MONDAY MUSINGS   June 28th, 2021

"Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you". John 21.17
We are very quickly approaching summer. There are lots of things happening in everyone's lives. Everyone, including myself, is hoping to reconnect with family and friends, and have lots of different adventures in the next couple of months. 
Congratulations to all our graduates this year. New possibilities await as the weeks unfold. New schools, new jobs, new challenges. 
In our church our parish ministry continues to unfold. We are preparing for outreach projects, planning a cold plate take out supper in July 24, and other activities. 
We are not planning in house worship this summer. Worship will continue to be recorded and uploaded every Sunday morning so that we can worship, just not at the same physical location. The recording of the services, which was done on Sunday morning, is now going to be shifted to midweek. 
We are also renting our hall to Elections NS, so when you see cars in our parking lot through the summer, that is no doubt who is present. We will work together to share the space as effectively as we can, so that we can enjoy our space while making it available for appropriate use in the community. 
I pray that all our summers will be filled with rest and recreation, fun and adventures, and deep meaningful moments of reflection for the new challenges that are ahead. May God bless us all. 
Almighty God, whose wisdom and whose love are over all, accept the prayers we offer for our nation. Give integrity to its citizens and wisdom to those in authority, that harmony and justice may be secured in obedience to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
Take care, and God bless
Rev. Mark Kingsbury
