Friday Discussion Group
The Friday Discussion Group will begin a new series, on Friday, May 1st, entitled:
Embracing a Life of Meaning: Discovering What Matters
The series will run from May 1st to June 19th and involves short video presentations of the best-selling author Kathleen Norris who provides a unique viewpoint of “what matters most,” including these sessions:
- Belief Matters: Why does belief matter? To what do we give our hearts? What is the core message of what we believe—creeds or commitment? To what extent is to believe also “to belove”?
- The Bible Matters: The Bible is our collective story. How is that story reflected in our daily lives? What is it about the Bible that always seems to address our present moment?
- Community Matters: In community, individualism and imperfection meet grace and acceptance. What is our part in the Body of Christ?
- Place Matters: In what ways is faith set within the physical space of home, church, land and people?
- We Matter: What it means to remain in God’s image and to counter our selfishness by embracing the world and its needs?
KATHLEEN NORRIS, is an award-winning poet, writer and author of four New York Times bestsellers. Her work is intimate and historical, rich in poetry and meditations, brimming with exasperation and reverence, deeply grounded in both nature and spirit, sometimes funny and often provocative. We will have coffee and childcare available beginning at 9:30 am in the Guild room. Please contact Colleen Keech or Sarah Visscher at DiscussionStPaul@gmail.com, or the Church office, to confirm. All Welcome....bring a friend :)

COME TO THE TABLE!
Save the Date for St. Paul’s Social Services seventh annual Soup and Sandwich fundraising dinner and silent auction. Hosted for its seventh year by The London Club, this event brings many supporters of our programs together to
“break bread”, have fun and learn something new in the process!
Staff and volunteers at St. Paul’s Social Services have been very busy over the past eighteen months, developing and implementing our strategic plan. While still maintaining support to those in need through our food bank, hot lunch program and Christmas Share, we have made changes to enrich the nutritional quality of food offered and enhance opportunities to build community. We have also implemented some entirely new programming such as Food Skills and a Community Garden. Our programs at St. Paul’s Social Services are an integral and important part of a network of basic needs programs in the London and area community.
Our Guest Speaker at this year’s Soup & Sandwich event is Jennifer Kirkham, a woman extraordinaire! Jennifer works with the London Poverty Research at King’s University College Centre. This relatively new Centre collects local data and other information to enable our community to reach a deeper understanding of poverty in London. Also, as President and CEO of her own company: Mischevious Cat Productions Inc., Jennifer has provided strategy and management consulting to non-profit, private and government sectors since 2009. Prior to owning her own company, Jennifer worked for the City of London for 16 years, managing a broad portfolio of programs including Ontario Works, child care services, homelessness and social policy research. Jennifer will share her extensive knowledge, passion and insights about poverty in London and how our work at St. Paul’s Social Services can continue to grow and respond to these needs in the best possible ways.
Please join us for a warm, fun and informative evening. And you may just take home a unique and interesting gift from our always changing and intriguing silent auction.
New this year! We are thrilled to feature one special LIVE AUCTION item: an oil-on-canvas painting generously donated by the acclaimed London artist, Kevin Bice. For details and a colour image of this painting, visit www.dailybreadlondon.ca.
Title: “Work in Progress”
Sizes: unframed - 18" x 36" framed - 24" x 43"
Kevin Bice writes: The work was painted from a sketch I did in 2011 while on a painting trip to Newfoundland. The setting of the work is Change Islands, near Twillingate in the northeast part of Newfoundland. The boat is called a "bully boat" and, according to its owner, is one of only two still existing. Pete Porter has had it hauled up on the rocks and has been restoring it slowly over the years. Pete is a local fisherman and also runs a small local museum of artifacts he has collected over the course of his life.
