TRC Call to Prayer
We thank You for this great nation we live in and for the rich heritage of Aboriginal peoples. We pray not only for new Canadians, but that all Canadians will learn about and respect the Treaty Agreements. May we be a country that respects each other and honours one another. Amen Context: TRC Call to Action #94
Adult Sunday School
September 24 Social Construction of Science – related to postmodernism, but an attack on science and the idea that science is a rational description of reality.
October 1 Hymn Sing
Between now and Advent this year, several of our worship services will focus on the theme "Poets and Prophets." Do you read poetry? Do you have a favorite poet? Is there a poet that you find particularly effective, or offensive(!) as they interact with faith and culture? Talk to Tim Rhymer about these ideas.
There is a sign up sheet on the bulletin board. Our first meeting will be at Wilda’s home on October 16th.
Treasurer’s Report: $5,168 was received in offerings in August. $8,216 is needed each month to meet our 2017 budget.

In His Own Words: How Paul Penner Came to Canada
Just months before Paul Penner passed away in 2013, he was interviewed by a university student about his life in Chortitza, Russia, and his event-filled departure from that Mennonite town in 1941, with a sojourn in Poland and Germany before his arrival in Canada in 1948. We will listen to the audio recording of his story and hear some excerpts from his memoir.
