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."
offered Fauvé's Pavane as the Prelude.

and his care and feeding as an example of stewardship.
Not sure the kids got the message, but they enjoyed Ben.
