Worship Themes

 

bible imageAs part of the weekly sermon process, Rev. McColl sends the congregation a "Theology Tuesday" email which includes Sunday's upcoming Scripture along with a little insight into the Scripture. It also includes a question inviting everyone to share his or her thoughts.

The great thing about the sermon process is that it is not meant to be done in a vacuum. The sermon is a story, made up of our collective insights, thoughts and experiences. The sermon is an opportunity for all of us to share where we have seen God that week and was never meant to be a one-way conversation. Heather has really enjoyed and been inspired by everyone's responses. The responses have helped her think of the Scriptures in new ways and has definitely helped her think outside of the box.

"Theology Tuesday"is also posted on the church Facebook page.


2018 Advent Theme:

Advent theme imageEach December, as we begin our Advent journey to Bethlehem, the days grow shorter and the light which surrounds us begins to fade. The darkness seems to grow more and more with each passing day, bringing fear to our hearts. Yet, instead of allowing this fear to take root and overwhelm us, we turn towards Creation because "the roots of Advent run deep beneath the Christian Church….to the earth and its seasons. It is through our connection to Creation where we rediscover the essential rhythms of life. It is there where we experience the wisdom of God. It is there where we are reminded that "when that primal fear of the dark…begins to slide over us, [creation] offers us unfearful responses. [It] takes in the threat of dark and cold and adapts in amazing and ingenious ways. [Creation] shapes itself to life as it is given." All Creation waits, reminding us that the "dark is not an end, but a door. This is the way a new beginning comes."
