Looking Forward to March 4, 2007 -- 2nd Sunday of Lent

This week we will hear a report from the Cambrian Presbytery Meeting that took place February 22-25 in Thunder Bay. This week also marks the first in the Lenten Sermon Series.

The Scripture passages for this week are:
  • Isaiah 43:14-21
  • Psalm 27 (VU p.754)
  • Revelation 21:1-7

The Hymns for this week are:

  • #402 We Are One
  • #299 Teach Me, God to Wonder
  • #579 The Church is Wherever God's People
  • #713 I See a New Heaven

The Sermon title is: The Church In the World: WonderCafe/Emerging Spirit

Early Thoughts: The United Church of Canada is in the midst of doing something new. As described in this place back in November, the church has a program called Emerging Spirit running right now. This is an atttempt to reach out to a missing generation (the 30-45 year-olds) in our churches.

Unfortuantely, as with many initiatives of General Council, there was not a lot of time taken to orient congregation (or their leaders) about what was happening. This Sunday we will talk about the whats and the whys of Emerging Spirit We will look at the magazine ads, we will talk about the WonderCafe website, we will hear about the upcoming Living the Welcome event. Arrangements have been made to borrow a LCD projector for this Sunday so we can see as well as hear. (Thanks to Reading Plus.)

We look forward to seeing you there.
