Bouquet for the Bells

I took a phone call on Friday just as I was going for lunch. A woman called to thank us for the bells. It sounded like she was crying. She said she had been sitting in her car at the red light, seething with anger, when our bells came on and completely changed her perspective. She was so thankful and asked that we never stop the bells. Just thought I should share — Marilyn Thiessen, Office Administrator.

Please keep the congregation and staff of Knox United Church, Winnipeg in your thoughts and prayers this week.

Lenten Candle-lighting begins March 1st

For centuries, lighting a candle has been an important part of the spiritual journey — a way for pilgrims to remember, to pray for, to hope, to bless, to lift up or to honour or acknowledge fellow travelers, important moments, spiritual yearnings (like a prayer for peace), or other significant experiences.

Beginning Sunday March 1, 2020 and for the following four Sunday mornings, there will be tea lights available on the platform at the front of the sanctuary. Prior to worship, as you come into the sanctuary (and until the service starts) you are invited to light a tea light if you wish, in silence, as a personal remembrance, prayer, blessing, joy or acknowledgement/honouring during this Lenten time. Blessings to all of us pilgrims as we move through our spiritual journey this Lent.
