“Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance.”

Isaac Newton

 

 

Enjoying the heat?  What I can’t understand is how you can mow the lawn and, by the end of the day, you have dandelion clocks standing a foot off the ground.  I suppose this, too, “did not happen by chance.” 

 

It’s Bible Study day today with the Ladies Bible Study poised and ready to roll tomorrow (Thursday, May 28th)  And Rev. Adam invites you all for a virtual coffee at Friday’s Coffee Lounge.  Shoot us a quick email if you’re not being sent the links to connect and we’ll send you the password.  I’m tempted to say, “knock three times and ask for The Godmother,” but I won’t. 

 

Gotta tell ya’ – I got that mobster name from the Gangster mob name generator at themobmuseum.org by entering “Gathering Place” as my actual name.  Spooky or what?

 

It’s time again for The Leader’s “Readers Choice” Awards and The Gathering Place has been nominated!  Woot!  Want to vote?  You have until June 14th to get it done here:   https://www.niagarathisweek.com/readerschoice-portcolborne/categories/professional-services/subcategories/church-temple  I’d say, “Voter Early & Vote Often” in the grand Tammany Hall tradition (am I showing my age?) but that seems to be discouraged.  For some reason. 

 

And just to show that we are, indeed, worth a vote of confidence, remember that we need helpers for  Out of the Cold (it’s now a take-out service) on June 9th or 16th.  Get in touch with the Beverlys if you can help:  905-894-0484  or  lbeverly@cogeco.ca  or sbeverly@cogeco.ca 

 

The way things are going, “Out of the Cold” might do better with a summer name.  “Pick Up Some Luv”?  Maybe not.  Send your improvements!

 

Meanwhile, elsewhere …

 

Do remember the Baby Bottle Bank Campaign South Niagara Life Ministries is back! SNLM joins the Christian communities taking to the internet to carry on its good work.  You can show your support at https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/48625  Or get in touch with The GP and I’ll get you a print version of their donation info. 

 

 

So – Ladies’ Bible Study tomorrow, Friday Coffee Lounge, Sunday Service…  Who has time to be bored? 

 

Keep safe, keep well, don’t get sun burn, and God bless!

 

“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

Henry David Thoreau
