Live @ Messiah: 5th Sunday of Lent 2017
This Lent we continue to the walk the way of the cross as a way of healing for creation, the world, and ourselves. This week we are focusing on reconciliation and healing of the relationship between First Nations (“native”) peoples in Canada the Settler peoples who have come to dominate this ancient land. The relationship between these two peoples is complex, but we have a mandate as people of conscience to listen to the wisdom of the Truth and Reconciliation Process and adopt as many recommendations as we are able. As followers of Jesus, we believe that the life and teachings of Jesus reveal specific truths that create new possibilities for healing and provoke us to align our ways to God’s ways in this regard. What does the raising of Lazarus from the dead, told in the story of John, have to teach us about reconciling with our First Nations Brother sand Sisters? Find out as we explore the text together. The service includes readings from scripture, music, a sermon, and Communion. Scroll below to see the leaflet or click on this link to see the worship leaflet.
