1611-2011 =400th Anniversary of the King James Bible

On Sunday afternoon I listened to CBC Radio's Tapestry Program - Mary Hynes talked to Gordon Campbell about his new book about the history of the King James Version of the Bible.  Here's a link to the show: http://www.cbc.ca/tapestry/  You can listen to the show here: http://www.cbc.ca/video/news/audioplayer.html?clipid=2141564138
September 25th, 2011  This week, host Mary Hynes celebrates the spoken word.

We'll hear about a world-wide birthday party, as the King James Version of the Bible turns 400. Mary talks with Renaissance scholar Gordon Campbell, author of Bible; The Story of the King James Version, 1611- 2011, who explains that the KJV's power, comes from the fact that it was the first Bible designed to be read out loud.

Around the world, there are lectures, seminars, musical events and celebrations underway, to mark the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible.   For more details visit these websites:

This week in Victoria, B.C., there's a "Biblethon" - which will result in a complete, continuous reading of the KJV from cover to cover. Find out more from The Christ Church Cathedral website.

St. Luke's Hall Reno Progress 5

The St. Luke's Hall renovations are nearly finished - the kitchen is in and a bit of painting, etc. is left to do.  Note the new entry verandah in the front corner of the Hall.
Adjacent to the Hall is St. Luke's Anglican Church - work on the tower and entrance is nearly complete as well.  The church was built in the late 1880's and consecrated the same day as Holy Trinity Alma Anglican Church in October 1890.

Back to Church Sunday at St. Peter's Alberton

We had a great service at St. Peter's yesterday morning - there were familiar and new faces.
Sorry for the fuzzy photos.
 Following the service we had fellowship in the Hall - a time we all enjoy!
