November 11 – Remembrance Day. This year more Canadians took the time to remember and participate than in many years. It was the first co-ed night for Cadets Hawks (boys in grades 7 & 8) and GEMS 2.0 (girls in grades 7 & 8).
An exceptionally large number of people turned out for the Remembrance Day ceremonies in Bowmanville. It wasn’t because of the good weather, although that helped. It was because of the recent deaths of Canadian soldiers on Canadian soil.
I believe that the only thing that can keep a church from being too big to feel a sense of belonging is small groups. That’s why I hope that you will join one of the sermon based discussion groups for our November series about “True Joy.”
