1,000 Cranes

At Synod last week we had a wonderful service at All Saints Cathedral on Thursday evening.  The cathedral was decorated with a string of cranes that went from the main doors through the cathedral to above the altar and as well across the transept.  Please support The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (http://www.pwrdf.org/) in offering support to the people of Japan during their recent disaster.  Here's an insert from our bulletin that evening (click on the images once or twice to enlarge )

143rd Synod - May 26-28, 2011

Just finished our second day at Synod - we're meeting at the Student Union Building at Dalhousie University.  Since my first time attending Synod in 2009 I've always said every Anglican should attend Synod.  Last evening we had a wonderful service at All Saints Cathedral...

Today we had a full day of conference - starting at 9am and ending at 8pm with time out for meals, etc. At 8pm we ended the day with meditation and music by Ardyth and Jennifer - a time to calm our souls and relax.  Here's the first song they performed... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jH_gt_1yWg4&feature=related
Once I get home i will write more about Synod.

Christian Healing. Sunday May 15th Bulletin.

God heals.  Jesus won the victory over death and sin and sickness and pain when he willingly died on the cross.  Jesus did this out of great love for us and in obedience to His Father whom he loved and respected more than we can imagine.  Scripture tell us that healing is a promise from God.  Christian healing comes from God through believers who pray with and for others.  At the International Order of St. Luke Fredericton Chapter Healing Mission last week Rev Andrew and Janet heard Rev. Jack Sheffield and his wife Anne Marie from Austin Texas talk about "Entering an Atmosphere of Heaven and the Miraculous".  In essence they meant that the healing power of God comes through us when we praise, worship and pray in a faithful way; that God's miraculous healing comes when we are faithful and obedient and believe that the Kingdom of Heaven is here and now.  When we totally give our hearts and minds and spirits to God through praise and prayer we can connect with God and in the Holy Spirit become vessels through which His Heavenly and miraculous healing can take place.  We may need to identify and remove barriers to healing that are in our lives (sin or trauma).  Healing is an ongoing process in our lives.  Since God created all things it is true that doctors, medicine, therapy, exercise and nutrition are all part of how God heals today.  God created us as spiritual beings; God's Heavenly creations living in physical form for a time.  Guess that is why laughter is still the best medicine going!
