Crocuses are croaking, daffodils are dancing—it must be spring! And with Spring comes the annual Ryerson Spring Thrift Sale! It’s time to clear out your cupboards, round up your no-longer-cherished treasures, and bring your contributions to be sorted for the sale.

May the Love of the Lord / Wei yuan Shen di ai MV218
On Sunday, Sept 21st we learned a new response song for the end of the service. We will continue singing the song over the next few weeks. We will sing it twice, once in English and once in Mandarin.
To help us learn our new response song in Mandarin here is Anna Chen’s pronunciation and recitation audio files.

May the love of our God rest upon your soul.
May God’s love dwell in you, throughout every day.
May God’s countenance shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May God’s Spirit be upon you as you leave this place.
