Syrian Refugee Family Information In order to keep everyone informed about OUR SYRIAN REFUGEE FAMILY a bulletin board has been set up in the Fellowship Hall. It will be updated as we progress toward their arrival. We expect a young couple, their 8 month old baby girl, and a grandmother. If you wish to be involved in this important ministry, please check this site and become engaged. New information will be added as we receive it.

For safety reasons there are 2 items we have purchased new for our Syrian baby: a PACK and PLAY CRIB ($98) and a convertible CAR SEAT ($164) for our volunteers to drive the family around the city. If you would like to donate either of these, you may write a cheque to the church and receive a tax slip. Mark it clearly "refugee item".

Obituary for Barbara Patricia Hill

With much sadness we announce the passing of our generous, kind, talented, and much-loved Barb, following a brief illness. She was predeceased by her beloved mother Helen Hill, and grandparents Adamantia and George Plasteras and Lilly and John Ross Hill. Barb is survived by her loving family: father Gordon Hill; sister and brother-in-law Eleanor and Peter Creasey; brother and sister-in-law Douglas and Donna Hill; niece Erin Creasey; nephew and niece-in-law David and Julie Creasey; her treasured great-niece Helen Creasey; and her special Aunt Marian Hill. Over the years, Barb also enjoyed the support and friendship of her extended Hill clan including Aunt Kathleen and Uncle Neil, Uncle Jim and Aunt Sandy, cousins Scott, Allison, Gord, Alec, and their families; her cousins in Greece; and her multitude of wonderful friends in Alberta and around the world. The family extends a special thanks to the staff at Foothills Medical Centre Unit 47, Palliative Care ICU, for taking exceptional care of Barb in her final weeks. A Celebration of Barb’s Life will be held at Lakeview United Church (3023 – 63 Avenue S.W.) on Saturday, January 2, 2016 at 2:00 pm. Photos, memories and condolences may be shared with Barb’s family through www.evanjstrong.com.

Once again, Glamorgan Care Centre would appreciate unwrapped gifts for their residents. Most of their clients are under the age of 65 and are made up of homeless people or folks who have no family support and require long term care. (In previous years a small oil company has assisted at Christmas time. That company has gone bankrupt this year). There are 40 men and 12 women. Gift suggestions are as follows: socks, tuques, scarves, toiletries, mitts, t-shirts. If gifts arrive at the church by Sunday December 13 they will be picked up by Lindsay from the Care Centre. Gifts after that date will also be taken to the centre by one of us. A box labelled Glamorgan will be in the narthex.

Last Sunday, Sacred Cinema had a showing of THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING John Moules submitted a Stephen Hawking quote that he thought people would find interesting:  

However, if we should discover a complete theory, it should in time be understandable in broad principle by everyone, and not just a few scientists. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists, and just ordinary people, be able to take part in the discussion of why it is that we and the universe exist.  If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason- for then we would know the mind of God.” Stephen Hawking, Physicist; A Brief History of Time, Bantam Books, 1988
