During our two Sunday morning services we use traditional language at 9 oclock and at 10:30 more contemporary forms. Our music reflects a variety of styles and instruments from harp to trumpets, guitars and keyboard, along with our newly rebuilt organ, led by a talented choir. Dedicated teachers staff our Sunday Church School and there is a special program for teens. We also have a growing number of young adults, including students, attracted by our welcoming atmosphere and inclusive attitudes.Rev. Cheryl's Message for October 15, 2017 Welcome! Arent human beings complicated creatures? God has given us the ability to remember our past and anticipate our future but this awareness of time often gives rise to our inability to stay in the present. The Israelites in todays reading have been without Moses leadership for almost 40 days and they are beginning to think he will never return. Their anxiety about this makes it almost impossible for them to stay in the moment. Their search for certainty leads them to make a huge mistake. They ask Aaron to fashion them gods to worship, gods they hope will quiet their fears. But these gods of their own creation cannot do that and instead their quest for certainty brings them into crisis.
We live in a society that finds it hard to stay present. The news cycle feeds our anxiety and fuels fears of division and war. Like the Israelites we often want to escape to a world of our own making. Many of us use ways to escape that are ultimately harmful. Yet how we escape lifes tensions is less important than realizing we do so to our own detriment. The Christian community is a place in which we can bring our fears about tomorrow and our anxieties about today. Together we can breathe in Gods presence, pray for one another, gain strength and renew our souls. We can return to our places of living with a sense that God is with us. We can bring our courage to others and in so doing strengthen the fabric of our communities. That is no small thing. Thanks be to God!Rev. Cheryl's Message for October 22, 2017 Welcome! This weekend the Synod of the Diocese of QuAppelle meets to consider the work of this diocese over the next three years. Synod (from the Greek synodus or synodus which means gathering or assembly) is a reminder to us that we as a congregation are part of a larger church. Lay and clergy delegates from all the parishes in the diocese meet together to consider how the work of local churches can be supported, what the priorities are for our diocesan region and what are key areas of ministry at the national level of the Anglican Church of Canada. When gatherings such as this work at their best we leave them more fully aware of our connections to brothers and sisters in Christ across QuAppelle and the country.
God has created us to be in relationship with one another and to the Holy One. We see this today in Moses conversation with God, in Pauls writing to the church in Thessalonika and in Jesus debate with the Pharisees. Even when we dont understand one another (or God), even when we deal with contentious issues, we are connected. That is why it is so important to gather in community, listen to the wisdom of the Scriptures, pray for one another and consider together who we are as Gods people. We do in small groups during the 100 Days of Discernment. We do so week by week in worship. And we do so in regional and national synods. By meeting in this way we broaden our understanding and deepen our ability to respond as Christs church. Pray today for those meeting in Synodas we will pray for you!
