Update from Rev. Sherri!

Dear Westminster Friends,

During this Week of Christian Unity, we are reminded of the common call to mission and ministry that we share with all faith groups, and most especially with other Christian Denominations. The United Church of Canada is a denomination which encourages us to “draw the circle wide,” and to remember that we are far more than simply our own congregation—we are part of the wider church community, and together we all participate in God’s mission, helping to build and become God’s vision of peace, hope and compassion in the world, each in our own small ways. That is pretty awesome, when you think about it.  As the words of Archbishop Desmund Tutu continue to reverberate and remind us – it is those little bits of good, when put together, that overwhelm the world.

Blessings, Rev. Sherri.

Upcoming Zoom Study Group

How is it with your soul?  Spiritual Attributes: Nurturing our Spiritual Path

You are invited to this three-week study on ways to nurture our spiritual path; each week will include prayer, personal reflection, small group conversation, plenary discussion and homework suggestions.  All that is required is you bring your curiosity and a willingness to explore what your spiritual path is or might be.  More information, including dates and time, to come!

(With thanks to Loraine MacKenzie Shepherd and Tammy Allen’s book: Thriving Churches: Urban and Rural Successes, which I use as a resource for this study—an interesting read, but not necessary to read for participation in this group).
