On Tuesday, January 30, eight women met around a table in the Church Brewery Restaurant for Tea & Talk. Tea and Talk is a welcoming group that meets people where they are. It is an opportunity to share our faith and our thankfulness outside of Sunday mornings.
We laughed, shared stories and shared some elements of how we know God. Sometimes we spoke about times we knew that God had worked in our lives, and sometimes we shared how we recognise our strengths, or ‘gifts.’ About half this group were first-timers. Somebody brought a friend.
The Church Restaurant is gracious and accommodating, the staff is kind and is prepared for the variety of requests that are made. Patsy Clothier makes our bookings and brings the conversation starters. We meet about six times a year but there are some who wished we met monthly!
This parish is located in Mi'kma'ki, the traditional territory of the Mi'kmaq people. This territory is covered by the "Treaties of Peace and Friendship" which Mi'kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) People first signed with the British Crown in 1775.
