A double baptism for two greatgrandchildren of Norval Blair. Heidi Blair
(Dean Scarlette) and her sister Lyndsay Blair (Ashley Craig). Rev. Elke
Mehnert did a wonderful job including everyone in the proceedings and just as
good a job making them feel at ease and welcome. Harley Bye also had a few
words of welcome. It was also the first Sunday of advent (getting ready for the
arrival of another baby of long ago.
The regular congregation was busy as a
beehive. The 6 piece Church band had appropriate songs for a baptism. Our
professional church photographer Norm Rennie behind the lense. I had
activities to keep the 7 visiting children under age 8 from getting too
restless. After Church the men were inspecting a beautiful new wood
railing to be installed to hold pictures. The women were admiring two
adorable puppets crafted by Ann Clark for the Kids for Christmas service coming
up on December 11. With Linda Rennie diving into creating
another. Plans were being made for long time Rockburn resident
Marion Arthur's brother William Morgan's memorial service next Sunday. We
are definately a Church responding to the call. We are not just sitting
around waiting for things to happen.
