What to do with your "Old Laptop"?

Many of us are in the blessed position of getting to update or replace our old laptops or notebooks...

Quilts sent to Mauritania

January 25, 2011 — In May 2010, the Trinity Quilters once again participated in BC Baling Day, a special event to gather quilts, school supplies, baby kits, and so on, from Lutheran congregations all over British Columbia. These items are all sent to Abbotsford in May to be baled by volunteers and placed inside a shipping container. Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR) identifies an area in need and ships the container there.

In 2010, the shipment went to Mauritania.  A report from CLWR with photos is below showing that the quilts and other items were distributed to almost 4500 people in need of aid. If you would like to know more about the Trinity Quilters, please click here.

Listen to "Hallelujah"

November 12, 2010 — You may remember KD Lang's moving presentation of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" during the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Well, in 2006 a young lady from Prince Edward Island adapted the lyrics to reflect the Easter Story and Jesus' journey to the cross. She recently received "mechanical rights" to the song so she could record it.

How We Got the Bible

Ever wonder about the history of the Bible? When was each section written? How many authors wrote and how many languages were the original texts written in? How many versions and translations are there? When did the Bible get reorganized into Chapters and Verses? How do we know if today's versions of the Bible are true and faithful to the original writings?

For answers to these questions and many more facts, watch the video series How We Got the Bible. Five online videos of approximately 6 to 10 minutes each.
