Every Christmas season Centurions rise up and raise money to support the families of the Women’s Rural Resource Centre and the wider community. It is a joyful time and genuine miracles happen. Sometimes we forget that the needs are still there, and also how blessed many of us are each day. It’s time to remember and do something about it…so, Christmas in June!
Just like my favourite YouTube Magician/Prankster Rahat surprised Eric with a “lottery win” followed by a new home, and ultimately dignity (see clips below), we are going to do something similar for the Women’s Rural Resource Centre. We’ve set a goal of ten toonies each which would raise $600 they are not expecting. I believe this number is just a minimum of what we are capable of!
On Monday June 19, we will close out this not-so-random act of kindness by making a Christmas video for the WRRC. Baked goods are welcome to celebrate!
Together we are stronger and it’s a wonderful life!
Monday June 19, 2017 Update:
You did it! $500 and a SportChek gift card for the WRRC. Amazing work Centurions!
“A miracle is not a violation of a natural law. A miracle is the fulfillment of a Higher Law.”

This project began on Valentine’s Day of this year.
“The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, we shall have discovered fire.”
– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
The principle of The Five Love Languages can be applied to ALL our relationships. As an ongoing project in the course we will identify key people in our lives, discern their love languages and act upon those insights to treat them with love in their language. In this way we can become skilled in these languages to ignite and stoke the fire Teilhard de Chardin speaks of. A candle loses none of its flame by lighting another!
Here are some pics of outcomes.
Who knows how far these will ripple into time and space?
Here is the spreadsheet we made today based on our discussion of the influence of materialism against the reality of incomes and expenses. Although this can induce some anxiety and fear, that’s ok at the moment because this kind of thinking is new but if you start now you can get ahead of things!
Concrete awareness now will help you clearly distinguish wants from needs and assist you in making wiser decisions so you can live within your means. It also hopefully puts into perspective all that your parents do for you and the family. We are very blessed by all they do and have done for us. We can pay them back by paying it forward by making wise choices!
Begin by always saving 5% of whatever money comes your way. This will take discipline at first but will rapidly become a compelling habit as you watch this account grow.
