Anglican Church of Canada

 St. James Anglican Church

 

 Thought for the week

Christ has no body but yours,

No hands, no feet on earth but yours,

Yours are the eyes with which he looks

Compassion on this world,

Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,

Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.

Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,

Yours are the eyes, you are his body.

Christ has no body now but yours,

No hands, no feet on earth but yours,

Yours are the eyes with which he looks

Compassion on this world.

Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
 

— St Teresa of Avila

Many Hands Working Together: This past Tuesday, St. James hosted the 11th Annual Ecumenical Prayer Shawl Gathering in our Church, Butterfly Hall and Garden. This was the first gathering hosted outside of the Kitchener/Waterloo Region and huge undertaking for our parish. On Wednesday, we received the following email from one of the attendees. "Congratulations and a big Thank You for an excellent gathering of the Prayer Shawl Groups you and your fellow parishioners conducted yesterday! It was a well planned event and everything was well done. The food, reception of guests, the guest speaker and the Meditation was exceptional and everyone was impressed. Thank you again. Continue the good work of providing for the needy!" What more needs to be said, except thank you, thank you, thank you for the many hands that helped make this event a grand success. Anne Warner


Coffee Shop Bible Study: Our Monday morning bible study is stopping for the summer. See you again in September.


Call to Action/Lunch and Learn: Sunday, June 16th following the 10:30 am service. We will be watching the second episode of the excellent TVO production, "First Contact". This three-part series takes a group of six non-Indigenous Canadians (three men, three women) with strong opinions on Indigenous People and immerses them in Aboriginal Canada for the first time. Everyone is welcome to come, watch the video to be followed by discussion/reaction/opinions to the content of the film. Please sign your name to the sheet at the back of the church if you plan to attend (numbers for lunch).


Living Faith Study Group will meet on Wednesday, June 19th in the Witcher Room at 2:30 pm to study Jeremiah Chapters 4:5-6:30 where, with increasing sorrow, the prophet details how thoroughly God has been abandoned both nationally and by individuals and foretells dire consequences. All are welcome. 


We have 3 new Lay Readers at St. James! On Tuesday, June 18th at 7 pm, Tammy Rutherford, Joyce Sweeney, and Philip Chester will be installed and Dean Dunbar and Barbara Clunes will recommit themselves to this ministry. All are invited to this celebration at Church of the Apostles, 86 Glasgow Street North in Guelph. A wine and cheese reception will follow. Come celebrate and support these leaders in our community!


Morning Prayer: Wednesday at 10 am. All are welcome.


Women's Community Lunch: Every Wednesday at 12 noon in our Butterfly Hall. Free and Fun! Our building is fully accessible.


Book Club: Our final selection before the summer is "Educated, A Memoir" by Tara Westover. This is the story of a young girl, born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho trying to find her place in the world, without losing her connection to her family or her beloved home. We will meet on Wednesday, June 19th, 1:30 pm at the home of Anne Warner. All are welcome to join our discussion.


Wednesday, June 19th the film "Doctrine of Discovery: Stolen Lands, Strong Hearts" will be shown at 7 pm at the Cathedral in Hamilton. If anyone is interested in attending and travelling by bus please sign the sheet at the back of the church. The church will pay bus fare but you are welcome to make your own donations to St James.


Next week, Sunday 23rd, we will celebrate our first Outdoor Service. It is the anniversary of Rev’d Ann’s priesting and a chance to enjoy worship in our beautiful Butterfly Garden!

St. James moves to summer hours on Sunday, July 7th when we begin one service at 9:30 am each Sunday. This will remain in place up to and including Sunday, September 1st.


Vacation Bible School will be held at St James in July. For arts and crafts, the following items are required: tin foil pie plates, artificial greenery, empty soup cans (no sharp edges) and wide rubber bands (as found on bunches of broccoli). Please leave contributions in the VBS basket in the narthex.


Gift Cards are ordered the first Sunday of the month. Thank you to those who are continuing to use the gift cards and to those who are new supporters. Profit for the first six months of 2019 is $928.58. Again in June our order was $400.00 under $5000.00 and as such, we needed to pay $10.00 shipping. If anyone wants more information about this fundraiser, please see Linda Webster. Next order date is Sunday, July 7th. 


Centre Wellington Food Bank needs canned juice. Please leave donations in the baskets in the narthex. Thank you for your continued support.
