Rev. Peggy McDonagh: "Diversity, in all its Beauty"

A Message from Rev. Peggy

Hi all,

Please join with me this Sunday for our 4th week of the Sacred Earth, Sacred Work series focusing on the theme of “glorious diversity.”

I celebrate the beauty of the diversity of our sacred planet and acknowledge the land and territory of Treaty 7 and the Metis Nations Region 3 upon which I strive to live within the oneness of God’s ever enlivening love.  “A morning breeze, the gleam of a new day, may we discern the possibilities that are before us, may we wrap out lives around the challenges of today.”  (Adapted Gretta Vospers) "

Peace and love be with you, Rev. Peggy McDonagh
