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.

This Sunday of Advent is designated as:

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.

We have been doing a lot behind the scenes, but the transition has now begun in a real sense.
Until new notice, there are no services at the Côte Church. All activites are being held at Wyman Memorial United Church, 513 Main Road in Hudson - this includes Christmas services.

At this time, in preparation for renovation, the Côte church is not available for services. At the time of writing, in November, many items, including furniture, have been removed for safe storage.
