Here we are at the end of July already! I ask again: How did that happen? The summer is just going by too quickly.
Meanwhile, there are still important events and dates for me to remind you about at least one more time.
A Taste of Samish Online Reunion: The most imminent event to be aware of RIGHT NOW is the “Taste of Samish Online Reunion” that gets underway on Thursday, July 29. First up at 8 a.m. Pacific time is a Meditation opportunity with Vickie MacArthur, followed by “Morning Gathering” with Kat Goheen at 10 a.m. and a discussion session with Apostle Janné Grover at 11 a.m. For full details see the event announcement here and the full schedule there. (Yes – those two words are links.) There is a Zoom link for all sessions of the reunion that has been circulated to everyone who registered by Wednesday evening. If you have registered, but did not receive your link, please contact the event director, Kat Goheen at: firstname.lastname@example.org If you still need to register, go to the Reggie registration system.
Samish Island Campground Association Canada West/BC Caucus Meeting: This annual meeting is scheduled as the last event of the Samish Online Reunion. It will start at 1:30 p.m., Pacific Time, on Sunday afternoon, August 1. The meeting will be of specific interest to all members and friends in British Columbia who call the Samish Island Campground their camp home. The two main aspects of the meeting are to elect one new Board member, and to hear about what has been happening at the Samish Campground during the last two years of no camps and reunions. This will include a brief financial update. Follow this link to the meeting materials: BC Caucus Meeting. And use the link for the Samish Online Reunion sessions to log on to this meeting. If you have any questions before the meeting, please email me at email@example.com.
Posting for Mission Centre Presidency Volunteers: The application deadline date for the Volunteer Mission Centre Presidency has been extended to Monday, August 9. For details you can find the posting here as well as the detailed position description. Please have a look. Consider the opportunity for yourself. Or be sure you bring it to the attention of someone you think might do well in one of the three positions.
Remember Leadership in Your Prayers: In your prayers and meditations over the next couple of weeks, please remember the leadership needs of the Canada West Mission Centre, as identified in the paragraph above. Pray that those who might feel “called” to these roles will respond. Perhaps pray that those who may not be sure if this is right for them will express their interest in trust and faith. Pray that those selected for leadership will be blessed with God’s direction and vision. Mission centre leadership requires confidence to discern Christ’s Mission for Canada West’s Mission. May your prayers support all these needs.
As always, I pray for you God’s blessings of joy, hope, love, and peace in these challenging times.
