Greetings From the Minister's Desk For October

Rev. Anne HepburnBy the time you read this, we will almost be at Thanksgiving weekend.

On Thanksgiving we will celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism and give thanks for the new life which is always fun to see in church!

Thanksgiving weekend is one of my favourites: the change of colours, the fresh air, the family gathering- all delicious!

However, while a secular holiday too, Thanksgiving is a time of great theological significance in the church.

We give thanks almost every Sunday simply by showing up at church.

We give thanks when we gather because every Sunday is a mini Easter- a recognition that Jesus‘ resurrection grounds our faith tradition.

We give thanks on Sundays for the presence of the Holy in our lives, inspiring us to be better people.

We give thanks in our prayers for the inspiration of Jesus who was always looking out for those on the margins.

We give thanks for his loving embrace of all in need.

We give thanks for his intelligence and willingness to challenge the powerful elites.

Finally we give thanks for the love that is within and around us, supporting us at all times.

Bendithion / Blessings

Rev Anne
