I am sure you are well aware of the devastating wildfires that have forced the evacuation of so many to Edmonton, and nearby Northlands center. Some of you know that Noah’s Godparents are the clergy family at All Saints Anglican in downtown Fort MacMurray. Megan and I were just up there to visit them after Easter.
Because of this connection, Rev. Dane Neufeld felt able to suggest that St. A’s might be a place of worship for him and his displaced parishioners for Sunday. Bishop Fraser (Athabasca Diocese) might join us as well.
I am wondering if we might serve them as a parish by providing a simple potluck lunch following worship. This will be a Holy Spirit moment, so please trust your sense of what you need to bring – main courses, and maybe some bars, cookies, and squares for dessert. If I get word of how many folks we are to expect, you will get a second note.
Thank you for your hospitality and for the otherways you might be supporting the needs of our Northern neighbors.
