Worship Service – July 26, 2020

This Sunday: We live, these days, in such a goal oriented, purpose driven, control minded society, it’s hard to imagine that anything important could happen without human initiative. Perhaps, during these days of summer, Jesus’ message might be to step back and trust that there is a will for good operating in our world that is not subject to our control.
Readings: Psalm 119:129-136; Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52
This reflection is from Steinbach United Church. 

Worship Service – May 31, 2020

This Sunday: Pentecost – the rush of wind and fire and no destruction! It was a day of celebration and chaos and confusion. Can you be drunk at 9:00 in the morning and still be wise? Can you learn languages in an instant? What happened that day? What happens today when you encounter the Spirit? Can words explain it or is it just a stunning, warm feeling? Let’s talk about it.
Readings: Acts 2:1-21; Psalm 104: 24-34, 35b

This Sunday, we will celebrate the sacrament of communion. For that you need to be prepared with something to eat (bread or a cracker work fine) and something to drink (juice, water, milk, or tea will all be appropriate, even wine.)
