Kamloops United Church — a Happy Place! It was Mardi Gras Sunday. First the Mens Group served a Pancake Breakfast, then the awesome Jazz Vespers Band joined us for worship. The Harmony in Hand handbell choir and the Folk of Note choir gifted us with the beautiful “Seek Ye First” (D.Wagner) a deeply moving piece of music. Mardi Gras and Pancake Day (Shrove Tuesday) provide a way to “use up the fat” and other food to be given up for Lent before moving into Ash Wednesday. Could we do this every week?!
Jazz Vespers Band: Sydney Griffith on sax, Wolf Froese on piano, Neil Brun on bass, Kris Ruston on guitar and Rob Gretsinger on percussion.
