This Week at Worship

Good day to you. This Sunday is the Second Sunday of Advent and we are invited to gather at worship. Trinity worships at 9:30 a.m. (with Sunday school) and St. James at 11 a.m.

 

Our Scripture readings are from the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 11, verses 1 through 10 and the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 3, verses 1 through 12. Our readings speak of living a different way - both in how we live out our lives in the world and how we live our inward lives as people of faith. Isaiah offers a vision of a world that is one of justice and peace, where those who have power use it justly and look to share that power with those who have none. In our reading from Matthew, John the Baptizer urges people to choose a better way, to turn towards God and work for God's peace and justice in the world. My sermon is titled "Undergoing a Spiritual Adjustment." Let's explore God's living words together this Sunday.

 

This Sunday, we shall light the Second Advent Candle, the Candle of Peace, and today I think about how we long for peace in our lives, our relationships, our world. Today is the National Day of Remembrance and Action to End Violence Against Women. On December 6, 1989 14 women studying at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal were massacred because they were female. We remember them. We remember all women and girls affected by violence. There is no place for gender-based violence in our world nor in God's world. We must keep working for a time when such a world exists - one that is a world of equality, justice and peace for all.

 

 

Have a good end of week and a relaxing weekend. See you Sunday.
