The St. Clement's Christmas tree team went to work on a rainy December 2 and at the end of an hour or two had transformed our assigned fir tree into a "Lynn Valley Nativity," complete with Holy Family and local wildlife such as raccoons, bears, and chickadees. The tree is also decked out with quotes on the spirituality of nature, such as this one from St. John of Damascus: "The whole earth is a living icon of the face of God."
A description of who we are as the Anglican presence in Lynn Valley and our Christmas service times are also displayed.
Thank you for your support of this year's Christmas tree fund; as a result of our sponsorship and others, the Lynn Valley Community Association was able to present the Harvest Project with a cheque for $2,750.
We hope you are able to make time for a leisurely stroll through the Christmas trees in Lynn Valley Village; the St. Clement's tree is between Delany's and Browns, at the top of the stairs. You can even vote for your favourite tree (ours is #27, by the way ;-) Ballot forms are available from the Village merchants.
