Remembering those no longer with us

Remembering those no longer with us

Early in the proceedings of this Synod, Bishop Eleanor read the names of some of those who had departed since the last Synod, and silence was held.

The names included: Janet Hesketh, Basil Wakelin, Athol Mann, Audrey Bosselman, John Flenley, Doug Edmiston, David Cole, Doug Weaver, Brian Jackson, John Shallard, Russell Gaskin, Janice Lyon.

Bishop Justin spoke of the loss that occurs when a tall tree falls in the forest, and the gap that remains. He encouraged us to pray that in that space, new saplings would grow.
