Welcome to the podcast!
The episodes contain the guided meditations/prayers and messages from our weekly services. We hope that you'll join us on zoom in the live gathering but if you aren't able to do that then we have this podcast where you can listen or the replay of the videos are up in our private facebook group.
Catch up on our conversations through the summer with Huw & Meghan, Jenn, and Eric & Krista, Christa & Teresa on compassion in our lives and work places. It was so good to hear from all of them and see the common threads of self-compassion needed to maintain lives of compassion for others.
On the podcast are the three special episodes featuring the conversation with Brad Jersak on reimag/in/ing scripture, prayer and faith community.
It is the Labour Day weekend and so we are taking the Sunday off gathering together formally. Have a wonderful weekend and we'll catch up next week! New things are coming!

Message Sarah if you are coming to Ellwood so we know to look out for you!
Contact the office if you would like to connect with others midweek and start or join a group.
We'll get this up and running once school has started.
There may be a time when some in our community need to stay home and isolate. We want to be able to help you as you need it. There are members of our community who will be happy to pick up groceries for you, bring you a nice coffee, visit through a window, pray for you, or try and meet whatever need you have.
Let us know how we can help by contacting the church office. It's said way too often, but nonetheless it is still true; we are in this together.
