THANK YOU A special thank you to everyone who made our online Easter Worship possible over the past week. A special thanks to Richard Hansen for all his work and preparation of music to lift our spirits in these difficult days. Wishing everyone in our parish, and beyond, peace and blessings this Eastertide and the joy of the Resurrection in our daily living. Amen. EASTER WEEK Mike will be unavailable during the week following Easter. Please contact Peter Davison in case of pastoral emergency. For all other matters please contact a warden or leave a message with the Parish Office. POETRY READING On Sunday 18th April we are pleased to host a special poetry reading by poet and author gloria fern via Zoom in aid of St. James. Tickets are $10 and you can book a ticket online via our website and pay online via e-transfer or credit card or by cheque payable to St James Church. Please note on your cheque or online payment that it is for the poetry reading. Ticket holders will receive a ZOOM link the week before the event. ZOOM COFFEE HOUR Back in a previous millennium, a very funny comedian had a skit called “The Morning After the Night Before”. The week after Easter is contextually much the same for a parish priest….so, we will let Canon Mike have a quiet week and meet on Thursday over coffee to talk about … our vaccinations [or lack thereof], who will win the Masters Golf Tournament, the coming of spring … and of course … Mike. Join us using the following ZOOM coordinates NOTE THAT THIS IS A DIFFERENT ZOOM CONNECTION THAN FOR PREVIOUS MEETINGS. https://zoom.us/j/99538422406?pwd=aEpjUWpBTGxsd25jZXVxL29RNUVDQT09 Meeting ID: 995 3842 2406 Passcode: 294357 READING THE BIBLE: For those who wish to keep a pattern of daily Bible readings and reflections, the Bible readings for this coming week are below.
