   On Nov. 11 I stood in the drizzle with hundreds of others at the Sidney cenotaph, united in spirit with hundreds of thousands of other Canadians and listened to the sombre roll call of the dead.  A ritual I consider important and meaningful.  

 Nov. 11 was also Sunday this year, and earlier in the morning I'd stood with my congregation to baptize a new member into our church family.  

  Baptism and Remembrance.  Seems an odd juxtaposition yet what better way to honour those who fell than to affirm life anew?  Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we could live life in abundance.

Welcome Abigail Jerusha Elizabeth Smith into the family of God and the congregation of Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church.

A few weeks ago we had the joy of welcoming another baby into our fellowship.
Hailey, daughter of Alisha and Mike Anderson of Gold River, sister to Kaitlin.

And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:  Ps 105:43
