Harbour views has been inactive for a few months, but what I can say is this:-  ‘Watch this space…’  We are now back on-line and will continue to share news, reflections of faith, and happenings in the church as before.  I look forward to this opportunity again.  A thought for today…  I have enjoyed much of the weather we have been experiencing lately, the sunshine, the warmer temperatures.  It has been a joy to wear summer clothes and sandals and feel the warmth of the breeze.  BUT, this weather is totally out of sinc with weather patterns that are usually experienced here, and are needed here, at this time of year.   I heard a newscast just the other day that New South Wales is 100% in drought. Farmers are at their wits end and are having to sell livestock because they cannot feed or get water to the herds – whole communities are experiencing extreme drought conditions.  And on the other side of the coin, Toronto Ontario, has just come through a freak rainstorm where about 75 millimetres of rain fell in a two hour period.  Wide power outages occurred, Subways and Street Cars and other vehicles were flooded, roads impassable.  Rain is not an unusual sight at this time of year in Toronto, but in this form and by this amount it is.  Our climate is changing, weather patterns are changing, perhaps as noted above. And, sadly our minds and our actions are not changing in time with the weather, we are more than a few beats behind.  Climate change is real!...  more on this next month.  With many blessings.,  Brian
