Moment from Trinity – November 10, 2020

Here is the short video to accompany this message: https://youtu.be/3vtsq8Fv4uo

Thank you to the congregation for the lovely flowers dropped off by Harry (M&P liaison) this week; they are beautiful and remind me of the beautiful people who are part of the ministry of Trinity – what a smile was on my face behind my mask! I am grateful to all …

Lesley (from England), after participating in worship, was inspired and sent this link of a special collaboration between the Military Wives Choirs and Westminster City Council to commemorate one of the most poignant centenaries of World War One: the burial of the Unknown Warrior: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4J-oP1esgt4&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR3m1f28Zh0r_7H_kC5P-M0usj4_KXEhElMOM4rXTB3OyxTHDjY7Z2NlVfY

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 15, 2020 and the one we’re focusing on is in bold: Judges 4:1-7; Psalm 123; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11; Matthew 25:14-30.

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. We’ll communicate the new information announced today with the worship on Thursday.

Broadview Magazine: It’s time to order or renew our subscriptions – $25 for one year.  Please drop off cash or cheque payable to Trinity United Church or mail to 933 Summerside Ave. Winnipeg,  R3T 4Y1

We are collecting fruit and granola bars for West Broadway Community Ministry. The cart will be outside to collect items Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday 9-11am.

Folks are asking about the United Church “Gifts with Vision” catalogue for ethical, creative Christmas giving this year that supports the United Church Mission and Service Fund locally or globally; it’s your choice. It’s all online here: giftswithvision.ca . Browse the catalogue, choose your gift, and send a card to the recipient. Plus, you receive a charitable donation receipt for income tax this year!

Items to note:

Bible Study: Monday evenings 7-8pm on zoom

Holy Yoga: Saturdays at 10am and Mondays at 3pm on zoom

Trinity Walkers: Come take a morning one hour walk with your friends from Trinity! Each Tuesday and Thursday at 9-10am, we’ll choose a different walk in our area to explore. Both days are the same walk. November 10 & 12: Linden Woods.  Parking in my visitor parking at 873 Waverley St (behind the A&W) or street parking on Lindenwood Drive near Avon Gate (this if you are interested in not walking as far)

Stewardship packages have been emailed last week and sent by mail to everyone without email. Please consider your commitment to Trinity and return the form by Nov 15th. If you have envelopes left over from this year, you can scratch out the date and continue to use them or contact Irma (irma.tuc@mymts.net) if you need more envelopes. If you’d like a 3/4 statement of your givings, please contact the office (tuc@mymts.net) or leave a message on the phone (204 269 1632).

Scripture for the day: (Wisdom of Solomon 6:12) “”Wisdom is radiant and unfading, and she is easily discerned by those who love her, and is found by those who seek her.”

Prayer for the week: Loving God, in the midst of fear and uncertainty, you are with us. In the midst of joy and celebration, you are with us. In the midst of the fight for justice for all, you are with us. In the midst of the diversity of our world, you are with us. And we are grateful.  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.

Elizabeth
