Looking Forward to October 14, 2007 -- 20th Sunday After Pentecost

The Scripture Readings this Sunday are:
  • From the Jewish Scriptures: Exodus 3: 1-7;10-12
  • Psalm 28 (see insert)
  • From the Gospel: (see insert)

The Hymns the Sunday are:

  • 374 Come and Find the Quiet Centre
  • Kum Ba Yah (insert)
  • 664 What a Friend We Have in Jesus
  • 424 May the God of Hope Go With Us

This Sunday we are doing something different. Instead of a Sermon there will be some Silent Reflection.

One of the things that has happened within Western culture is a loss of silence. This has happened in our worship as well. And yet, if we are never silent and still how can we ever listen? How can we quiet the anxiety that comes from always "doing"?

In this service, designed by Peter Fergus-Moore in ThunderBay, we will take time to be silent, interspersed with the lines of the Lord's Prayer. It will be a new thing. It may push our limits given that in many worship services any silence feels too long. But we will give it a try. Come and share the experience with us.
