Sunday Worship Service - March 19, 2023 at 10:30 am

WELCOME

Dear Friends,

As the sun glints off of white March snow, I look out dirty windows and am aware of what I notice, and what I do not. As with every story of Jesus, we are invited to notice our lives differently. To notice is to use all of your senses, and we bring that awareness to the story of Jesus healing the blind man, John 9:1-41. I am grateful to share sermonizing with Neena Saloya this week, as we reflect on a familiar text and the many ways we have taken its reading for granted.

Neena will bring us a fresh perspective, and a hearing of this scripture through the lens of her own experience. As we continue on this seeking journey, I invite you to pray into these questions for this week: How do you describe God? Where in your life do you need healing? The disciples seek answers and clarity from Jesus, what answers do you seek?

Perhaps you need a soundtrack to make it come alive, so have a listen to one of my favourite songs, Closer to Fine by the Indigo Girls.

Bless you in the seeking,

Rev. Maya

In Person

You may sit anywhere you wish without restrictions. When attending worship during this busy season, we encourage you to wear a mask. As a community of caring, we wear a mask to protect others who may be more vulnerable than ourselves.

Consider keeping a mask handy when you engage in conversation with someone else. If you’re feeling unwell, we encourage you to please care for yourself at home and join us online.

If you want to wear a mask and forgot to bring yours, we will have masks available at the entrances to the Sanctuary.
