A note from Janet -
A friend pointed out this Day of Reflection on the Psalms by Fr. Kennific:
Sat Feb 1, 2014 - 10 am to 3 pm at the Martha Spirituality Centre at SDU Place, 45 Great George Street Charlottetown. It is advertised in the Jan 24th Journal Pioneer.
Fr. Kennific describes his theme this way: "The psalms are prayer-poems composed by ordinary people who caught glimpses of God in the ups and downs of their lives. Three thousand years later they continue to touch human hearts with the beauty, honesty, and relevance of their words."
Perhaps some of you may be interested in going. If so, call 367-3103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. to register. Cost is $30 at the door. Please take a brown bag lunch.
Sounds very interesting!

Image cf. www.epiphanyofthelord.comEpiphany: In Western Christian tradition January 6th is celebrated as the Epiphany. It is the climax of the Advent/Christmas season and the Twelve Days of Christmas. “The term epiphany means "to show" or "to make known" or even "to reveal." In Western churches, it remembers the coming of the wise men bringing gifts to visit the Christ child, who by so doing "reveal" Jesus to the world as Lord and King.” The importance of Epiphany is that God revealed himself and his love to the world through Jesus, the divine Son. In the Anglican Church tradition the season of Epiphany goes from January 6th to Ash Wednesday which begins the season of Lent.
