Rev. Richard's children's talk was about going back to school and peer relationships. The adult message was “What Does it Take” to be a Christian. The answer was to love unconditionally.
Stuart's piano offertory was lovely.
Pauline Reed spoke of “Equipping a Child for School” in India, where the caste system discriminates against the poorest people, resulting in continual school drop-out rates increasing. The Human Rights and Research Foundation is supported by Mission and Service funds, and has supported 300 girls and 218 boys of India's needy children, with school supplies. Canada's Indigenous children are in need of better schooling and living conditions through government aid, more M & S support, individual gifts, etc. The Bay of Quinte Conference has put out a request, a challenge to any and all individuals to save and collect their toonies, from now until October 15th, for M & S (Mission and Service), making it a part of your day's offering on October 15th.
