Join us this Sunday 12noon at the White Rock

This Sunday October 25th at 12noon, we are having a water baptism at the actual White Rock, just east of the famous White Rock Pier. We are doing this in conjunction with our good friend Meri Crouley who is prophetically involved in seven baptismal services up and down the West Coast, culminating in White Rock, Greater Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Because of USA/Canada border restrictions, Meri Crouley will be across the Semiahmoo Bay at the Semiahmoo Spit Beach, connected by FaceTime.
If you would like to profess your faith in Jesus through water baptism, you are invited to be baptized this Sunday. Either way, please join us for a great outdoor celebration this Sunday 12noon at the historic White Rock. Please spread the word. See you there.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thankfulness is the secret to a happy and fulfilled life.
October in Canada is that special time of year when farmers harvest their crops of corn, pumpkins, squash, and winter potatoes. Nowadays in our high-tech urbanized world we forget where our food comes from. In the old days, farmers waited anxiously for a good harvest, knowing that their very future depended on it. Crop failure could mean poverty or even starvation. Much of our early immigration consisted of the victims of European famines, such as the Irish potato famines. There was no Government welfare in those days to buffer a bad crop. As a result, a good crop in the Fall brought heartfelt thanksgiving.

The farmers felt so grateful that they would take part of their crop and rush into the nearest church to give thanks to the Lord of the Harvest. To celebrate a successful wheat harvest, the grain would be ground into fine flour, made into bread and eaten at the communion service. Children, in particular, enjoy seeing the fruit, flowers and vegetables decorating the church. The whole emphasis of the Harvest Thanksgiving weekend is to say “Thank you, Thank you, Thank you”. The very word “Eucharist” in the Christian Communion Service means “Thank You”.

Thankfulness is the secret to a happy and fulfilled life.

It is so easy to complain; so, easy to become bitter; so easy to become cynical about life. The best antidote for cynicism is thanksgiving. Instead of grumbling about your spouse, try thanking God for them. Instead of complaining about your work, try thanking God that you have a job. Instead of resenting your children when they’re noisy, thank God that they are alive and well.
(This is Thanksgiving Weekend in Canada. Happy Thanksgiving to our brothers and sisters in Canada.)

This week’s encouragement is from Brother Ed Hird, local director of the British Columbia Christian Ashram.
