When Jesus Came To Church

When Jesus Came To Church

January 28, 2018

January 28, 2017 |  In our reading this week from Mark’s gospel Jesus encounters a man with an unclean spirit. In ancient times, mental health issues were often identified with spiritual possession. Something was believed to “take over” a person’s psyche, imprisoning them by forces greater than themselves. While we cannot rule out spirit possession, we know that we are possessed by many things that need to be cast out. Virtually all of us have behaviours that we struggle with that are large and small. We know often what’s best for us, but often also succumb to temptation. Like the man in the story, we need assistance from an energy and wisdom greater than our own.​

Follow Me

Follow Me

Jan 21, 2018 | This week we hear the call of the first four disciples from Mark’s gospel. After forty days in the wilderness, Jesus begins his ministry proclaiming the good news of God.  Jesus goes to Simon and Andrew and then James and John and says, “Come follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately, they went and followed Jesus.  There wasn’t a “well let me think about it” or a “let me get permission from this person or that person”, or “will you pay better than what I’m getting right now.”  They just immediately follow Jesus.

Compassion In Our Action

Compassion In Our Action

January 7, 2018 |  This week we hear about Jesus' baptism by John at the river Jordan. Jesus’ baptism invites him to embrace his calling as God’s messenger, teacher, and healer. It is unique to him, and sets him apart as God’s healer and saviour. Yet, is it also possible that it provides us with an opportunity to ponder our own unique vocations to be God’s companions in healing the world?

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

January 2, 2018

December 31, 2017 | May there be reasons to celebrate the closing of this past year.  May there have been places that offered opportunities for growth.  May there have been times for being with family and friends.  May there have been joys to share.

If this past year had moments of grief, may comfort come in the new year.  If this past year had times of challenge, may hope come in the new year.  If this past year had times of difficulty, may peace come in the new year.

Join us on this last Sunday of 2017 as we look ahead to the coming year sharing together in worship and fellowship.
