Dear friends
This newsletter is going out a few days early because we have had to move pub night to Thursday, August 1st.  Same time (7 - 9 pm) same place (Barracks Room on East Side of Wild Rose Brew Pub).   Please come out for an informal time to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.  
I am away for most of the month of August but leave you in the capable hands of Carolyn and Natasha Brubaker.     Please be in touch with Carolyn for pastoral needs that may arise during the month.  
Looking towards the fall in October John Pentland, Don McLeod and I will be leading a three-week book study of Brian McLaren's The Great Spiritual Migration.  Brian is our Nov 1 - 3 Wisdom Centre guest and this is a great book to introduce you to Brian and some of his thoughts about the spiritual, theological and missional shifts we are living through.  I'd encourage you to give the book a read over the next couple of months and join us for the study which will take place at St. Laurence Wednesday evenings October 9, 16 and 23 at 7 pm at St. Laurence.     
More infomation about the November event with Brian is here.  We have already sold 2/3 of the Saturday tickets so if you plan to join us register soon either online or with Kelly in the office.  
With every blessing,
