Surprised by Joy (Sun. 7 Oct, 2018 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton. Consider your life – who you love, and why, how blessed you are to be here, resting, under a shower of birdsong, or what strange, bright luck it is to be the owner, for a few years, of this beating heart, these wondering eyes, these ears into which the kingfisher spills her small chuckle as she dips across the water. “Summer Sabbath” - Kathleen McTigue from Shine and Shadow This Sunday, we will celebrate the earth’s bounty in our annual Thanksgiving Harvest Communion, with apple cider and fresh-baked bread (along with a gluten-free option). My sermon will explore the connections between gratitude and joy. Joanne Chapin will sing Sarah McLachlan’s “Ordinary Miracles”. Lynn and the Resident Musicians will sing Bruce Cockburn’s “Joy will find a way”. Following the service, we will take part in a dessert potluck, upstairs in Workman Hall. All in all, it will be a wonderful day to honour both the ordinary and extraordinary gifts of life. May this Thanksgiving, in whatever ways you celebrate, provide you opportunities to connect with gratitude and with joy. Happy Thanksgiving! In faith and love, Shawn View the Order of Service.
