Count Your Blessings (Sun. 9 Oct, 2016 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton & Rev. Lynn Harrison.

Though we still await the arrival of fall’s colourful splendour, we will celebrate Thanksgiving this Sunday with our annual Harvest Communion and our Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner. Focussing on this month’s theme of “Blessing,” Lynn and I will offer reflections on the connection between the recognition of life’s blessings and a spiritual practice of gratitude. At the end of the service, we will honour the earth’s bounty with a communion ceremony of freshly baked bread and apple cider. After an abbreviated coffee hour, we will enjoy a potluck Thanksgiving Dinner in Workman Hall. All are welcome, and everyone is invited to bring a dish to share.

If your plans take you elsewhere this weekend, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving, filled with gratitude “for all that is our life.”

In faith and love,
Shawn
