‘Ancient Splendor’ to be shown

“An Ancient Splendor” will be shown Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 6:30 p.m. at the Barwick Hall.
This full-length production traces the history of God’s expression to man in the Word, whether spoken, written, or manifested in human form as Jesus, the Son of God.
From creation to modern day, the Wycliffe story that frames the plot details the high price individuals have paid throughout history to bring God’s expression of love–The Word–to their fellow man.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the performance will begin at 6:30 p.m., with a break for dinner at 7 p.m. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
There is no admission charge but an offering will be taken. An opportunity also will be given to participate in a faith promise project.
For more information or to make reservations, call 482-3181. Or you can visit www.wycliffe.ca and see where else “An Ancient Splendor” is showing.

Our family was saddened late Friday afternoon when we received word from our son, Jay, at Sudbury that our grandson, Travis Michl, and friend Tanya Newby’s five-day-old daughter, Stasney Ann, had passed away suddenly.
The couple was en route here from Parry Sound, stopping over in Sudbury for a brief visit, and were to arrive here Saturday. But on arrival in Sudbury, they were preparing to take their daughter from the car seat when they realized something was terribly wrong.
The infant was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead. They are awaiting the coroner’s report to determine the cause of death.
Grandparents Bill and Ann Michl left immediately for Sudbury to be with the couple. They all were staying with Jay’s family.
Talking to my daughter, Ann, the body was released for burial at Parry Sound. Funeral services were set for this past Monday (Oct. 1) at 2:30 p.m. from the funeral home there.
Stasney-Ann had been our second great-grandchild. Sadly, Adelia and I never had a chance to see her.
