Wyman Memorial United Church and Cote St. Charles United Churches are inclusive welcoming churches. We also reach outside to collaborate with other communities of faith and to help individuals and communities in need who would welcome our participation and support.

Our faith is rooted in the teachings of Christ. We cherish our spiritual development and Wyman’s important role in it because it serves to explain, enrich and guide our role in this world as Christians striving to live our faith. We come together to a place where we can learn about our faith, a place where we can be listened to without being judged, a place where we can get in touch with our inner thoughts and feelings in peace, a place where we can seek understanding and support when we need and want it.

Our challenge is to live our faith and to give reality to our Mission Statement.

Mary and Martha.

This story of Jesus visiting with the two of them has gotten a lot of attention.

We are drawn to look at Mary, as she sits and listens to the teacher, to Jesus.

It is an important image in several ways.
First is the way contained in the phrase I just used:
“As she sits and listens to the teacher, to Jesus.”
Quite shocking for the time:
“She listened” - in that time, it was the men who were expected to listen to the teachers. And teachers were expected to spend time with the men.
