Fingers crossed, let’s hope that spring is finally here.  My poor daffodils have been up and down so many times that they don’t know whether to bloom or not.  Nature is ever resilient and adaptive.  Would they we were the same.

My sincere thanks to everyone who helped with the chicken dinner on Saturday evening.  It was a resounding success, realizing a little over $1,500 in fundraising revenue.  A special thank you to Joan Montague who handled all of the ticket sales and who found the entertainment.  They were awesome.  While it felt good to put my feet up when I got home, we had a lot of fun in the kitchen.

And please plan to attend our next extraordinary fundraiser, this Sunday at 3:00 p.m. when we will host the Waterloo Regional Police Choir.  The concert committee has worked incredibly hard on this event, so spread the word to family and friends.  Tickets are $10 each or $25 for a family.  For an extra $5, you can enjoy homemade apple crisp and a beverage before the concert.

Remember our furry friends by supporting this month’s outreach for the Cambridge and District Humane Society.  They are most in need of:

  • Canned cat and kitten food (high need)
  • Dog and cat toys
  • White paper towels
  • Bleach
  • Fleece pet blankets (from Dollarama)
  • Canned dog and puppy food
  • Dry cat and kitten food
  • Garbage bags, any size

Most of these can be purchased at any dollar store.

There was lots of positive feedback to having coffee and conversation in the sanctuary last Sunday.   And the homemade cookies were an added bonus.  The Hospitality Committee will be continuing this for the month of April.  Another positive outcome of this initiative, is that everyone stayed in the sanctuary to hear the postlude.  Rick always does a bang-up job of this piece of music, often blowing the dust out of the organ pipes in the process.  In my opinion, it is the best part of the service J and sets a positive and stirring tone to go back out into the world.

For the next four weeks, the Hospitality Committee will also be distributing a survey to get your feedback on how to continue to seek ways in which we can become a more vibrant, caring spiritual community where people feel welcomed and, as they choose, connected.  The survey will provide some beginning ideas which the committee hopes will expand as you share your feedback.  It has been gratifying to see more of you stepping up to help where you feel that you can offer something, and the hope is that some of you will be enthused enough about the possibilities to want to help out, even for just one event or activity.   The more of us who embrace the “hospitable spirit”, the better our community will be.  The survey is not meant to create more work for the Hospitality Committee, but as a way to let them know what’s working, and to share your dreams for our church community, and then to run with them. 

As we live out our future, whatever that may be, I hope that we dream big, and that we dream in colour.  Let’s really be a rainbow people.

Peace,

Anne Tinker
