Happy New Year!

January 01, 2022 @ 00:00 By: gordon Category: Current affairs, General

As we enter the third year of the COVID pandemic, I want to wish everyone a safe and healthy 2022. May we all see all our friends in person sooner rather than later.

Merry Christmas!

So, another Christmas that’s trying to set yet more firsts that really don’t need to be set. I almost got to play handbells at an in-person Christmas Eve service, but when the omicron variant caused the numbers to start to blow up, that was cancelled. But, we were able to record a couple of pieces to be used in webcast services, so that’s something.

Anyways, I hope that everyone has a very merry Christmas and a safe, happy and healthy new year despite the scary times we’re continuing to live in.

Remembrance Day

November 11, 2021 @ 11:00 By: gordon Category: Current affairs, General

We pause today to remember those who have served their country and made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may have peace, security and freedom.

To them and their families I say “Thank you”.

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2021!

When I posted my annual greeting message last year, I did not imagine that the year would have gone the way it did. While 2020 definitely had a lot of negatives, there were a few positives that I’m not sure I’d want to give up.

So, here’s to a great 2021! Let’s put 2020 behind us and look forward to much better future! May we all have a safe, healthy and prosperous new year!

Merry Christmas!

So, this is the weirdest Christmas that I’m sure that most of us have experienced. Normally, Christmas is all bells, all the time. This year, the closest I’ve gotten to a handbell is when I helped Jeanette record a solo handbell performance.

Anyways, I hope that you and yours have a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year! May 2021 be much better than the dumpster fire that is 2020.

Remembrance Day

November 11, 2020 @ 11:00 By: gordon Category: Current affairs, General

Today we pause to remember the sacrifices made by so many people so that we can live in peace and freedom. This year, which is the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, we cannot gather at the at the places like the National War Memorial because of COVID, but that doesn’t mean we cannot pause and reflect.

To those who have served, I say thank you.

Happy New Year!
