Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton, Rev. Lynn Harrison,
Intern Minister Danielle Webber.
We end our month focussed on the theme of "Creation" with a bit of an experiment in creativity. One of the spiritual exercises in this month's New Horizons suggested creating something with someone else. Danielle Webber proposed the three ministers create a sermon together, so that is what we will endeavour to do--in real time--on Sunday morning. Lynn, Danielle, and I will be offering up an improvised conversation on creativity in the place of a traditional sermon this week. Dallas Bergen and our Resident Musicians will also be getting into the spirit of improvisation by creating musical settings for our seven principles. It should be a Sunday to remember!
I rarely do this, but I very much encourage you to visit the wonderful show, "Mystical Landscapes," on at the Art Gallery of Ontario. The exhibition has been extended to February 12th. Even with the press of the crowds, I have found it to be a serene experience. If inclined, I'd also suggest listening to this episode of "Tapestry" on the CBC which provides a helpful and insightful introduction the show. Enjoy!
In faith and love,
View the Order of Service.
