10th Anniversary

  On Sunday, after service, eighty people attended a luncheon to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Irwin's call to Saanich Peninsula Presbyterian Church.  
   Afterwards, I browsed through my photos of those ten years and realized that the congregation had really lucked out.  We got Irwin and his family.  I also discovered that I have many, many more pictures of his children than of Irwin.  They are very photogenic!  Here they are at Christmas 2007

The way they are now!

Years is a big frame, hard to catch hold of, but the moments in those ten years are soul-deep.  I've included those I'm aware of. I'm sure every member of the congregation can add another moment that was important to him/her.  Thank you for ten years, Irwin -- and family.  We look forward to many more.
