celebration of the campaign’s 20th anniversary, organizers hope to plant 40,000 olive trees in 2022 and they still need sponsors for 15,000 trees to reach the goal.

BEACHES HISTORY: The painting at the front of the sanctuary is a “prayer painting” and was executed during Lent several years ago. Each small section is one person’s impression of a particular prayer. At the time, elder Tim Murray set it up and everyone in the congregation took a turn painting a prayer. It’s an important piece of our history and our sanctuary.

PUNNERY!!

My best mates and I played a game of hide and seek. It went on for hours…Well, good friends are hard to find!

You’re not completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example…

I broke my finger last week. On the other hand, I’m OK.

Someone stole my Microsoft Office and they’re gonna pay. You have my Word….

Don’t spell part backwards. It’s a trap.

And the Lord said unto John, “come forth and you will receive eternal life”. But John came fifth and he got hell.

Hope you all have a good week - MB
