Worship for Nov. 6, 2022

Today we remembered the saints, those living or dead who have touched us with the love of God.

We also remembered that we are saints, claimed by God to touch others with that same love of God.

And we thank God for the lives of those who have died in the last year, who have left us, but who have inspired us to claim the promise that death does not have the last word.

Peace be with you all.

Reformation Sunday, 2022

Here are the worship resources we used at our special worship on Sunday, October 30th, in Lunenburg.

This was a joint service with many other Lutherans from throughout Lunenburg County joining us, as well as parishioners from St. John’s Anglican church in Lunenburg (our Full Communion partner).

Also included below is a link to a short video of our ringing of our historic St. Antoine-Marie bell. We started our service with the bell calling to worship, a sound which hasn’t been heard in 50 years!

Peace be with us all as we continue to re-form.

Happy Birthday, Church!

Even as we prepare for Zion Lutheran Church’s 250th anniversary (this coming Sunday), we also remember and celebrate the birthday of the church as a whole, when the Spirit came upon the disciples and began to move them into the community.

Attached below are the prayers, readings and reflections from our Pentecost service on June 5th, 2022.

Peace be with you all!

Prayer Labyrinth for 250!

A Prayer Labyrinth in the Church Garden is one of Zion’s special projects for its 250th anniversary.

A small ground-breaking ceremony is being held tomorrow, Sunday, April 24th, following Sunday service at the church. Construction will start next week.

The labyrinth is a simple, brick pathway through the garden area which symbolizes one’s spiritual journey inward to examine one’s life, and the return spiritual journey to engage the world.

A ribbon-cutting is planned for Sunday, May 29th.

The garden has always been open for all to enjoy, and Zion hopes this improvement will make it a favourite peaceful outdoor space in Lunenburg.

Prayers for Peace

A recording of the ecumenical prayer service held at St. John’s Anglican Church in Lunenburg, in which the Rev. Laura Marie Piotrowicz from St. John’s, Pastor Rick (our parish) and Pastor Tom Summers from St. Andrew’s Presbyterian church, provided the leadership.

Members of Grace Lutheran, Zion Lutheran, St. John’s Anglican, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian and St. Norbert’s Roman Catholic churches were present.

Keep praying, everyone, for the sake of the world.
