Moment from Trinity for Tuesday March 2, 2021

Here is the short video from Elizabeth to accompany this message:  https://youtu.be/91grv_rH7EM

This Sunday, March 7th, we are celebrating communion. Bring a candle, a piece of bread (cracker, bun, something to eat) and something to drink (grape, orange, apple juice or water) and celebrate with us.

We received the sad news this week that Robinson Mulundu died February 25 in Zambia. We hold Phillis and their families in our prayers. A zoom service to celebrate Robinson’s life was held on Saturday February 27th and I attended on behalf of Trinity. It was put together by his family. There were so many pictures of Robinson at so many important/everyday events, we believe he was the “Bernie Sanders” before Bernie Sanders!
Also, be sure to check out the article about Phillis and Mwaka (her daughter) in Monday’s Free Press; who knew Phillis would run a marathon? What a great inspiration for all of us!

Here are the readings for this Sunday March 7, 2021 and the one we’re focusing on are in bold: Exodus 20:1-17; Psalm 19; 1 Corinthians 1:18-25; John 2:13-22

We are planning Palm Sunday, Good Friday and Easter services and need “voices” for the worship service as readers; if you’d like to add your voice to the worship service, please be in touch with Irma or Elizabeth; if you’ve never done this before, we can help walk you through the process.

Action Auction starts on Saturday March 6th at 12 noon! Watch for the email tomorrow with details about registration and bidding along with the catalogue of everything on offer! Questions? Call Dale Kendel

We are looking for a few volunteers to help us pack up the smaller items in the sanctuary and office so the larger items (book shelves, etc) can be moved by the carpet people. If you have an hour or two from now until March 12th and would like to help out, please be in touch with the office (204 269 1632) or Irma or Elizabeth. If you have some boxes to loan us (we really would give them back!), we could use a few more. We will keep all distancing, sanitizing and contact tracing protocols in place to keep you safe. Thank you!

 March 5, 2021 is the World Day of Prayer. Every year a different church hosts this event. This year Fort Garry Mennonite Fellowship is the host for Fort Garry churches. As meeting in person is not possible this year, a video recording has been made available so that you can participate from wherever you are. For many years Elaine Hansen and Connie Fillion have represented TUC as planners for this event. We thank them for their years of dedication to this important day with the hope that next year we will be able to meet in person once again. An email with more information about this event will be going out on Friday. To view the World Day of Prayer service click here

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.

Here is the short video from Elizabeth to accompany this message: https://youtu.be/GKW6SJeKyHw

Here are the readings for this Sunday February 28, 2021 and the one we’re focusing on are in bold: Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16; Psalm 22:23-31; Romans 4:13-25; Luke 15:11-32

This Sunday we welcome Dr. Neil Craton, author of the book, Wisdom from the Homeless. You might remember that Dr. Craton was to come to worship last March but was cancelled when our building closed. On the invitation from the Outreach and Worship Committees, Dr. Craton offers his message virtually in worship this Sunday.

The season of Lent is here and we are looking for families to record the Lenten Candle lighting from their homes. It will be very similar to Advent Candle lighting. If you’d like to take part, please be in touch with Elizabeth or Irma. If you’ve not recorded before, we can help you learn this new skill! Any number of voices can take part (2 to ??) and any age.

I’ve included a Lent calendar that we sent out to the children and youth; it’s good for adults too! Take a look and see if it might enable your journey through Lent to be more meaningful and thoughtful.

Next Sunday, March 7th, we are celebrating communion. Bring a candle, a piece of bread (cracker, bun, something to eat) and something to drink (grape, orange, apple juice or water) and celebrate with us.

Scripture for the day: (Mark 8:35-36) “He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.”Prayer:  Creator God, we have been gifted an amazing world, a legacy of faith, and a love for the ages…that we are called to sustain and pass to the next generations. 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!
