Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 19/01/2020 - 16:00 Other (see text)

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.

All are encouraged to attend to show that we are people of one faith.

A Sunday Reflection:

Sunday, January 5, 2020

This reading was done responsively with the leader reading the questioning, and the community responding with the verses from John 1.

John 1:1-10; 14

In the very, very beginning - it really seems that we don’t know what was. Nothing had gone bang. And we can’t tell what was happening before that. Really, even in science, it is only what happened at the bang and beyond that really matters. At the »» marks, the slides were advanced to cue the community in their reading.

A Sunday Reflection:

Sunday, December 15, 2019

This Sunday of Advent is designated as:
Joy.

Once again, though, the reading from the Hebrew scriptures throws us back to the terrible time of the exile in Babylon.
The people were 900km from home.

That was taking the direct route.
Straight through scorching wilderness.
Risking days of no water.
The silent threat of dehydration and heat exhaustion.
Days, weeks of possible attack by wild animals

900 km from home.

A month of walking - with no certainty of where the next source of water might be, because there was no road.
