Greet­ings! I’ve only just re­turned this week from Char­lot­te­town, so please ac­cept my apolo­gies for the lack of news last week. 7 of us from Nazareth Lutheran Church jour­neyed to Prince Ed­ward Is­land for the Cana­dian Lutheran Angli­can Youth Gath­er­ing. 1000 kids and their lead­ers gath­ered from across Canada to wor­ship, serve, learn and wor­ship to­gether. What an amaz­ing gath­er­ing it was! The 7 of us who went are so grate­ful to the com­mu­nity for their help in get­ting to this life giv­ing event. We are go­ing to be fundrais­ing for the next CLAY gath­er­ing in Thun­der Bay in 2018. The bot­tle drive con­tin­ues!
