Sunday, September 11 ~ Pentecost 14

God’s promise of new life for us and for all of creation is clear.

All we want is the old one back again.

God’s promise of the renewing of the whole of creation comes.

We want to preserve the advantages we have.

We receive your promise of good news and abundance for all.

But we worry if it will cost us too much when everyone has enough,

and when all of creation is cared for.

May we accept the challenge of living into God’s care for all creation.

In worship, may we embrace true faith and living the gospel.

Beth W Johnston, Bridging Waters P.C., Nipawin, Sask.

The Essex Food Bank needs cereal and jam for the families they support.  These items are in short supply.  We continue to support both the Essex Food Bank and the Salvation Army Food Bank. These are challenging times for food banks and both groups are very appreciative of our support.




Our Daily Bread for September, October and November is available in the Narthex.
