Life is amazing. After dropping off our daughter at the airport in Brandon, we visited the Superstore ... and bumped into our next door neighbours and also some people we knew in Shoal Lake. Our world has its happen-stances. Life has it's encounters that enable us to connect and know that we are networked with each other. We are not islands onto ourselves as John Donne so ably put it. We are supported and upheld by those around us. That was even more evident when we celebrated our beginnings here in Killarney Parish Group on Friday. Many people showed up from far and wide from as far as Dauphin. One even came on a motorcycle. It was a joyous time to be supported by the wider community from Bishop William to all our friends old and new.
