Tuesday & Wednesdays: Spiritual Literacy Group. Using resources from Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat this small group (and another on Wednesday evenings) will explore spiritual attitudes and practices that can contribute to living lives of meaning: attention, gratitude, kindness, play and the list goes on. On each Tuesday morning and Wednesday evening we will explore the same theme – so, if you can’t make a Tuesday morning come on Wednesday evening or vice versa.
Consider taking part: Tuesdays at 10am or Wednesday at 7pm
COMMON VISION CONCERT: Coming on November 5 at 3pm, a musical ecumenical event featuring the music of Ron Klusmeier (and others) along with information on the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. The event will feature a mass choir made up of singers from several Sackville churches, along with congregational singing.
WONDER CAFÉ: On October 29, our worship will include a time for community conversation with student activist Aidan Legault on “The Future of Faith”.
