Easter Morning dawned clear and cold and beautiful as ice floated by and geese were heading north overhead. About a dozen of us gathered for this year's Sunrise Service at the lake. Scott led a quiet and thoughtful service of readings, hymns, and reflection.
The troops were welcomed back by the Rodd family
who provided us with a lovely breakfast of fresh fruit, Hot Cross Buns and coffee.
Thank you Linda, Roy, Elizabeth and Caroline!
The Easter Service brought us a lovely surprise -
namely Rolanda Taylor (now the Reverend Rolanda Taylor) who was visiting her mother Victoria for Easter.
Rolanda helped Scott with the communion service and later brought us her news from Saskatchewan.
She and Victoria stayed for the coffee hour and visited with all.
What a delight to see the two of them.
To help make this Easter special, the choir
- diminished in numbers - but not in spirit,
treated us all to a wonderful introit AND anthem.
They are seen here in practice before the service.
To the right are links to each of their Easter offerings.
