November 4, 2021, 7:30pm
We welcome couples or singles of all ages. We all wish to know more about the Christian faith as we encourage each other along "The Way" of growing faith in Jesus. The group disbands around 9 PM, but time is always available for pastoral care needs for those who wish to stay for one-to-one pray. This year our Bible Studies will concentrate on the Attributes of God and the Gospel of Matthew. Prior to Covid, we met at a location in the Bayview and Steeles area, but since Covid, we have continued to meet on Zoom. There will be occasions when we will physically meet together once the pandemic allows. Led by: Suzanne Wilkinson

Yorkminster Park Speakers Series
November 5, 2021, 7:00pm
Presenter: Tim Cook In this lecture, best-selling author Tim Cook will talk about his book, The Fight for History, and he will examine the strange way that Canadians ignored for decades their epic contributions during the Second World War. Despite 1.1 million Canadians who served in uniform, and millions more who supported the total war effort from the home front, Canada rapidly left the war behind, publishing few histories, building fewer monuments, and advancing into the prosperous second half of the twentieth century. Dr. Cook will talk about the neglect of our Second World War history until quite recently, and highlight the key role of veterans in reclaiming this important legacy of service and sacrifice. Biography Tim Cook is the Director of Research at the Canadian War Museum. Cook is the author or editor of 13 books and they have won the C.P. Stacey Prize for Military History (twice), the Ottawa Book Award (three times), the RBC Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction, and the J.W. Dafoe Book Prize (twice). In 2012, Dr. Cook was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for his contributions to Canadian history and in 2013 he received the Governor General’s History Award. He is a frequent commentator in the media, a member of the Royal Society of Canada, and a Member of the Order of Canada.

Berean Bible Study
November 7, 2021, 9:30am
The Berean Class has been meeting at the church in the Red Board Room for over 30 years. The Class is interactive.

It is our hope that we will at some time in the near future meet again at the Church. Also, it is our hope that in the future those who cannot physically attend, will be able to participate in the class by linking into ‘zoom'. Led by: Peter Ferguson

The Rose Code by Kate Quinn 1940: As England prepares to fight the Nazis, three very different women answer the call to mysterious country estate Bletchley Park, where the best minds in Britain train to break German military codes. Osla is the girl who has everything—beauty, wealth, and the dashing Prince Philip of Greece sending her roses—but she burns to prove herself as more than a society girl. Mab, the product of east-end London poverty, works the legendary codebreaking machines as she conceals old wounds and looks for a socially advantageous husband. Beth, whose shyness conceals a brilliant facility. But war, loss, and the pressure of secrecy will tear the three apart. 1947: As the royal wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip approaches, the three women are reunited by a mysterious encrypted letter. A mysterious traitor has emerged from the shadows of their Bletchley Park past, and now Osla, Mab, and Beth must resurrect their old alliance and crack one last code together. When: Third Tuesday of each month from September to June (no December meeting) Where: TBD (Either the Friendship room and/or by Zoom) Time: 7:00 – 8:30pm

Yorkminster Park Speakers Series
November 26, 2021, 7:00pm
Presenter: Rick Phillips The plays of William Shakespeare, the sculpture of Michelangelo, the poetry of Pablo Neruda. These are all considered pinnacles of human artistic achievement, and the nine symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) are included among them. They are the most famous and frequently-performed and recorded symphonies ever composed. But why are they still popular and what makes them so great? In this lecture with music examples, classical music writer and broadcaster Rick Phillips will uncover the reasons behind the undying legacy of the nine Beethoven symphonies, and what they can express and communicate to us today, in our busy, hectic lives, two hundred years later. Biography Rick Phillips is a busy broadcaster, podcaster, freelance writer and reviewer, panel moderator, lecturer, consultant, concert host and music tour guide. He presents a variety of Music History & Appreciation courses at such venues as the University of Toronto, York University, the Royal Conservatory of Music and George Brown College. Often a juror in the classical music categories for the Juno Awards, he is the author of The Essential Classical Recordings – 101 CDs, published by McClelland & Stewart. From 1994 to 2008, Rick was the Host and Producer of SOUND ADVICE, the weekly guide to classical music and recordings, heard across Canada on both CBC Radio One and Radio Two every weekend. Affiliated with the CBC for 30 years, working in Montreal, Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto, his career spanned production to management to on-air. He holds a B. Mus. from McGill University and a M. Mus. from the University of Toronto. www.soundadvice1.com and soundadvice@sympatico.ca.
