eNews for May 11 (click here to read more)

This weekend, we remember our mothers and those who have had a mothering influence in our lives.  How true is the quote from Proverbs:  “A man’s work is from sun to sun, but a mother’s work is never done.”  We offer special prayers this week in thanksgiving!

We are in the middle of the Church season of Easter, when we focus on the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, and its impact upon the early Christians as well as its impact upon us, modern day believers.   I came across the following list of 10 Ways to RE-Joice in the Resurrection.  It serves as a good reminder of some of the important things of our Christian faith…
 

 “10 Ways to RE-Joice in the RE-surrection”:

RE-Joice… He is Risen… Indeed!

RE-Fresh… your body by sound sleep and good eats!

RE-New… acquaintances and habits of health and hope!

RE-Deemed… Know that you are loved forever by the Lord!

RE-View… your past lumps and bumps… and know you’re forgiven!

RE-Late… Talk, and listen closely, to those around you!

RE-Store… “unto me a clean heart, O God.” (Psalm 51:10)

RE-Vive… your faith through the Word and Sacraments!

RE-Focus… on all the great gifts the Lord has given you!

RE-Member… those special people around you!

How many more can you add?

And a reminder of the wonderful choir concert which will be held here at St. David’s this coming Saturday, May 13.

Update on the Elevator Fundraising

We have passed the $60,000 mark!  Thank you to all who have contributed to the Elevator Fund. We don’t have far to go! Please remember this important fundraiser.

**the Board is reminded that their meeting will be on Tuesday May 30 this month.

 Why not do something special this Mother’s Day.  In the Lounge after church there is a petition for the Canadian government to increase funding for education programs for women in Africa.  What better way to honour mother? 

 Come out and join us for a wonderful Spring Walk!

We will be walking to Dundarave, West Vancouver. Light lunch at the Red Lion Restaurant.

Bring your friends, relatives, furry companions
