TRC Call to Prayer

Father God,
We thank You for this great nation we live in and for the rich heritage of Aboriginal peoples.  We pray not only for new Canadians, but that all Canadians will learn about and respect the Treaty Agreements.  May we be a country that respects each other and honours one another.   Amen                   Context:   TRC Call to Action #94

 

Adult Sunday School
Schedule

September 24   Social Construction of Science – related to postmodernism, but an attack on science and the idea that science is a rational description of reality.

October 1   Hymn Sing

 

Between now and Advent this year, several of our worship services will focus on the theme "Poets and Prophets."  Do you read poetry?  Do you have a favorite poet?  Is there a poet that you find particularly effective, or offensive(!) as they interact with faith and culture?  Talk to Tim Rhymer about these ideas.

In His Own Words: How Paul Penner Came to Canada

Just months before Paul Penner passed away in 2013, he was interviewed by a university student about his life in Chortitza, Russia, and his event-filled departure from that Mennonite town in 1941, with a sojourn in Poland and Germany before his arrival in Canada in 1948.  We will listen to the audio recording of his story and hear some excerpts from his memoir.
