Christmas eve, I attended a Candlelight Service at the Unitarian/Universalist church on Inglis Street, where my son Charles had a "gig" accompanying the carol singing. Here he is at the piano - you can't see his face very well, as the light for the music was shining right on it. Here is my Christmas Tree all decorated. Traditions differ among different faiths. Can you believe that the Pilgrim Separatists did not celebrate Christmas? They considered it a heathen feast! I think this harks back to when the northern Europeans in pre-christian times worshipped the Evergreen Tree which stayed green in the cold of winter, and brought the promise of Spring! But now we can combine honouring nature with honoring the birth of Jesus - and see both as part of the divine world. ... See MoreSee Less

Sylvia and her daughter Kunyi entertained 17 Friends and friends at their home on Sunday Dec. 16 for a potluck luncheon. It was so good to see Lee, and her daughter Betsy and friend, as Lee has been recovering from a fall.
Also great to see Mark, who told us he has been coming to Quaker potlucks at Sylvia's since he was five years old and he is a lot older than 5 now!

What's going on with Halifax Quakers? Quite a few things: We had a new attending family recently - Tansy, a graduate student, brought along her mother, and her 7 year old daughter one recent Sunday. Glad to see your family, Tansy!
Jocelyne and Maida are on a Planning Committee for arranging three sessions at public libraries for presentations during International Interfaith Harmony Week, the first week in February 2019. These sessions will feature panel discussion by leaders from a variety of faith groups. Quaker Ruth has been invited to be on a panel.
Dick is taking on the task of Treasurer of Atlantic Half-Yearly Meeting - as well as many other volunteer activities.
Sylvia continues to bring her artistic centerpieces to inspire us, with natural objects, plants, driftwood, shells and other objects of beauty.
Silent worship on Sundays gives us time to reflect in a peaceful setting.
