June 19 – Father’s Day and Conference Sunday

No reflection today, it was a report back from all of the people who went to Maritime Conference Annual Meeting from St. Luke’s.  We used our favorite music from Conference (plus a few other pieces), and showed the video of Rev. Matthew Fillier’s spoken word from Conference.
