World Humanitarian Day
World Humanitarian Day is held each year on August 19 to honour those working to provide emergency aid and create a more peaceful and humane world. Emergency situations—either natural disasters or conflict—take a massive toll on communities. In war-torn countries, innocent civilians become caught in the crossfire, forced to flee with nothing. Large-scale environmental disasters create massive food shortages, displacement and disease. Dedicated partners at ecumenical networks such as Canadian Foodgrains Bank and the ACT Alliance enable Presbyterian World Service & Development to respond to suffering caused by emergency situations around the world. On this day and every day, we are thankful for the spirit that inspires humanitarian work around the world

We Pray For
Heavenly Father, nourish us with your word of Life and make us one with you in Love and Prayer. May we know your peace and love, removing distractions that take our gaze away from your glory. May we quiet the noise that pulls us from adoration from you and may we see your goodness and glory. We pray for those in need, especially for Cathy Kay, Dorothy Clow, Heather Ford, Louise Weeks, David MacIntyre, Eddy Dykerman,Wendell Nicholson, Gwen Henry, Aneila River- Watts, Irwin Campbell and Elwin Corbett. May the words of our mouths and the actions of our hands all bring Glory, Honour and Praise unto Christ. Amen

The Joint Session met on Tuesday evening at Brookfield to consider the report from the Renewal Team meetings held in July. Copies of the report were distributed online via SCOOP on Tuesday morning, and are available in hard copy this morning. Session approved all the recommendations given, with a couple of very minor amendments for clarity. Renewal Teams will be meeting in August to address the logistics of moving to regular weekly services, reporting to the Joint Session in September. The report will again be made available to the congregation. Finally, it was confirmed that Rev Cathy Kay has agreed to provide pulpit supply for the 9:30 services at Brookfield and Hunter River, alternating with Rev Thomas.
