If you live to be 70 years old you will spend (or may have already spent) 20 years and 3 months sleeping; 10 years and 5 months watching TV; 5 years and 9 months taking some form of transportation; and 7 years and 6 months eating and drinking. Over the course of the summer we at St. Paul’s are going to take less than 24 hours to discuss some of life’s biggest questions.

We began our 24-hour journey through life’s biggest questions this past Sunday (July 3rd) with the launch of our Summer Sunday Alpha Series. It was a great time. Bishop David Edwards was with us, as well as more than 90 participants. A big thanks to everyone who helped make it such as successful launch. And thanks especially to the people who fed us afterwards. The strawberry shortcakes, breakfast bake, and brunch goodies were delicious.

In case you missed last Sunday, Alpha is a series of interactive discussions about life, faith and God. This particular Alpha program is centred around the brand new Alpha Film Series, a collection of excellent short films exploring some of the basics of the Christian faith. If you miss a Sunday, don’t worry. You’ll be able to find links to each Sunday’s Alpha film or similar films on our website.

But the real fun is during the discussions after each film, so I hope you will join us in person for as many Sundays as possible this summer.

Our topic this week: “who is Jesus?”.  Hope to see you there.
