    Yes - this strain of COVID seems to have symptoms of just about anything & everything, so it's really challenging to know unless you test - and even then, I think lots of false negs. Gastro, very sore throat, cough, myalgia, headache, fatigue, rash - some or one? I had gastro too last week -...

    Thanks ChemGal. I'm feeling about 85% - just a bit tired. Mate still sounds like he has a bad cold - after 2 weeks :-( But his other symptoms are improving. So yes - I think the 4 shots helped us escape the worst of this. :-)

    It's been a slow day here - as we both continue to recover from an episode of COVID, acquired while on vacation :rolleyes:. Grateful to have A/C, as it's been stiflingly hot. I have concern for all those who do not. I dusted off my crochet skills & have been creating a fruit/veggie basket for...

    When we used to go back country camping (canoe trips) we would always be required to file a route plan prior to departure into the park; so hopefully this sort of practice is common & parks staff would know where to check on people after the storm. We also followed this practice when on crown...

    question: Congregational reviews

    I think this is a crucial question! And it would be very interesting to know how the regions receive, track, respond to the reports. Has anyone actually yet received feedback on a self-assessment report? I get that it is a 'new' process & it may take some time yet to create a culture wherein...

    question: Congregational reviews

    This 'annual self-assessment' checklist seems useful. https://canadianshieldrc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/CSRC-Self-Assessment-Checklist-form-fillable.pdf It does note Manual reference re Annual Self Assessment requirement & reporting.

    question: Congregational reviews

    Yes - oversight visits & processes changed with the switch to Regional Councils. If I remember correctly, I'm thinking the 'new' process is for congregations to do an annual revisit & revision of their Faith Story (not sure that's the right name, but you know - the thing that gets posted on...

    On the important subject of pope's apoloogy - I think this statement from the United Church is key for us 'settler folks' - to listen - Papal Statement to Residential Institution Survivors We at the United Church acknowledge the complexity of emotions brought up this week by the Papal visit and...
