As I now sit at my desk, extracts of a prayer by John Baillie comes to mind and heart …

O you in whose boundless being are laid up all treasures of wisdom and truth and holiness, 
grant that through constant fellowship with you
the true graces of Christian character may more and more take shape within my soul:
the grace of a thankful and uncomplaining heart:
the grace to await your leisure patiently and to answer your call promptly;
the grace of courage, whether in suffering or in danger;
the grace of boldness in standing for what is right;
the grace to treat others as I would have others treat me;
the grace of charity, that I may refrain from hasty judgement;
the grace of silence, that I may refrain from hasty speech;
the grace of forgiveness towards all who have wronged me;
the grace of tenderness towards all who are weaker than myself;
the grace of steadfast in continuing to desire that you will do as now I pray.


This Sunday the focus is upon the extravagant grace of God known in Jesus Christ, the foundation for ‘grace-filled’ lives. All welcome! The intersection of Princess and Clergy is closed, but the accessible door along Princess remains open, and there remains free parking in the public lot just behind the church off Queen Street and along neighbouring streets. A supervised nursery is offered for infants during the service if desired, and the children are being treated to a treasure hunt during the service. The Rev. Cheryl Horne will be leading us in worship – our Minister will be preaching at the Anniversary Sunday service of Sand Hill Presbyterian Church. Your presence would be our blessing! Have a look at the Order of Service and the announcements …
