On Timothy Radcliffe’s Why Go to Church
by Barbara Haddow
I often pondered over why one should go to church, and for a long period of time in my life, I did not attend church. It is now a very important and meaningful part of my life. Reading the book Why Go to Church: The Drama of the Eucharist by Timothy Radcliffe has deepened my desire to attend.
For Radcliffe, asking why one should go to church is really asking why one should attend the Eucharist. He believes that the Eucharist is a fundamental drama of all human existence.
Daily Bible Readings
Have you ever wondered how to make Bible reading a part of your daily life? There are many ways to do this but one resource for Anglicans is the Daily Office Lectionary beginning on page 450 of the Book of Alternative Services (B.A.S). This resource offers daily Bible readings on a two year cycle.
Of course, not everyone has a B.A.S. at home so, for the convenience of our readers, St. Peter's is pleased to connect you with Forward Movement Daily Reading which provides readings for each day based on the Lectionary.
Mission and Outreach
From Winnipeg to San Pancho with Love
by Rod Sprange
Ron, Dra. Hernandez, Michel Griffen and Marilyn bring layettes for the San Pancho babies in 2016
Our Parish of St. Peter in Winnipeg, Canada has been blessed by a loving relationship with volunteers and staff of the hospital in San Pancho (San Francisco) Nayarit, Mexico. Through our connection with Christ Church by the Sea in Puerto Vallarta, we became aware of the great need for new-born baby clothes in the maternity unit of the San Pancho regional hospital.
Message From the Rector

It's My Millisecond
by Lynda Wolf
I have prayed all my life. I don’t recall how this began. Perhaps I was just an anxious child searching for security. However, as a teenager riding my bike out on the prairie in the evening, I recall my young spirit feeling it would burst with joy as I was surrounded by the beauty that surrounded me at sunset. I felt I was meeting God the Creator as I experienced the power of the landscape. I attribute my personal response to God from that time.
