The luncheon and meeting will be held in the ‘Lounge’ on the second floor which can be accessed by the stairs or an elevator. There is parking adjacent to the Centre.
Our speaker is our own Rev. Larry Scott: "An Introduction and a Reading from The Duckling House," his recently published humourous novel.
Please contact Earl Jenson (778-265-4198) or Cyril Nasim (250-383-0400) if you need a ride.
Please Note: There will be a change in the format for this meeting. Larry will begin his talk sharply at noon with lunch to follow so some folks can attend another engagement at 1:30 p.m. Others can stay for the question and discussion time after the lunch.
Larry Scott is a retired United Church minister who served congregations in small towns and larger centres throughout Western Canada for thirty-five years. He holds an undergraduate degree in political science and history from the University of Toronto and a master of divinity degree from Princeton. In ministry, he would often walk with people through various life experiences, some of them joyful and some of them tragic. He has always been interested in how people build a sense of hope, be it in a religious framework or otherwise. He has spent the last twenty years in Victoria, BC, where The Duckling House takes place. Larry’s hobbies include gardening, editing a monthly newsletter for Scottish groups in Greater Victoria, and playing the bagpipes.
