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

Thought for the Day
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have
chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has
its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you
are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
—Desmond Tutu
