THOUGHTS & SMILES

 Colours

Frowns can make the start of day
A really dreary kind of grey.
But a smile is sunshine’s gold
So will you today a smile unfold?
A smile—and this will make you think—
Puts you—and others—in the pink!

Bishop’s Pilgrimage of Prayer Cycle Ride
August 3, 2017
STAGE 14:  93km
Esterhazy to Yorkton

As you may have read, in previous letters and emails, this year’s Bishop’s Pilgrimage of Prayer Cycle Ride is in three stages.  It is an ambitious endeavour to cycle 1235 km which is roughly equivalent to cycling across Saskatchewan and Manitoba and is 500kms longer than last year’s ride.  Like last year, it is not a race, it is a pilgrimage, a prayerful and enjoyable time of fellowship with all whom we shall meet along the way. 

As I make final preparations for the ride, I hope some of you might consider riding along for a portion of the journey or be able to offer hospitality by way of, refreshments, an overnight billet.  As the ride progresses, I hope you will also have opportunity to worship, share your faith stories and discover what God is doing across the diocese.

 The plan for August 3rd is:
                10.00am Esterhazy to Churchbridge  (35km)
                11.45am Arrive Churchbridge
                1.00pm Churchbridge to Saltcoats (26km)
                2.15pm Saltcoats (afternoon tea and prayers)
                3.30pm Saltcoats to Yorkton (32)
                6.00pm Potluck supper and Prayer & Praise

With this in mind, I am hopeful that the parishes of New Sumner and Yorkton will be able to accommodate these requests:
                Churchbridge     11:45 am  Lunch
                Saltcoats            2.15 pm Afternoon Tea and Prayers 
                Yorkton              6.00 pm  Potluck Supper (or BBQ?) and Prayer & Praise                 
For the Prayer and Praise, I am willing to play a guitar if one can be supplied. Or, if you have a musician willing to provide accompaniment, that would be great.  All those who play instruments are welcome to join me.  A variety of hymns and gospel songs will be sung. Sharing times of God's blessings will be encouraged during the worship.
In addition to being a prayer journey across the diocese, the cycle ride will also provide an opportunity for people to contribute financially to the bishops discretionary fund.  In 2016 over $25,000 was raised
I hope that the 2017 ride will receive equal support for these worthy causes.

I thank you once again for your interest in the ride and I pray you will be blessed as you prepare for what promises to be an amazing journey/pilgrimage across the diocese.

Yours in Christ

+ Rob Hardwick

-Prayer
Loving God, we come to you trusting in your mercy and knowing that your steadfast love endures forever. Look with mercy on those who are harmed or displaced. Give them strength to meet the days ahead, your peace which passes all understanding and new hope in the resurrection. Move in those who are able to give aid, that we may be your hands and heart on earth. Be with all who offer assistance, may your Spirit uphold them. As you have made water a sign of your kingdom, and of cleansing and rebirth, grant your people vision to see a new life on the other side of disaster.
To you be given all honour and praise, through Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord. Amen
