    Jolted! (November 4, 2018)


    Jolted!/November 4, 2018

    In this talk, Peter Fitch begins with the story of Jesus sleeping in the boat. He alludes to several classical references to this story from Thérèse de Lisieux and George Herbert, but the main ideas are from a book by Peter Steinke called, Congregational Leadership in Times of Anxiety: Being Calm and Courageous No Matter What. This book uses Bowen Theory to help people see the need for “differentiation”, thoughtful, reflective, principled and self-aware responses in anxious times.
    Extra materials…. Hozier – Nina Cried Power and a clip from the kids time today.

    Holding Hope (October 28, 2018)


    Holding Hope/October 28, 2018

    Jessica Williams, one of our favourite poets, gave this morning’s talk. She is visiting from Winnipeg and we were thrilled to have her speak to us. The focus is about the beauty and the sadness that co-exist in our lives and circumstances. It culminates in a personalized reading of Psalm 42. Beauty and sadness were both a part of this morning’s experience–it was like we were bathing in the thing she was describing. Earlier in the morning our worship singers, Geordie Hull and Gwen Bilsky, shared a song, Carry On, by Reuelle and Fleurie that corresponded with Jess’ talk in some meaningful ways. Here’s a link to the song’s video.
