Well, another hurricane for NS! While not nearly as devastating as Juan, the sight of so many broken trees, washed away shorelines and destruction is heartbreaking. The news and photos of places east of HRM, along with PEI and NL are even more devastating and heartbreaking.
Worship – This week the scripture is Genesis 18:1-15, 21:1-3; I am sticking with last week’s theme of Hospitality and Promise, because it seemed most appropriate as we mark Treaty Day, Orange Shirt Day and celebrate World Communion Sunday. We are also going to dedicate the chairs this week. Don’t forget to wear your Orange T-Shirt if you have one and if you don’t, wear something else orange, a blouse, scarf, etc. I’d like to take a picture of all of us in our orange shirts that day.
You will have noted the logo on the front of the bulletin over the last few weeks. It’s called The Survivors’ Flag and is an expression of remembrance, meant to honour residential school Survivors and all the lives and communities impacted by the residential school system in Canada. Each element depicted on the flag was carefully selected by Survivors from across Canada, who were consulted in the flag’s creation. You can read all about it here.
We are going to attempt the Community Free Market Exchange on October 1st!
Our long awaited refugee/immigrant is arriving today (Monday)! There are folks who will be at the airport to greet him, even though it will be at a distance. He will be isolating for two weeks as per Covid restrictions.
