I hope that each of you has had an opportunity to enjoy this summer-like weather.  Our birds are coming back in bunches.  I heard a Baltimore Oriole calling this morning, so hurried to make some sugar water for the hummingbird feeder and got it hung out back for them.  Two male Rose Breasted grosbeaks were at one of our feeders, and a Great Crested Flycatcher was sitting in one of our maple trees, calling.  I also saw my first Bobolink of the season on one of the side roads, and a huge snapping turtle came out of the pond to lay her eggs.  Nature is once again in renewal.

This is just a short note to highlight our May outreach, which is the YWCA Girls’ Programs.  There is a great selection of Girls' Programs at "The W" and the YWCA is super proud of the amazing and welcoming environment the girls have created.  All programming is free, to girls between the ages of 8 and 18, and includes programs on wellness, healthy relationships, social action, mentorship, safety, and science, tech, math and engineering.  These programs would love donations of:

-          Canvas

-          Acrylic paint

-          Paint brushes

-          Paper plates

-          Plastic utensils

-          Embellishments (glitter, rhinestones, etc.)

-          Sharpies

-          Journals

-          Scrapbook paper

-          White glue

-          Glue sticks

-          Glue gun sticks

-          Construction paper

-          New mason jars

All of these items can be found at Dollarama.

I am still working on planning a presentation on Supervised Injection Sites.  It will likely happen at the end of May or early June.  All of the downtown churches will be invited to attend.  I will keep you posted.

We sent Michelle Hogan on her pilgrimage with our prayers for her safe travel.  Michelle leaves Friday for Paris and the start of the Camino de Santiago, an 800 kilometre pilgrimage to the shrine of the apostle Saint James.  Michelle will be checking in with us periodically, and we will keep you updated on her progress.

And finally, how fortunate are we to have so many talented worship leaders among us.  On Sunday morning, Rev. Roy Holton filled in for Rev. Jenny Stephens, who was unwell.  That in itself is not newsworthy, but Roy stepped into the pulpit on three hours’ notice.  He told us that we were getting a ‘Tuesday morning sermon’; one that had not been edited or polished.  It was a powerful message.  Thank you Roy.

Peace,

Anne Tinker
