REV. PEGGY MCDONAGH: 10 a.m. Service on Zoom (Youtube to follow)

 

  • A Letter from Rev. Peggy McDonagh:

I hope this week blessed your lives with some unexpected kindness, gratitude or surprise.  On Sunday we embark on the final week of the series, Sacred Earth, Sacred Work. 

Just a Reminder:  This 6-week worship series is built on a movement and theology called "Creation Spirituality, a theology that affirms God’s declaration that creation is “supremely good” and that we are called to be that goodness in and for the world.

I invite you to prepare your worship space with elements from nature:

  • flowers, leaves, branches,
  • a rainbow,
  • images of compassion, etc. 
  • a candle placed amongst your creation elements.
  • add to your worship space a special collection bowl or offering bowl that will be part of our worship ritual for the remainder of the series. 
  • a piece of paper that will be an important part of one of our rituals. I’ve attached the worship folder for those who wish to follow along.   I’ve also attached a note from Ruth Cross regarding her Crab-apple Jelly.

(Worship folder and Note from Ruth is found on MINISTRIES/WORSHIP as a file attachment.)

Thank you and see you on Sunday.

Peace be with you,

Rev. Peggy McDonagh St. David's United Church  403 284-2276  Ext. 104
