This Week at Worship

Good morning to you and happy second day of Spring. I totally missed that Thursday was the first day of Spring! I've been wanting it to hurry up and get here for so long that I can't believe I missed its arrival.

 

As you know, worship and church activities are suspended at both Trinity and St. James for the next while. It hurts and I shall miss seeing you in-person. We know this is the right thing to do. In turning to home worship for the coming weeks, we are returning to our roots as followers of Jesus. In the early days of the Jesus movement, people met in small groups in homes and in caves out of fear of persecution by the political authorities of the day.

 

Since we will not be together on Sunday morning, I have prepared worship materials, click here,  that I invite you to use with family members living under your roof or with someone on the phone on Sunday. We are also delivering them by hand (practicing social distancing) to those among us with no email. In the attachment are prayers, scripture readings, a reflection and a suggested worship activity with children (the last page). And know that church is who we are, it's not where we go. I hope you find the attached useful. Feedback would be appreciated.

 

I also share that there are several churches across the country live streaming their Sunday services. Locally, Rideau-Park United Church in Ottawa is livestreaming at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Go here: https://www.rideaupark.ca/ and follow the link to "watch live." Our Moderator, The Right Rev. Richard Bott will also be offering a video-recorded service. Go here: https://www.united-church.ca/community-faith/being-community/worship-online-during-covid-19 and look for the link to the recording (it was not up at the time of writing this note Friday morning).

 

May you have days that are full of moments of joy and laughter.

 

God bless you and keep you.
