Church News: February 2015

So many good things

By Barbara Wayland

Now that we have had a month to recover from the holiday festivities we find ourselves looking for something to do.

I am happy to tell you that Lucy Williams has already been very busy planning the 2015 Trinity Chamber Series. While there may be changes and additions, here is the line-up as it currently stands:

February 20, 7:30 p.m. – Pianist Michael Munro returns to concert playing Bach, Schubert and Berg

February 21, 7:30 p.m. – Mystic Winds in concert playing Barber, Ravel, Ibert and more

April 17, 7 p.m. – Trinity Community Choir sings ABBA!

April 25, 3 p.m. – The Cowal-Earle Duo presents “Vignettes of Canada”

May 24, 4 p.m. – Chamber West Quintet in concert

June 14, 4 p.m. – Capilano Flute Choir

June 21, 4 p.m. – Bergamasca Recorders in concert

At least two other concerts are in the works as well. Watch for further announcements. This wide range of musicians, instruments, styles and composers means there is something on the list for everyone – a veritable feast for music lovers. I’m marking my calendar now so I don’t miss any of these fabulous programs.

In January the church held its annual general meeting and elected the members of the church council for 2015–16. The worship committee is already planning the services for Lent through Easter.

The church will hold an Ash Wednesday service at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, February 18; a Maundy Thursday communion service at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 2; and a Good Friday service at 11 a.m. on April 3. Easter Service will be at 11 a.m. on April 5.

We have much to be thankful for, not the least of which is our mild winter weather and our peaceful little part of the world. Remember to spend a few moments each morning listing those things for which you are grateful. Family, friends and good work are just a few.

The practice of gratitude brings joy to the heart and peace to the soul. May life be good to you in the weeks and months that lie ahead.
