Happy Canada Day and Happy Elise Day
Happy Canada Day everyone– we have so much to be grateful for to be living in this beautiful country. To be sure as a nation, we have a past that has not always been noble, or fair to all of it’s citizens or those who sought to be full citizens. And – we are the Canadians of today who can help ensure that the future is fair, that reconciliation happens, that justice and peace walk hand in hand. That indeed is reason to celebrate.
Jim and I will be in Sicamous to celebrate Canada Day and to take part in the `Show and Shine’ so we hope to see you around town.
I invite you to continue the celebration on Sunday morning, July 2nd as we welcome Elise Margaret Smith as our newest member of Sicamous United Church through baptism. Elise will be just shy of 2 months old. We will postpone communion until the 9th, but expect to find some maple-glazed Tim Horton donuts to go with your coffee after worship 🙂
blessings to all, with gratitude for our country and our congregation.
