Welcome

"Live Your Mission"

Our generosity transforms lives. On this World Food Day Sunday we consider how our gifts to Mission & Service and local community food ministries help end hunger.

The Wisdom of Matthew 13:1-9 (Parable of the Sower) affirms, together, we are "daring a difference, one act of kindness at a time."

Visions in the Cloud – October 10

Welcome

Gratitude and Anxiety

It’s Thanksgiving week, and we have much to be thankful for in our lives. Yet news of Covid restrictions and being unable to be with our friends and family has us anxious and dispirited. How can we show gratitude when our lives are turned upside down? We turn to Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 6: 25-33 for wisdom.

"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.

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.

"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:
