Wonderfully made! - July 17

a bird over the waterWe're in the midst of busy times these days: leading music and worship for the Summer Ecumenical Institute in Saskatoon last week, Vacation Bible School this week with Crossroads and Bethany Newton United Churches, then off to Naramata Centre on Sunday for a week of drumming!

Come to me, all you weary - July 3

After living the cycle of scripture for a number of years, certain texts become intricately linked with memories. One such text appears again in the gospel lesson for this Sunday: Matthew 11:28-29.

So here it is for you to sing on your own or in community, along with an mp3 recording from our first album, Reason for Being.
