Knox Stratford Home

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105

As you and I journey in our lives, we need a light to guide us. The psalmist’s proclamation is a positive one for us to live into. When we feel lost and afraid, God’s teaching of love for the world, for our neighbours and for ourselves is a lamp to guide us.

As the people of Knox Presbyterian Church, we invite you to join us for worship. We gather at 10:30 AM for refreshments and 11 AM for worship. On Sunday, October 26th, we welcome the Rev. Dr. Bryan Lapier as our worship leader.

We are grateful to be an intergenerational church. This website shares opportunities for outreach like the Alley Thrift Store and Cancer Care Mission/Wig Room. We are glad to be part of the ministry of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.

Let us celebrate this harvest season, and be among those who care deeply for the earth, the land, the soil, the animals, birds, fish and plants.

Blessings.

Mark Gedcke

Minister of Knox Presbyterian Church

WEEKLY FAVORITE SONG

By Ali Matthews (c) 2010

 **** Carry Me Home ****

click_for_video

This song is an orphan, it’s sweet and its blue

This song tells a story too sad to be true

It lies on my pillow and it calls out for you

and soon it will carry me home

These boots came from Europe, made of leather so fine

Oh the miles they have travelled, oh the hills they have climbed

They’re scuffed and they’re worn but they’re favorites of mine

and soon they will carry me home

(chorus)

 Home, with eyes closed and heart open

Home, though my spirit is broken

well maybe I was wrong

maybe I wasn’t lost all along

 Hold on to this moment, it’s a bird in your hand

‘cause this life will get stolen and turn to water and sand

but I have a Love, a Love so much more than I am

and soon it will carry me home

 Home, with eyes closed and hearts open

home, with a spirit thats broken

well maybe I was wrong

maybe I wasn’t lost all along

well maybe I was wrong

maybe you were right here all along

This song is an orphan, it’s sweet and its blue

This song tells a story too sad to be true

It lies on my pillow and it calls out for you

and soon it will carry me home
