Prayer: God of our past, reconcile our brokenness.
God of our future, renew our faith.
God of the present moment, reach out and touch us, and through us, the lives of all we meet on our daily journey.
May we be made whole through the holiness of God the Father, the humanity of Christ the Son, and the healing power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. (a prayer written by Ruth Bowen and printed in the Iona Community’s Bare Feet and Buttercups.)

Things are getting busy in the Valley again! There is the Chateauguay Valley Antique Association the weekend, as well as Alyson Champ’s show Marginal Lands in Ormstown at 65 Saint Paul Street (as well as at the Town Hall in Tres Saint Sacrement on October 1st and 2nd). In two weeks there is the Havelock Fair (for 2 days this time) and the OHO Quilt Show the following week. We have a lot to look forward to!
Please keep in mind the fundraising concert that will be held in Howick United Church Saturday, October 15th. There will be a planning meeting for this concert held on Wednesday, September 7th at 7pm in the church. All welcome to attend.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Greig family this week, as we have heard the news of the sudden death of Cathy Greig’s husband Al Freeman this past week. We also hold in our thoughts and prayers the family and friends of Margaret Robertson who died this past week.
