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.


Tree of Life logoOur Lenten theme this year is "The Tree of Life - Source of Healing and Growth for a Renewed Creation".

Over the course of this series, we will take a look at the seven sacred truths which are associated with the Tree of Life. Each of these seven truths hold universal meaning and relate to the work of healing and wholeness of the wider community. These truths ground us. They connect us. They stretch us and inspire us to reach towards the heavens. Join us in our call to "till and keep" the garden as we experience the greening power which join us all to the Tree of Life.

Topic: "God’s Trees - Trees in the Bible and In Our Lives". This is an introduction to the importance of trees in the Bible, but also focuses on the same trees in our lives. 

March 17, 2019
Topic: " The Parable of the Nine Botanists". This is a true story about plant diversity and the self-sacrifice of nine botanists during the Second World War. It is very much a Lenten presentation based on Isaiah 58.
