This Week at Worship

Good day to you.

 

It's good to be back after a week of staycation. However, it wasn't a true staycation. I did travel as far south as Osgoode on Easter Sunday to offer a bit of ministry after worship with a stop for a late lunch with Roger siting on a park bench overlooking the river in Manotick. And, I travelled as far west as Carp last Saturday where I met up with Roger for lunch. He cycled there while I, given my broken (but healing) left foot, drove. It was a good week of much needed rest after a very full Holy Week.

 

I mostly spent my week off going for short walks, planning summer projects, getting my first jab of the vaccine and giving witness to new and resurrected life emerging from God's creation. Magnolia trees are in blossom while other trees are beginning to leaf out and tulips and daffodils are either popping up through the soil or are now in bloom. And then there is the joy of hearing Canada geese singing (that is what we call their 'honks' isn't it?) as they fly overhead and the beautiful chatter and song of birds. This is my favourite time of year. As I said to someone Thursday morning, you must get outside to hear the new life that is all around us and to take in the scent of God's springtime earth - it is heavenly especially as much needed rain falls.

 

You are invited to gather this Third Sunday of Easter for virtual worship at 10:30 a.m. In hymns, scripture, prayers and words we celebrate the Risen Christ who is among and within us. Mary Hagerman shall be reading scripture and Paul Arnold will be offering music including a special "Easter Hallelujah" at the end of worship. To that end, "Worship at Home" materials are here. Please come.

 

Virtual Connection details will be emailed to you.

 

Hope to see or hear your voice this Sunday, the Third Sunday of Easter.

May God bless you now and always.
