Yes, we are back “in church,” and holding “in person services” again. Do note that we are still required to wear masks at all time while inside, we are required to remain physically distant, and we cannot yet sing during worship.
That being said, we can gather, and it’s amazing how, if we are open to it, that simple fact can make a huge difference.
Here is the liturgy we used on Sunday morning at Zion (and also at Grace Lutheran Church in First South).
The town of Lunenburg, along with many other communities, has cancelled its plans for Canada Day this year, out of respect for our Indigenous neighbours, and the trauma of confirming the stories of their children who were “disappeared.”
Join us as we pray for our country, as we pray for our leaders, as we pray for the victims of racism, and as we seek healing for all people.
You may also read the letter that our National Bishop Susan Johnson has written for this occasion. See it here.
A quick announcement. We might be able to gather this coming Sunday (July 4, 2021) for in-person worship at Grace and Zion churches, but this decision has not yet been made. It depends on the decision of the Provincial government on whether to move to “Phase Three” of the re-opening plan.
The councils of both congregations will be in touch with the membership as soon as possible, to inform you all of our next steps.
Thanks for your patience!
Here is the video for our Sunday service. Peace be with you all!
Yes, we are still worshipping on-line, for now. No date has been set for when we will be gathering for in-person services (we have decided to wait until the Province goes to “Stage 3”), but we can see light at the end of the tunnel.
In the mean time, we hear the story of Jesus calming the storm. But there’s a twist in this version of the story.
And we pray that we would be open to the twists that Jesus brings, even if they make us a bit uncomfortable….
