March 5, 2021

 

 

Hi All,

 

This coming week will mark the anniversary of the declaration of the global COVID pandemic and I do not need to tell you that we have had lots of things to do to address the situation. From social distancing and hand washing to mask-wearing and Zoom everything, we have made major adjustments to our lives to live with the difficulties of living in these times. Some of these adjustments have been really major and overwhelming, but others are quite simple and have given us the ability to take a small amount of control in a seemingly uncontrollable situation. These small things really help. And that is my point today, small actions can make a difference.

 

This week, there are a couple of things that are happening that I want to tell you about because they are pretty simple for us to participate in, but in both cases are a way for us to contribute and make a difference to a greater problem in our world. One is about climate change and the other addresses food insecurity.

 

The first event happens on Thursday, March 11 at 11 am. It is a virtual event to mark the Global Day of Action for Climate Change called Sacred People, Sacred Earth. It is a gathering of people from diverse faiths from all over Montreal. It will be a time for reflection on the Sacred People, Sacred Earth official statement, and an opportunity to find ways of supporting one another in taking further action for climate justice. If you want to check out this event, please take a look at the information at the online event link:  https://actionnetwork.org/events/montreal-sacred-people-sacred-earth-virtual?source=direct_link&

 

The second event coming up is a food drive to help the many folks who have seen their ability to feed their families diminish during COVID. The Miracle on March 13 is a Montreal region-wide food drive on Saturday, March 13. It is a great initiative, that we first saw last September, and everyone can participate by leaving some non-perishable food items for pick up by volunteers. Simply leave the items on your front porch or in your apartment building lobby at 10 am on March 13 and they will be picked up and delivered to local food distribution organizations. If you would like more information, want to volunteer, or register your donation, take a look at the Miracle Montreal website.

 

This week at Wesley, there is also a lot happening. Sunday school begins our day at 9:30 am and all children are welcome. At 10:30 am worship begins and we will be celebrating the Sacrament of Communion, so please be sure to have your juice and bread ready for the service. And finally, immediately following the service, we will be holding our Annual Congregational meeting and everyone is invited to attend. The meeting is not expected to be long and you are reminded to read through your annual report before Sunday. All links are below.

 

See you on Sunday.

 

Rev. Heather
