In case you haven't heard, Erin is doing me the honour of becoming my wife at 11am right here at St Herman's on Saturday, April 28th. The service will be a eucharistic service so if you wish to receive communion come fasting. The service will follow with a potluck. Erin's father is generously providing us with some large platters of Filipino food, but we are begging the kindness and mercy of our church family to indeed do your miracle of love that you do at every liturgy when we all go home with happy bellies. We are only expecting about 6-7 additional families so attendance should be up like on a baptism day. Uncle Sid (Ketel) has graciously arranged for a liquor license for the church. The "bar" will be selling $3 drinks. No BYOB. Sorry.

We do hope you all will come. It is very important to us to share this with our community and even more than that, to receive our community's blessing and prayers as we move toward Christ together in this next adventure of our lives. We wouldn't be who we are and, indeed, we wouldn't have a prayer without you. Thank you for saving us. You truly are our family.

Some of you have been asking about gifts. Gifts are certainly not expected, but for those of you who have been wondering, we have set up a wishlist at Lehman's. That can be found here. If you think our list is lame, we also will be headed to Portland shortly and we are huge fans of Powell's Books.

Thank you all and I look forward to sharing this day with you!

Your servant,
Andrew Seraphim Friesen

Lord's blessing be with you, even if we can't (celebrating a LOT of stuff already that weekend on the Sunshine coast).
