Lent Resources

There are lots of Lenten Daily Resources on the web this year, did you catch the email with the list of them? If not, here they are!

The Society of St. John the Evangelist alongside the Anglican Church of Canada has produced a daily online video and prayer booklet resource.  Check it out!  It is free, downloadable and easily sent to your email if you sign up.  Entitled:  Love Life:  Living the Gospel of Love, it is a great daily prayer and reflection tool that will feed you well this Lent.

The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund is providing a Lenten Resource focusing on food.

We have copies of the booklet available at the Cathedral if you would like to pick one up next time you are at church, or you can download it at:

And from the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia a resource with a daily scripture reading and question for reflection and prayer:

Set your clocks AHEAD one hour tonight!

Well, truthfully... if you come an hour late, you will arrive just as we are distributing communion, so you can still sneak in without too much embarrassment. And remember: no matter what time you arrive: ALL are welcome at the table!! Late, early, awkward, shy, bold, noisy, tearful, laughing, hungry, skeptical, uncertain, lost, familiar, old, young, broken, healed, squirmy and twitchy, sleepy or rested....How ever and who ever you are - you are welcome at Christ's table.
