Worship for Sept. 19

Here is the liturgy we used on Sunday, September 19. It’s interesting how the readings from the Bible, which we think are all warm and fuzzy, are actually pretty challenging. As long as are paying attention…. Peace be with you all. Worship for September 19, 2021

The Service for July 11, 2021

Hello everyone. 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 weContinue reading “The Service for July 11, 2021”

Prayers for Canada Day, 2021

This year is different. 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 ourContinue reading “Prayers for Canada Day, 2021”

Worship for June 27, 2021

Hello everyone! Welcome to worship. 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.

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, weContinue reading “Worship for June 20, 2021”

Worship for June 6, 2021

Welcome to worship. This has been a difficult week. We are still overwhelmed by the news from Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc (known by Settlers as Kamloops, British Columbia). What should also overwhelm us is the fact that much of this damage was done by the church. In the name of Jesus. That’s how we justified it,Continue reading “Worship for June 6, 2021”

Prayers for the Children

We are horrified. Two hundred and fifteen children, buried in a mass grave, with no marker, no recognition, and most with no notice to family. This is wrong on so many levels that the mind reels. I am under no illusion that these prayers will somehow make this better. Or give us understanding of whatContinue reading “Prayers for the Children”
