Visions in the Cloud – Sept 26

Welcome

"Songs for the Journey"

Everyday we make a journey in faith. Sometimes this journey takes us into the interior landscape of our minds and hearts, sometimes outward into the world. This week we turn to a small collection of Psalms known as the Pilgrimage Psalms (Psalms 120-134). We consider the well known verses of Psalm 121, reminding us that wherever we find ourselves on this journey of life, God is, indeed, holding our lives.

09-24 Community Hub Update

The construction site at 140 Joyce Avenue continues to be a busy place!
Have you had the chance to drive by? Here are a couple recent updates.

The apartments are complete and this week residents began moving in!

The walkway entrance to the hub is installed. (Note: the wooden railing is temporary until the permanent railing is installed.) The parking lot is graded and ready for paving.

The major pieces that need completion before the Hub side of the building can open are the stairwells, the flooring in the Multi-purpose room, the audio-visual system and the kitchen.

Visions in the Cloud – Sept 19

"In God Alone"

In this age where the news seems to be bad and getting worse, where do we place our faith? This week, we examine two Wisdom Psalms that bolster our faith and our trust in God. We take comfort in the knowledge God's Love is always holding us.

Visions in the Cloud – Sept 12

Welcome

"Singing the Blues"

There are times in our lives when we feel disoriented, we lose our bearings, our heart is heavy, our faith wavers. Psalms of Lament honour these moments with a song. This week we continue our exploration of the Psalms and consider how the spiritual practice of lament nurtures compassionate awareness for self and others. Even when we are 'singing the blues', God's Love keeps holding us.

We've been using some music by Richard Bruxvoort Colligan in this series. Listen to his piece "Desert Blues", a contemporary lament psalm, here:

"Singing our Gratitude"
The Book of Psalms offers a song for many moments along life's journey. This week we turn to Psalms of Thanksgiving as we consider the importance of practicing gratitude. We give thanks for all the ways God's Love keeps holding us during this pandemic. Watch for the special video of voices of our Visions' friends "Praying the ABC's of Gratitude"!
