When you hear the name Sandpiper, do you think of the bird or the singing trio who began their career in the mid-sixties? This morning I am thinking of the the three young men who released this song in 1970. It seems to fit this Saturday morning for me because it brings back a memory of my wedding day, May 8,1954. Even though it may be afternoon in other parts of the world it is still morning here in Canada. Happy Saturday.
It goes without saying that I am a hopeless romantic and always have been. Hearing about wedding anniversaries of fifty, sixty and even seventy years can turn my heart to mush. Likewise, stories of couples meeting, falling in love and marrying in their eighties and nineties makes my heart even mushier. I’ve been told that in both types of these relationships it’s the little things that matter. Here is a song from 1953 that says it all, but besides the romanticism of the song, it speaks of the need for the human touch which many of us are lacking at this time. Happy Saturday.
Celebrating 200 Years of God’s Love. That is our slogan as we celebrate our two hundredth anniversary at St. Andrew’s Scarborough today.
We have been celebrating in many different ways over the past year in anticipation, and today’s the day!
The motto over our door is Jehova Jira – translated The Lord Will Provide. (Genesis 22:14)
For two hundred years this scripture has proven amazingly true for our congregation and we look forward to its continuation.
Just as our Lord welcomes all of us with open arms, we at St. Andrew’s also welcome all with open arms which is one of the reasons we are a growing congregation.
Going forward, we continue to celebrate Jesus who not only lived and died but who died and lives in our churches and in our lives.
Happy Anniversary, St. Andrew’s!
1818 – 2018 200 YEARS OF SHARING GOD’S LOVE
