Hello church family,
As I sit down to write this note to all of you I hear this song dancing in my head.
“This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine... As young children in Sunday school we were taught this song. I remember so vividly my Sunday school teacher saying to us all “Don’t let anyone ever take your light away”. I wasn’t sure what that meant exactly but I do remember singing very loud and clear and holding my finger(my light) straight up.
It’s 2021 now, we are in a pandemic, but we cannot let COVID-19 blow our lights out.
We are sending the budget to you all, prior to the AGM, so that you have time to reflect on it and bring your thoughts and ideas forward on March 28. The budget was prepared a few weeks ago and presented to council. We were all disheartened and most of us left the meeting feeling very dark. We thought pondered and reflected. Council met again after two weeks. We discussed the budget once again and every one of us felt hopeful and positive: there are things we can do to keep our communities light shining.
The Visioning and Transition team will be presenting at the AGM and we are looking forward to hearing from each of you. Together we will not let Covid blow our lights out.
