Moment from Trinity – November 3, 2020

Here is the short video to accompany this message:

We welcome and thank Rev. Paul Campbell and Harry Johnson for their participation in the “Moment” for this week. A thoughtful and engaging moment from two deep, faithful thinkers.I’ve attached the written version of the conversation.

If you have an idea for a place/thought/conversation for the “Moment”, please be in touch.

Here are the readings for this Sunday November 8, 2020 and the one we’re focusing on is in bold: Joshua 3:7-17; Psalm 107:1-7,33-37; 1 Thessalonians 2:9-13; Matthew 23:1-12.

As all cenotaph services are cancelled and some are going online, this Sunday November 8th we offer a service of Remembrance on this 75th anniversary of the ending of World War II. We invite you to think of your loved ones who took part in this or any war as we gather (virtually) to remember. We will be celebrating communion so please have a candle, a piece of bread, bun, cracker and something to drink (grape, apple, orange juice or water) to celebrate with us. 

Because of the Provincial Health order on October 30th, the Executive decided to continue to postpone in person, indoor worship, and close the building to all user and church groups; staff will be in for specific tasks but mainly working from home; all home visits are postponed until further notice. Be safe and be well.

Elizabeth is on study leave October 29 to November 4th taking an online course, “Saints, soldiers and angels” by Rev. Catherine MacLean and Rev. John Young, based on the book, Preaching the Big Questions: Doctrine Isn’t Dusty. Rev. Paul Campbell is on call and can be reached through the church office.Scripture for the day: (Psalm 82:2-4) “How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Give justice to the weak and orphan; maintain the right of the lowly and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”

Prayer for the week: Loving God, in the midst of change and change and change again, we are so in need of your spirit to calm our hearts, bring joy to our lives, comfort when we are anxious, and inspire us to be your people in the world. With your strength, we rise each day, ready to face life in all its fullness. Let us breathe your spirit deep within ourselves, bringing us your light and love. Amen.

May blessing, peace and the knowledge that we are not alone on this journey; may God be a part of our week as we wander through our challenging days and evenings, knowing the spirit of God is part of all our experiences! May we all remember God in a way that keeps us going and be strong and be kind, loving and compassionate.
