GCF - Easter and End of Term Celebration

Thursday, April 8, 2021 at 7pm on zoom
Contact uoftcampusministry@gmail.com to get the zoom link.

Happy Easter!

Each year, as Christians, we remember and retell the stories of Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection. We do this together to remind ourselves of the story we find ourselves in. This year, we again desperately need to be reminded of the resurrection, that life and hope and joy emerge in the midst of isolation, anxiety, sickness and death. So we will gather to celebrate our shared Easter story together.
 
Remembering and retelling are important spiritual practices, not only at Easter, but as rituals that help us know who we are as community.  At GCF, we have a tradition of ending the year in reflection, celebration, and gratitude. So this week we will remember the year we have had together since September. We'll recall some of the themes we've discussed, the members of our community who have shared their stories, the guests who have challenged and enriched us, and the joys and difficulties of meeting online this past season.
 
We’ll also talk on Thursday about what we’ll do together as we transition to Spring/Summer GCF. Come with ideas of what you’d like to do, and things you might like to lead over the next couple of months.
 
We hope you can join us on Thursday.

Easter Blessings,
Brenda and Carol
