Selahs in the Summer (June 28-September 13)

July 5th we began our Selahs in the Summer series where we will be looking at Psalms: the prayer and songbook of the Bible. The psalms exemplify deeply honest yet still faithful prayers to God, they are full of poetic language which amplifies, repeats and alludes to concepts that may be foreign to us. We will be attentive to the repetition, cultural context and the larger than life language used in the psalms to see how it gives rich language to people in a range of seasons in their lives. In addition, as the prayer and songbook that Jesus used, we will turn to the Psalms to see the Gospels come alive in a deeper way and notice more Jesus’ daily presence in our lives.

Welcoming the Stranger (April 12-June 21)

Throughout the Bible, God calls his people to provide justice to, and on behalf of, the "stranger" by offering provision, compassion and mercy.  In step with these benevolent actions is the internal journey where we confess our own estrangement and therefore carry an internal posture of humility and love in the hope that strangers will become friends. As we anticipate the Refugee Welcome House moving next door, we will discover one of the ways to apply Scripture’s call is make room in our lives for refugees--those who have had to flee their homes and who are beginning to make Canada their new home.
