Photo-a-day Advent Spiritual Practice

Take a photo each day using these words as a prompt for reflection. Use your photo as a source of contemplation, Visio Divina. If moved, share it on social media using the hashtags. Gratitude to Rev. Catherine MacDonald who created these word prompts from the stories we will read from Luke's gospel this season. (printed copies of this postcard are available Sunday)

Visions in the Cloud – Nov 19

10:30am - Café Church

This is an opportunity for adults to gather for music, reflection and conversation in Café style. We wrap-up our theme, "I've Been meaning to Ask...Conversations with Curiosity, Courage, Connection."

Zoom instead of Livestream: There is no livestream this week. Instead we invite you to join by zoom. Bring your coffee/tea and join the conversation with other zoom participants.

The Zoom link was sent out with our week mailer, so refer to that for details.


Please note: 

  • Conversation Café starts later this week at 10:15, and will be in the Grand Room as part of the Spirit Gathering.
  • There is no children's program on Sunday morning this week. (Families are invited to join us for Supper Church)


Supper Church for All Ages - 3:30-5:30ish

This gathering is an informal, participatory gathering especially for children and their families. In the style of ‘messy church’ we will gather for story, song, creative expression, and food! Kid-friendly supper of pizza provided. (Donations welcome/pay-as-you-can).

Visions in the Cloud – Nov 05

Where do we go from here?

This week we engage the final question of our series: "Where do we go from here?" This final question invites us to foster hope and imagination whenever we find ourselves on the threshold of something new. We hear the story of Naomi and Ruth and remind ourselves what it means to walk alongside each other into new beginnings. (Ruth 1:1-22)
