Archbishop and Primate Linda Nicholls and National Indigenous Anglican Archbishop Mark MacDonald will host A Vigil for British Columbia. The vigil will be an online national prayer service to lift up all those who have been impacted by the devastating floods experienced recently in the province. Bishops of the Ecclesiastical Province of British Columbia and Yukon released a joint statement yesterday, noting that many “are still living in urgent situations following the extreme rainfall these past few days, stranded, evacuated from their homes, living without power”.

Bishop's Lenten Books for 2021

0806651288h.jpg

This year, Bishop Susan Bell has chosen to recommend two books for Lent: Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting by Holly Whitcomb and The Way of St. Benedict by Archbishop Rowan Williams. 

 

A source of inspiration for the bishop’s most recent charge to synod, Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting is well suited to a time of pandemic, especially during the season of Lent. This book presents seven spiritual gifts that waiting can teach us: patience, loss of control, live in the present, compassion, gratitude, humility, and trust in God.

 

The latest work by Archbishop Rowan Williams, is being recommended for individual study as a way growing in one’s faith and discipleship. The Way of St Benedict explores the appeal of St. Benedict's sixth-century Rule and shows it to be a document of great relevance to contemporary Christians and non-believers alike. The book speaks to the Rule's ability to help anyone live more fully in harmony with others while orienting themselves fully to the will of God.

 

Both books are readily available through online book suppliers at an affordable price.

There are plenty of ways to bring nature home to our neighbourhood.

 

The Butterflyway Project began in five Canadian cities in 2017. A team of volunteer Butterflyway Rangers in each of those cities had a mission - to plant native wildflowers in yards, schoolyards, streets and parks to support bees and butterflies. The goal was to establish local “Butterflyways” by planting at least a dozen pollinator patches in each neighbourhood.

In 2019, the Norval Community Association created a Butterfly garden in McNab Park and in May, 2020 St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Norval was invited to participate in the project as well.  Our Butterflyway Rangers have helped to create and plant butterfly gardens at the north side of St. Paul’s. 

 

This project has been a tremendous success and not only does it help our ecological system, but it also shows that a small group of residents can make a large impact.  Our communities are greener and healthier.  Opportunities are created and people are connected and working toward a common goal. 

 

St. Paul’s is proud and grateful to all of the Butterflyway Rangers and their hard work, time and effort in making this project a success.
