Moment for Trinity – Tuesday February 22 , 2022

Here is the video for the Trinity moment for this week:

We hold in our prayers Marguerite and we’re grateful she has angels with her.
We hold in our prayers the people of the Ukraine and other Eastern European countries as they face an uncertain future with the possibility of war.

Friday March 4th, 2022 has been designated as the World Day of Prayer for 2022 when Christians from over 170 countries are coming together in spirit, uniting on a common day to pray for relevant issues affecting women and children. The World Day of Prayer is a global ecumenical movement which brings Christians of many traditions together to observe a common day of prayer each year. The movement has been active for nearly 100 years. Each year, a different country prepares the service materials. This year, that grouping consists of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The theme is I know the plans I have for you from the book of Jeremiah.WICC (Women’s Inter-church Council of Canada) has once again prepared an online service.It is available on their website.

FAQ about Sabbaticals: What is a Sabbatical? The United Church provides for a 3 month sabbatical to all ministry personnel who have served 5 years in one pastoral charge. It is paid time away to renew, rest, recreate, learn and grow. A plan is developed and a report given on return. The ministry personnel must stay for at least one year after a sabbatical.

Scripture to ponder for the week: Psalm 92: It is wonderful to be grateful and to sing your praises, Lord Most High! It is wonderful each morning to tell about your love and at night to announce how faithful you are. I enjoy praising your name to the music of harps, because everything you do makes me happy, and I sing joyful songs.

Scripture for February 28, 2022: Exodus 34:29-35; Psalm 99; 2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2; Luke 9:28-36

On this last Sunday in the season after the Epiphany we are reminded we are not alone, we are chosen, and called to listen for God’s voice, for God’s call in our lives. Have you encountered God in foggy, confusing times? When have you seen the light of God shining through a friend, an experience, or an event?
