February 13, Pancake Tuesday
A large group of people gathered in the Lower Hall from 5 to 6:30 pm to enjoy pancakes, ham, fruit, and conversation, and a chance mark the end of the Season after the Epiphany. This year, Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent, was on February 14. So our church honoured the tradition of Mardi Gras/Carnival/Pancake and Shrove Tuesday with a sweet feast on the evening before the 14th. Thanks to members of the Collective Kitchen and Heavenly Hospitality for organizing and preparing this dinner.
January 27, Mill Woods Resource Fair
Dave Elliot and Ian Kellogg staffed an information table about the church at the Mill Woods Resource Fair, which was hosted by MLA Christina Gray at the Mill Woods Seniors Centre. We distributed flyers about our many programs and chatted with interested people.
January 20, “From TIFF to Cannes”
About 30 people attended a screening of “The Post” at South Edmonton Common and then repaired to the McPhee’s house for savoury and sweet snacks and conversation. Thanks to Rob and Jennifer for another successful social event.
January 18, “Hot Topics” #4
Six of us gathered in the Lounge to watch two short excerpts from Michael Moore’s 2015 film “Where to Invade Next.” The first examines Portugal’s experience with decriminalizing all recreational drugs since 2000. The second is about the liberal prison system in Norway. We enjoyed a lively discussion about both topics.
