THE DEACON’S CUPBOARD IS RUNNING ONCE AGAIN
The Deacon’s Cupboard will be collecting winter coats this fall. They will be given to their clients that are in need of warm outer wear next winter. There is a special need for children's outerwear. I am sharing this information hoping over the summer you might ask neighbours and family if they have coats to donate. We will be collecting them in October. Please check all donations to be sure they are clean and in good repair. This notice gives you time to wash or dry clean them. Thanks, in advance for sharing the warmth and caring we have at Erin Mills United Church with those in our area that need warmth this coming winter.
MY YEAR OF LIVING SPIRITUALLY
An award-winning writer for
magazine (formerly the
United Church Observer
) has a new memoir out this fall that explores her experimental year of sampling more than 20 spiritual practices and also documents her journey away from fundamentalism to becoming "spiritual-but-not-religious."
My Year of Living Spiritually—From Woo-Woo to Wonderful: One Woman's Secular Quest for a More Soulful Life,
will be published in October by Douglas & McIntyre.
Anne Bokma, a longtime
feature writer, wrote the magazine's "Spiritual But Secular" column for four years, which led to a yearlong blog called "My Year of Living Spiritually," now turned into a book.
