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.
To choose as a life partner one who shares your interests and enthusiasms, who makes a good friend as well as a good lover - whose personality and freedom you respect, who shares the belief that marriage is a religious act, and that the love that unites man and woman is part of the great love of God - these are some of the foundation stones of a happy marriage.
