For your leading and loving, for your teaching and caring, for your changing love at work in all of us, thank you! In your love you hold all creation. In your hope, you give new life. In your peace, you begin again! So for the year gone by, for the year to come, and for this moment right now, we declare, Alleluia! Alleluia! Thank you Holy God! Amen.

In the past couple of weeks we have held a couple of drive-in services in Ormstown and Howick. I want to thank those who attended and those who helped get them going, including Mark and George Barrington who helped me find the equipment we needed as well as Gordon Furey for helping me set it up. For those who attended, if you have any feedback, I would be happy to hear it, and if you would like another held, I would be happy to plan it. Please let me or a Session member know. Barbara
