w the song of angels and discover a newborn baby. We are drawn into a story bigger than our own 2 meters of personal space. Wonder is awakened in us. We find ourselves part of a much larger and more mysterious epic. And we discover that we are not alone.
Those who are deeply affected by news of children in unmarked graves at the sites of former Indian Residential Schools.
All those affected by the strain of providing medical care in the midst of the pandemic and the tremendous stress on our health care system. THANK YOU to all who are working under such challenging circumstances.
Our prayers are also with those who are grieving, those who are ill, and those who are living in the midst of fear, violence, hunger, oppression or danger, whether they be near to us or far away.
Many thanks to all those who made for a wonderful online meeting of over 200 people from the Prairie to Pine region of the United Church of Canada May 28-30th. Our worship this week includes some of the richness that was part of that meeting. We hope you enjoy it.
Two thousand years ago, a fragile community was very uncertain of what the future held. They were at an ‘in-between’ time – between knowing Jesus and travelling in his company, and sorting out what they would yet become.
Building solid foundations takes time and care … in our lives, in how we teach our children, in our institutions and our societies. The storm of pandemic has exposed the infrastructure – good or bad – of many in the past year.
