Weekly Message December 20

Watch this week’s Worship here:

This fourth week of advent we light the candle of Love.

The ways in which we’ve been expressing our love – for family, for neighbours, for friends, for the environment, maybe even for God – have undergone some creative transformations over the past months, and I’m sure we will continue to create new traditions over the next few months.

Our church community is no different – we have some traditions that are undergoing transformation:

Our Longest Night/Blue Christmas worship will be a live event via Zoom. Monday, December 21st at 7 pm  

The service will include lighting candles for people or situations that are particularly in our hearts and on our minds. You may wish to prepare by having a candle to light at home. Anyone is welcome to join us – please pass along this invitation to others whom you think might find it helpful.

The Zoom link is:


Christmas Eve worship will be posted on December 24th. Watch for a second email this week with the link for that service once it is ready.

Sunday, December 27

Sunday, December 27 there will be no worship service posted. Instead we are going to have an extended Zoom call open from 10:30 to noon. Check in anytime. The zoom link will be on our website and in the weekly message. Instead of our usual “Christmas around the Brunch Table” – since we can’t gather in person, we’re inviting folks to gather virtually – and share brunch. Maybe Derek will even provide instructions on how to make those wonderful Eggs Benedict he usually serves us …

It is with tender sorrow that we announce the passing of Gladys Lowry. Gladys died on December 13th at the age of 91.

The sympathy of the Harrow community is extended to her son Arthur, daughter-in-law Janice, grandchildren David and Ashley and their families. A service of remembrance will be planned for 2021.

The sympathy of the Harrow community is also extended to Kristine Cox and the Vandale family on the accidental death of Kristine’s brother William Magnusson (Uncle Billy).

Our thoughts and prayers are very much with you.

Until Christmas, may you keep attuned to angel songs, and may the gifts of the season – hope, peace, joy and love – be with each of you, and be the gifts you share with others.


(Rev.) Teresa Moysey
