Calling All Yogis
In the spirit of the season, I will be offering a one-time class on Monday, December 17 at 7:00 PM at the Masonic Lodge in Cookstown. This is the same day and time as our regular session classes. Our practice will be illuminated with Christmas lights!! The class will be offered on a donation-only basis. The Lodge is collecting donations of canned goods specifically, but of course all offerings are gratefully accepted. Please do let me know if you are planning to attend, so that I can get an idea of numbers. Hope you can make it! Melanie: 249-359-9981

Daily Reflections for Advent
Daily Reflections for Advent from PWRDF
Our former Rector (2004-2008), Fr. Rob Mitchell, has written a series of daily reflections for Advent for the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund. The theme of PWRDF's work this year is Empowered and Empowering Women. Each reflection profiles a woman from the Bible (from Eve to Mary), and links her story to the story of a woman in the developing world. You can sign-up to receive the daily reflections by visiting their website: https://pwrdf.org. On the home page, click on "Get Involved," and then click on "Christmas and Advent Resources." You can then enter your email address and press "subscribe" to receive the reflections in your inbox each day.
