Church @ Church at All Saints
The Second Sunday of Advent
4th December 2022.

This Sunday was the second Sunday of Advent. In anticipation of the coming of the Christ, we lighted our Advent candles. This week, I continued my series on “Spiritual Friendship” based on the book by Aelred of Rievaulx. I’m also excited to welcome Leanne Anthony to the All Saints team. Leanne has taken over from David Wiens, who has served us for many years by sending out these emails and keeping our Contact List updated. We welcomed Leanne as the new “Keeper Of The List.”
This Sunday we’re had our All Saints Community Lunch and Christmas Party after the service.
In case you missed it, you can find the service from last week by clicking HERE.

If you have any further questions, or need help in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me.
Thank you Church.
Stay vigilant and prayerful.
Love each other deeply and keep Jesus at the very centre of everything you do.
Blessings on all you do.
The peace of our Lord,
Peter Klenner

My wife Janice and I have three sons James, Mark, and Andrew. I was Past President and Chaplain for Alpha Canada. While serving as the National Chair for Anglican Renewal Ministries of Canada, I was one of three co-signers of the Montreal Declaration of Anglican Essentials For the past 31 years, I have been privileged to write over 500 articles as a columnist on spiritual issues for local North Vancouver newspapers. In the last number of years, I have had the opportunity to speak at conferences and retreats in Honduras, Rwanda, Uganda, Washington State, BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland, and Ontario.
