We are at the cottage.  It is the place for me that allows me to recharge my batteries and to get in touch with what’s really important.  Nature is all around me from the early morning squawk of the crows and woodpeckers waiting for their peanuts, to the gentle lapping of the water in the evenings and the haunting call of the loon.  I am continually amazed and in awe of the beauty of it all.  The hummingbird coexists with the raven, the chipmunk with the moose, each taking what they need and respectfully leaving enough for the other.  And while I understand that some species are food for another, it makes me wonder why we, as the supposed superior beings, can’t find ways to all live peacefully and in harmony with each other.

Summer is upon us.  We have had a busy church year.  My thanks to the members of the Executive Committee; Steve Montague, Sandy Whyte, Mary Weismiller, Marilyn Allen, Mary Anderson, Doug Coghlin, David Pyper, Eileen Burnes, Julia Rose, Robb Bendus, Jim Kirchin, and Rev. John Anderson for their hard work this year in steering the course and keeping everything running smoothly.  They and their committee members work behind the scenes to ensure that all aspects of our church life flow seamlessly, at least most of the time!

I want to also thank our hardworking staff, for whom nothing is too much trouble.  It has been my experience that no matter what we ask of them, they respond, usually with a smile.  We are fortunate indeed.  I hope that they have a wonderful vacation.  They have certainly earned it.

And to all of you, thank you for your support, your commitment to Wesley, and your hard work on our behalf.  We could do nothing without the countless volunteer hours spent rolling dough, counting collection, teaching church school, singing in the choir, leading a group, making and serving breakfasts, lunches or dinners, pastoral visiting, sending a card, painting, cleaning, gardening, quilting, attending meetings, providing audio visuals, greeting, lectoring (is that a wordJ), and the many other large and small jobs that support the life and work of our vibrant community of faith.  You are each a blessing.

Although we wind down our activities in the summer, please do not forget our hardworking Apple Corps who continue to work each Wednesday and Saturday.  Summer is the busiest time at the market, so if you have an hour or two to spare, please head down to Ainslie kitchen and give them a hand.  The fruits of their labours assist with ongoing expenses and allow us to maintain our building in the excellent condition that it is in.

We have some exciting ideas for next year, so I hope that each of you finds some restorative time to stop and relax, and to return refreshed.  Smell the roses, listen to the birds, watch the sunset, and  appreciate the beauty that surrounds us.

Peace,

Anne Tinker
