  1. this week at wesley

September 11, 2020

 

Hi All

 

In the scriptures, Jesus, when asked about what is most important in the faith, sums it up as love of neighbour. In these COVID times when it seems that we are asked to stay away from our neighbours it can feel contradictory to our faith. But of course, by staying away from our neighbour we are loving them in the protection it provides at this time.

 

However, the distancing that we are still being asked to maintain, serves to also separate from knowing when they are in need of our support and love in many ways. In our pandemic world with the loss of employment for many folk and the reality that CERB and Employment Insurance only goes so far, many of our neighbours are struggling with food security. For the first time, 1 in 5 people in the Montreal region are finding it hard to put food on their tables and are reaching out to food banks for help.

 

Unfortunately, again due to the pandemic, donations have not lived up the demand. So there is a great need for non perishable donations of food for our food banks and food security organizations. So what is a community to do? Here in the greater Montreal area, a grassroots movement has begun to create a Miracle on September 13th when Montrealers are invited to put non-perishable food donations on their front porches or in their apartment/condo lobbies. Starting at noon, volunteers will be going all over the city to collect the donations which will then be distributed to food banks and food security organizations across the islands and on the surrounding shores to restock their shelves. If you are able to contribute, I encourage you to do so. For more information, the web page here: https://miracle13septembre.org/

 

This week at Wesley, we return to Zoom worship at 10:30 am. I am looking forward to seeing you all once more as I explore the theme of forgiveness in our worship. You will find the link below.

 

As well, the Official Board meets on Monday evening via Zoom at 7:30pm. A Time to Share has resumed on Thursdays and takes place in English at 2pm and in Persian at 3:30 pm. Zoom links are below and a reminder will go out on Thursday.

 

Hoping to see you on Sunday.

 

Rev. Heather
