Although Meeting for Worship for Business is held on the second Sunday of each month for most of the year, we usually skip August. That's the case again this year. In addition, we will have the September Meeting for Worship for Business on September 15th--note that's the third Sunday in September.
There will be an event at the Meeting House to mark Hiroshima Day. At 6 pm there will be lantern decorating. At 7pm there will be a formal programme honouring the victims of Hiroshima and our Friend Murray Thompson who was converted to activism as a direct consequence of the bombing of Hiroshima. At 8 pm we will walk to the canal to float laterns. All are welcome.
We are very happy that the Syrian family of 6 we are sponsoring arrived safely in late May and that the settling in is going well. They have moved into a row house that is now fully furnished. The many forms and applications that are required for municipal, provincial and federal programs and services are either completed or well underway. The children are registered for school in September and the parents have begun English classes. A delicious welcome lunch was enjoyed on Saturday July 13th. We are all relieved and happy that they are here and we are getting to know each other.
And all Friends take heed of jars and strife, for that is it, which will eat out the Seed in you; therefore let not that harbour in your bosoms, lest it eat out the good in you, and ye come to suffer in your own particulars. Therefore dwell in love and life, and in the Power and Seed of God, which is the honourable, royal state.
