We were at Point Pelee National Park last week for the annual ‘Festival of Birds’ to celebrate the spring migration.  And although the weather was not as cooperative as it could have been, we saw 104 species of birds.  We were fortunate to see my two personal favourites, red headed woodpeckers and scarlet tanagers.  I am always amazed by the vibrant colours.  Even the drabbest sparrow is beautiful when you stop to look at the intricacy and detail of their feathers.   There is a lesson there for us.

A huge thank you to everyone who purchased Easter chocolates.  Our children and youth donated the profits from those sweet treats and they were designated to replace our current light bulbs with more energy efficient LED’s.  All of the lights in the WoHeLo room have been retrofitted.  Our Property Committee is working with Cambridge Hydro on a program to replace most of the lights in the church building.  There are some incentives available and, over the course of the next couple of years, we hope to be able to reduce our hydro consumption considerably.

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and Rev. Dr. Jenny Stephens will be leading worship.  There will also be a baptism, which is especially nice.  After worship you are invited to share in a piece of cake to celebrate Garth and Marilyn James’ time with us here at Wesley as they embark on the next stage of their journey, moving to London to be closer to family.  Both Garth and Marilyn have been greatly involved at Wesley and they will be sorely missed.  Please plan on staying, if even for a short time, to offer your good wishes.

Our monthly seniors lunch is next Thursday, May 18, at noon in Ainslie Hall.  The menu is still being drafted, but it will no doubt be delicious.  Hope to see you there.

You may have read a recent article in the Cambridge Times about some of our local social agencies being stretched to the limit.  The Bridges has had an average of 100 people staying overnight for months.  Lack of affordable, safe housing has put a great strain on their resources.  To keep things simple, for the month of May, I am suggesting that we collect toilet paper; an item that is always needed.  Let’s see if we can build a mountain of toilet paper to help them!

The good news of Wesley is that we are a family who share each other’s sorrows as well as celebrations.  I want to sincerely thank everyone for their prayers, cards, kind words, and support following my mother’s death two weeks ago.  Our family is truly grateful.  I am humbled to be a part of such a loving community.
