This Sunday Parish Nurse Dot Klein comes to speak about the wonderful and unique call to serve the community through parish nursing. When Dot was a young VON nurse, fresh from graduation, she tended to families in this area and all these years later remembers with fondness 'the hills of headwaters.' We are delighted to welcome, Dot. If you have friends who are caregivers or nurses or are interested in the work of compassionate care in the community, come on out to hear Dot's story. And if you wish to speak to her further, you are welcome to join Dot for lunch after the 11 am service at Trinity, though she will be speaking at both services. If you wish to know more about Parish Nursing, please see the excellent video below.

Thanksgiving service and Communion Celebration this Sunday.
Thanksgiving Message from The Minister, Rev. Dr. Candice Bist, The Fall Newsletter Surrounded by the abundance of October, it is hard to remember that last March the ground was a cold, dark, frozen entity and the trees were without colour or life. If a person had only experienced the grey sky of late winter and the narrow pallet of the winter landscape, how then could they be expected to imagine the richness of the fall harvest or the searingly blue sky behind the yellow leaves of autumn? But that is exactly what we as a community of faith are being asked to do right now: imagine the unimaginable. We are being called to be people of imagination, people who have faith in a future unseen and unknown to us, with only the sure knowledge that God wants only the very best for all people, not just for those who gather within the walls of the church, but for all people. God extends his blessing far and wide and embraces everything and everyone - that is the God we gather to worship each week, the God of the scriptures, and the one that Jesus adored. As we stand surrounded by the extravagant beauty of the season may we remember that all manner of wonderful things are born in darkness and unknowing when we hold fast to a God can can conjure up wonder after wonder, if only we will stay steady and stand and be amazed. “Look at the nations, and see! Be astonished! Be astounded! For a work is being done in your days that you would not believe if you were told.” Habakkuk 1:5 May we continue to stand and be amazed at what God is doing beyond our own poor sight. And be grateful for what we can see.
