Greetings! Below you will find information on Harrow as well as some programs and information from some of our neighbours.
We hope this finds you well and ‘hanging in there’ – we are all celebrating the warmer weather and the arrival of vaccines – but of course, patience is in order before we will know the fullness of spring or the freedom for which we long.
Church Council news
Our Church Council met this past week.
A date was set for the annual meeting of the congregation: April 18
Significant conversations revolved around how well we are keeping in touch with the congregation, how we could do more/better, and how well we are reaching out beyond the congregation during the pandemic. If you have thoughts or ideas to share, please be in touch.
Back by popular demand with COVID creativity.
Sunday, March 14 will be our second Souper Sunday of 2021
Our presenter will be Sherry Heppner from the Convalescent Home of Winnipeg. On Sunday March 14, Sherry will join us for a conversation on Zoom. This will be a great opportunity to hear what life has been like at the Convalescent Home in recent months, as well as a chance to talk about ways that Harrow can be supportive of the residents and staff in these times.
As always, a variety of soups will be available, along with biscuits. If you can donate a soup, please be in touch with Shirley, Susan, or the church office (email@example.com ; phone: 204-284-0079). We will send a message with the ‘menu’ of available soups and instructions to order for delivery or pick up.
Preparing to renew or make a commitment to God, Jesus, church …
I have called you by your name, you are mine. I have gifted you and ask you now to shine. [More Voices # 161]
I will be meeting with any interested individuals who would like to prepare for confirmation or re-affirmation of faith. Not sure what this means? I’d be glad to have a conversation and provide more information if you’re curious. We are aiming for Easter as the date for confirmation/reaffirmation of faith.
Readings in preparation for our meeting this week: Pages 6-92 (John 3:22-5:47)
Program from our neighbours at Crescent Fort Rouge United Church:
Indigenous Lenten Series: Ahogichipabi New
Wednesdays Feb 24 – Mar 31 2021 at 7:30 PM MST. Join us during this Lenten season as we explore Christ’s journey into the desert and the connection this has to Indigenous spiritual traditions: the 7 sacred teachings of the Assiniboine and the Vision Quest. We will examine the intercultural traditions found in Indigenous Christian theology and how this impacts our spiritual formation and worldview today. Sponsored by the Chinook Winds Region and the Urban Indigenous Circle. Click here for the Facebook event. The Zoom link is here. Contact Tony Snow for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Till next week,
(Rev.) Teresa Moysey
