|The final 'A' seems to be hiding. We are not 'Alph."|
Last week I travelled with Amy, our Alpha Youth Coach for Alberta, to Ponoka Alberta for a Youth Champions meeting she helped organize with a number of Youth Unlimited reps at First Baptist Church there.
And here we are there, all except me (I took the picture) and one youth worker who went upstairs for a minute:
In the group, in addition to the Youth Unlimited folks, were a young teacher from a Catholic school in Camrose who plans to run the Youth Film Series for her grade 10's and a young lady from Stepping Stones, a group who reaches out to single moms. On the left is the Rev Donna Willer, Rector of St Mary's Anglican Church in Ponoka. Last I spoke with her, a year or two ago, she was in Barrhead Alberta.
Barrhead is the northernmost parish in the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton, Ponoka is the southernmost, so we joked that she has nowhere else to go, unless she wants to hit Jasper in the west and Cold Lake in the east (the Anglican church in Lloydminster is in the Saskatchewan side of the city).
It's off to Bonnyville Community Church tomorrow for Pastor Ken's wonderful Pastors' Appreciation Lunch. Pastor Ken is giving Amy and I time to make an Alpha presentation. I expect I'll have a good report on that event.
