On Sunday, March 2, 2008, with Rev. Howard Clark on holiday in Paris, the Summerlea
congregation had the pleasure of welcoming Paula Kline to lead the service. Among her many
roles, including chairperson of Montreal Presbytery, Paula is the director of the Montreal City
Mission, located at St. James United Church in downtown Montreal. |
Paula had prepared a children's story, but was not familiar with the Summerlea routine so the young folks disappeared before she had a chance to try it out on them. However, she did offer an enjoyable and inspiring talk called "Living at the Edge brings us to the centre", in which her activities at Montreal City Mission and elsewhere served to illustrate the Living on the Edge idea.
Our thanks to Paula for joining us.
