FOOD BANK Please remember to bring donations for our food bank hampers. All items collected will be blessed the fourth Sunday of each month and taken to the food banks. Please note that our collection day has been changed. We will have our food bank offering on the 4th Sunday of each month (not necessarily the last). Special Regional Services We share our new incumbent with the parish of St. John the Divine in Salmon Arm. Our incumbent, James Cowan, offers services in ArmstrongEnderby parish on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. He serves in the Salmon Arm parish on the 2nd and 4th Sundays. There are 3 or 4 months that have 5 Sundays each year. A Regional Service or some other form of gathering will take place on 5th Sundays. Other parishes such as St. Mary’s in Sorrento will also be invited. This month, November 30, a regional service will be held at St. John, Salmon Arm beginning at 10:30 am; followed by a Pot Luck lunch. There will be no service in either St. George or St. James this day. In 2015 we will have some regional events in March, May, August and November. The sacred is to be found in one's daily life, in one's neighbours, friends, and family, in one's backyard. - Abraham Maslow Readers for November 23—Reign of Christ 1st Reading: Ezekiel 34. 11-16, 20-24 Ray Bray / Linda Samland 2nd Reading: Ephesians 1. 15-23 Lois Roberts / Ed Clark Matthew 25. 31-46 Gospel: Laura Courtemanche / Betty Stratford Loreen Vancoughnett / Ken Chapman Prayers: Comm.
