Musings, May 28th 2018: Pentecost Moments!

“This is not a march.  It’s not a protest.  It’s not even a parade!  It’s a Pentecost moment.  The Spirit is a blowing!”

Bishop James Curry, May 24th 2018 As he addressed 2000+ people preparing to walk to the White House, #ReclaimingJesus

In closing, I look forward to our gatherings on Sunday.  As much as I enjoyed the Festival of Homiletics and the other experiences of the past week, I’ve missed you and look

Looking Ahead

Today I am playing catch up behind the desk and later today I will attend the funeral of the late Helen Barclay.  Tomorrow I am in Moncton for meetings followed by an Uackville United Church Executive Committee meeting in evening.

On Wednesday I will be in the office in the morning and visiting two of the outlining nursing homes in the afternoon.  Thursday will see me in the office finishing up (I hope) things for Sunday.

Friday will be a day off and I hope to get a jump start in my participation in the Great Canadian Cycle Challenge (click on the link if you’d like to support me).  On Saturday I am hosting a group ride at Centennial Park in Moncton from 10AM to 12PM.

Sunday of course will see us gather at Upper Sackville at 9am and Sackville at 11am.  Pat Belliveau will be with us at Sackville United speaking briefly of her involvement with an orphanage in South Africa.  Following the service there will be a congregational meeting to consider the resolution from the Affirming Committee.

Looking Further Ahead

June 16th at 2pm, Sackville United Church take part in the Cumberland Pride Parade.  Want to help out?  Want to walk in the parade (or ride on a float) if we make one?  Speak to Lloyd or Bruce.  And… maybe we’ll do it all again on August 25th and take part in the Moncton Pride Parade?
