This Week@Wesley

  1. this week at wesley

January 16, 2020

 

Hi All

 

This is coming to you a day earlier than it usually does, but for good reason.  

 

This week at Wesley, we are having some very special guests to lead our service. The WoW band from St. Lambert United Church is joining us to lead us in a Heal the Land service. Through music and readings they will take us on a journey to help connect us to this land we live on, recognizing that we do not own it but are trustees of it along with our indigenous hosts. The service is super accessible and so we are going to have the children stay in the service this week so that they, too can be fed by the music and words.

 

The WoW band cares deeply for the plight of indigenous people and any benefits that come to the band go towards helping the Montreal Native Friendship centre in their work for indigenous people who come to Montreal for any reason.  Steve Britton, one of the band members and his wife Elizabeth came up with the idea for Blessing Bags to be handed out to folks who need support as they make their way in Montreal when they come for school and medical services. The bags are a large Zip-Lock bags that are filled with some or all of the following items: socks, underwear, kleenex, lip balm, toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, comb, shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, bandaids, handiwipes, hand lotion, tampons, facecloths, granola bars, tea bags, cup a soup, trail mix, hot chocolate, crackers, mints, gum, candies, rain ponchos, dog biscuits, coins. (All toiletry items are travel sized)

 

This Sunday, you are invited to bring along any and all of the above items as well as cash to be used in furthering the Blessing Bags ministry. It is hoped that you will be able to contribute in some way.

 

See you on Sunday.

 

Rev. Heather
