One of the blessings of the past week has been seeing the amount of items that came in for those who are assisted by the ministries of Holy Trinity, Eaton Square and the Toronto Urban Native Mission.
The ideal would be a society where no-one is homeless or hungry. The reality is that the hungry and homeless are always with us, and loving our neighbour means that we must care for their needs.
Thank you for your constant kindness and generosity.
This season of Thanksgiving is one where we are reminded to be grateful for all God's gifts, from the stunning pictures of the Aurora Borealis that have been shared throughout Canada this week to the cheeky chipmunks that dart through our gardens, from the joy of seeing a small grandchild to a phone call from an old friend.
To bless and be blessed is our daily walk with Jesus. I give thanks for all of you, for this wonderful community.
May we each wake up and start the day with the words of Psalm 118:24 in our hearts.
"This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it."
