Carolling in the Pines – great night! Christmas spirit is alive and well in North Leaside! A big thank you to everyone helping with this event – the Metropolitan Silver Band, 132nd Scouts, Song Leader Steve Jarvis, Northlea United Church Elves, Santa, and everyone in the community who came out! This year, proceeds from this event will be going to Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office to help with their women and children’s work, alleviating childhood poverty.
Join Lee-Ann for a quiet, candle lit, walking meditation, on her indoor labyrinth, Wednesday evening from 7:00 – 8:00. The labyrinth is not a maze, it is a path painted on canvas and laid on the floor. The path leads, with concentric circles, to the center. The same path leads you out so there is no ‘getting lost’. When you walk, you allow the busyness of your mind to clear away. If you have never walked and are unsure of what to do, don’t worry, there will be guidance and support as you need it. Our gathering will include readings and reflections, candle lighting and prayer.
