Sermon by Danielle Webber, Intern Minister.
This Sunday we have the opportunity to welcome Dr. Priya Raju to our community to talk to us about mental health with Refugees, and how our hidden biases around culture and multicultural settings can effect mental health. You will have the opportunity to hear Dr. Raju speak during the service, and are welcome to join a more fulsome presentation after the service in Sunderland Hall at 12:15.
We will also be recognizing the First Sunday of Advent during our service, we will light our first candle, a candle of hope. We will be uncovering what it means to have hope in a time when letting go can be a challenge; when opening up means moving out of our comfort zones; and when welcoming new people to our community seems so easy at first, yet the challenges can often be invisible to us. I am looking forward to exploring these ideas and worshiping with you.
With Love, Danielle
