At John Morgan’s memorial service on June 29, words were shared from Rev. Shawn Newton (Toronto First) telling of how John had taught him, in deeds, of the fond bonds formed between a minister and the congregation.
As I head away from you for summer holidays and study leave, I feel rather emotional. This has been a full year. You have supported me through a difficult time, and you have celebrated my ministry, and you have ‘shown up’ for this community in innumerable ways.
My wish for you is that you have a safe and happy summer, enjoying as fully as possible this beautiful world. May you feel the embrace of loved ones, the thrill of new experiences, and by rocked by the gently spinning of the planet. All shall be well, my friends, for you are here, and being here now is what we have, and we are here together.
— Rev. Julie
