One day Jesus was asked what religion and by implication what life itself is all about. He responded with the words of what we call the Great Commandment: we are to love God and our neighbours as much as we love ourselves, love simply meaning that we treat others as we ourselves wish to be treated.
We are now experiencing what is for most of us an unprecedented crisis and in these circumstances love of neighbour means limiting contact to try and stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus. For this reason there will not be worship services until further notice. Even so, just as love necessitates the halt of Sunday worship, love also means that the ministry of the church continues through such as prayer, phone calls and keeping tabs on people and especially the most vulnerable and at risk of our society.
Boston’s 200th Anniversary Celebration Dinner at Granite Ridge has now been rescheduled for Saturday, August 15th.
Tickets cost $50 each and are available from Donna Parsons (905-854-2362) or Audrey Peddie (905-878-3749).
The Choir has officially released their CD, “A Gift of Song”, in celebration of next year’s 200th Anniversary of the congregation. If you are interested in obtaining a copy of the CD, please speak to a member of the choir. A donation towards the expense of making the CD would be most welcome.
For those who are interested, copies of the national church’s newspaper, Presbyterian Connection, are available at the back of the church.
At the end of last year the “Presbyterian Record” ceased to publish. In its place the National Church will be printing a “newspaper” four times a year; this will be print only. If you are interested in receiving the newspaper you may subscribe for it yourself on the National Church’s website (www.presbyterian.ca).
So far this year we have raised $7454 of the $8000 we committed ourselves to giving to Presbyterians Sharing. At this point last year we had raised $5622.
