Stewardship Sunday 2010
Featuring Amy & Jason Chen on Violin, and John Osborne on Flute

Posted Nov 1, 2010
Stewardship Sunday, Oct 31, 2010, included Amy and Jason Chen on violin, John Osborne on flute, and Ben on four legs.
John Coffin and Rev. Scott also found a few moments to talk about stewardship, resulting in a lengthy but enjoyable service.

I asked John Osborne for a bit of background on the Chens and here is his very interesting reply:

That's right Bill. I have known Amy ever since she was my student in Calculus 10 or 11 years ago. Jason is her younger brother. Her older brother Lambert is the violinist (now with the M.S.O.) who gave a concert at Summerlea back when we were raising money for the new organ.
Now Amy (masters in Biochemistry, McGill) is working as a computer programmer with Air Canada and Jason has just finished studying at McGill in biochemistry (Masters) and computer programming. He's now looking for work in "computers."

and Connie telling us about Sarah Beauchamp and her battle with cancer.

Children's time featured Rev Scott's black lab, Ben,
and his care and feeding as an example of stewardship.
Not sure the kids got the message, but they enjoyed Ben.

Finally John Coffin got his chance to talk about Stewardship,
with a roof fund progess (lack of progress ?) chart and
overhead slides to display our somewhat gloomy financial situation.

Amy Chen and John Osborne (and Connie) accompanied the choir
in the anthem, Bach's "Flocks in Pastures Green Abiding".

For the postlude, Amy and Jason Chen played Bach's

Many thanks to Amy & Jason Chen and to John Osborne for their delightful musical contribution to this service.
