Advent and Christmas at St. Luke's
Each week of Advent, stones painted with Advent symbols painted on them will be available at St. Luke's, St. Martin's, All Saints, and Julian of Norwich and the four parishes will hold each other in prayer. This is offered as a tangible reminder that even as we continue our pandemic response and cannot all join together in person, we can join together in prayer and devotion. The prayer will be included at in-person worship and in the newsletter. The stones will be handled carefully, with pandemic safety protocols in mind.
A "Blue Christmas" Service at St. Luke's
"Blue Christmas" is a gentle, contemplative liturgy for those who are carrying pain or loss in the Christmas season. St. Luke's will offer this service on Sunday, December 20th, 2020 at 3:00 p.m.
A Virtual Winter Solstice Labyrinth Walk
A Winter Solstice Labyrinth Walk will be pre-recorded in our beloved space at St. Luke's, and made available online before December 21st, 2020. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.
Are you feeling anxious about Christmas?
As we enter the season of Advent and Christmas draws closer, many of us will find ourselves feeling worried or anxious about what Christmas will be like as we continue our pandemic response. Reverend Victoria is available by phone (613-698-6083) or Zoom to listen, talk, and pray with you.
Would you like to connect with another member of the community but aren’t sure how to reach them? Contact Helen Cathcart at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a message on the church answering machine and we’ll make the connection.
We can get through this together!
Why Social Justice?
"Why social justice? It makes the abstract real..." US theologian and activist Kelly Brown Douglas answers the question - why 'social' and 'justice'. Click on the image to watch and listen.
“What I’ve always believed is that humanity has the capacity to be kinder, more just, more fair, more rational, more reasonable, more tolerant. It is not inevitable. History does not move in a straight line. But if you have enough people of goodwill who are willing to work on behalf of those values, then things can get better.” Read the full interview with Barack Obama here.
