The spirit moves! And, very often it moves through music, particularly this summer when the air is alive with divine inspiration! We love the quiet of Point Roberts, but often we feel a bit of loneliness along with the solitude.
The need to join hands with more of the Christian community drives us to form bonds and when we do, we literally sing for joy. We are neighbors; we are community, and we are not alone.
For many years, I have longed to build bonds with the churches north of our border and this year we are seeing the fruition of this dream. Last April, St. David’s Anglican Church hosted the Point Roberts Winds Concert for us, this summer Tsawwassen United is hosting our Summer Jazz Quartet Concert (July 6 at 7 p.m.), as well as the Trinity Children’s Summer Music Camp (August 5 – 11 – more about this in the August edition of the APB). Bonds are being formed; hands across the border is becoming a reality, and prayers have been answered.
Come join us for these events and when you come on July 7 to our 100-plus-year-old church on APA Road for the “Strike Up the Band” afternoon celebration (three concert bands playing for three hours beginning at 2 p.m.), be sure to bring a chair.
Oh, and come hungry. Food service will be available beginning at 12:30 p.m. Come and be joyful! Our church service is at 11 a.m. on Sundays. We would love to see you there regardless of which side of the border you live on!
