MEN’S HOSTEL NEEDS MUGS: Every night we host 102 men who drink lots of coffee, juice, and water. Serving beverages in ceramic mugs is so much more welcoming than disposable Styrofoam cups. We encourage the men to keep their mugs when they move out. We run through a whole lot of mugs every year; therefore your donation of mugs will be appreciated. Please contact 604-443- 3292; e-mail

Trinitarian Stewardship: God the Father, creator and giver of who we are and all that we possess; God the Son, our redeemer, and supreme teacher of Christian Stewardship; God the Spirit, the activator, the Holy Spirit guiding how we are to use our gifts. The bottom line is that one day we will all be held accountable for how we shared the gifts we were given; how we responded to what we were taught; and, how we acted when inspired. When that day comes, we pray that through God’s grace we will hear the words, “Well done good and faithful steward!”
