The Book of “Genesis” (the Hebrew meaning = “Beginnings”), is the first book of the Bible. It starts with the creation of the world. We all learned that God is the creator of our world and created our world in 6 days. How were these days created?
- Day One Night and Day
- Day Two Sky and Sea
- Day Three Land and Vegetation
- Day Four Stars, Sun and Moon
- Day Five Sea creatures including fish and Birds
- Day Six Animals and Mankind
Then came Day Seven – God completed His master creation of our beautiful planet earth in six days – he took a look at his creation, declared it “very good” and stopped his activities, thus Day Seven was created – the Day of rest. In the Jewish tradition, according to the old Testament, the seventh day falls on Saturday and it is called “Shabbat”. The law of Moses states that there was to be no work at all on the seventh day. In the New Testament, the Christian church began to worship and rest on the first day of the week, Sunday. And so our Sunday gives us the opportunity to relax, enjoy, rejuvenate, reflect, get involved in activities we do not have the time to participate in during the week.
This #Sunday, #July 23, 2017 various festivals and events are taking place in Toronto which may want to part take in.

Maple Leaf Forever: Toronto’s Take on a National Symbol
This artifact-rich exhibition will explore how Torontonians have helped shape the maple leaf as Canada’s leading national symbol over the past 150 years. From the Prince of Wales’ visit to Toronto just prior to Confederation to the use of the maple leaf in commercial and industrial branding throughout the 20th century, Torontonians have forged close associations between the maple leaf as an icon and a source of identity. This exhibit is presented as part of TO Canada with Love, the City of Toronto’s year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions honouring Canada’s 150th birthday. http://www.toronto.ca/marketgallery
