January 2013 is just around the corner! Here are some things to look forward to in and around St. Andrew’s in January:
- Sunday, Jan. 13th @ noon – The Women’s Missionary Society will be hosting a fundraising lunch after worship. Donations will go towards this year’s international mission project – Maternal and Child Health Care in Malawi. Learn more about this important work by going to the WMS website.
- Thursday, Jan. 17th @ 1:30 pm – The Thursday Group will welcome author Lesley-Anne McLeod (known to St. Andrew’s folk as Lesley Bens). Lesley has loved all things British for longer than she can remember. So it was natural that when she turned to writing fiction she should write Regency romances, those uniquely English historical romances. For the past fifteen years Lesley has been able to focus her attention on fiction writing, learning the intricacies of character development, the importance of word choice, and the necessity of creating a world in which the reader can believe and dwell. She regards research for the historical novel as a joy and a necessity that involves long hours with wonderful books. Learn more about Lesley-Anne McLeod’s work on her blog.
- January 20-27 is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The opening worship service in Saskatoon will be on Sunday, Jan. 20th, 3:00 pm at St. Thomas Wesley United Church (20th Street @ Ave. H). The preacher will be Bishop Gregory Cameron from the Church in Wales (Anglican). For the full schedule of prayer services and special events throughout the week go to Ecumenism in Canada.
- Saturday, Jan. 26th @ 8:30 am – All women are invited to the Presbyterian Women’s Breakfast. Enjoy good food, great company, and a short program at Mulberry’s on 3rd Avenue.
