It looks as though we may be moving into some winter weather soon. We have been spoiled so far, but I know that we will need the moisture that snow brings. I hope everyone has had an opportunity to breathe fresh air so that it won’t be quite so difficult having to hunker down inside for a bit.
We began moving through the stories of Jesus’ ministry last week, and this week we will take a slightly different but very relevant turn. We are going to reflect on the call of Samuel, who became a willing and devoted follower of God in the midst of a lackluster period of faith. Samuel re-introduced a much-needed spark although as usual not everyone appreciated his enthusiasm. Hmm, needing a spark? Does that sound familiar as we continue to live in this altered reality called a Pandemic? Where can we find something in our faith that gives us a spark, a new perspective or a sense of optimism? We will do some reflecting on this on Sunday during our Zoom service. Please join us at 10:30 and feel free to invite friends who may not live near you. At a virtual gathering of ministry personnel yesterday we were comparing notes on how wonderful it is that people could join our service from all over. One positive in the midst of a gloomy time.
Stay safe everyone.

We would like to remind our Zoom attendees to please mute your microphones during the service so as to reduce background noise (you are, of course, free to un-mute your microphone if you are reading or leading a prayer, or asking/answering a question). If you cannot mute your microphone, than we ask that you please be very quiet during the service. We also ask that, when conversing, you speak slowly and try to avoid talking over anyone else.
OFFICIAL BOARD MEETING: Official Board will meet virtually on Monday, January 18th at 7:00 pm. The link was in the email reminder, however please contact Jon Blois if you do not have it.

ALZHEIMERS MONTH: January is Alzheimers month. Many of us have been touched by or are living right now with someone we love suffering from this disease. I have several resources I received from the Saskatchewan Alzheimers Society whose offices were in Oliver Lodge where I served. If you are interested in seeing some of these, let me know and we can arrange a safe ‘hand-off’.
BROADVIEW RENEWAL TIME: It is Broadview renewal time once again!! Please stay tuned for more info as we figure out the best way to do this safely. If you are interested in renewing it would be helpful if you could contact Susan Oleskiw via email or phone so she can begin assembling a list.
