Dear Visions Friends,
We will be cancelling our Spirit Gathering tomorrow, March 15th, and the remaining Sundays in March.
We will keep you updated as new decisions emerge.
Your leadership executive made the decision this afternoon in concert with most of our sister United Churches in Moncton/Riverview. The consensus is to suspend worship services in response to the requests made by Public Health and The United Church of Canada to practice social distancing in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In case of pastoral emergency please contact Rev. Shawn Redden directly by phone or email (506-588-0326 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will email you in the coming week with an update of how we will seek to keep in touch as a faith community over these coming days and weeks, and offer each other spiritual support and prayer.
Please hold in prayer all those working in our health care system, our government decision makers, and especially the most vulnerable in our community and world, who because of health challenges or life circumstances face particular insecurity at this time.
Please see attached "A Ritual of Prayer and Reflection" from Rev. Shawn Redden, offered so we may gather with each other "in spirit" tomorrow, March 15th.
Your CLT Executive,
Jim Slupsky, Anna Peters, Cecil Briggs, Peter Lightfoot, John Russell, Terry Hawkes, Rev. Shawn Redden.
