May 26: Hungers We Cannot Forget
Service Leader: Rev. Stefan Jonasson
Service Coordinator: Marian Siemens
Everyone has experienced the feeling of being hungry, both literally and metaphorically, but there are some hungers that weigh more heavily upon us. We hunger when our appetite reaches a tipping point that is hard to satiate. If we’re materially fortunate, our experiences of hunger will be more often spiritual than physical, but that doesn’t mean that our feelings of hunger won’t torment both our bodies and our minds. What can we do with the hungers we cannot forget?

From the Minister's Study - May 2019
While you are reading this in May, I’m writing it near the end of April, after our Easter Sunday service. And I’m writing because I wanted to share with you how moved I was during the musical offertory of that service.
Earlier in the morning, we had done a shared litany using words that had been placed as treasure inside Easter eggs. At the end of the litany, each of us were invited to share our own excitement, joy, hope for the present and for the coming of spring and summer in our own lives and in our congregation. It was a ritual exercise in sharing things that sustain us.
Hospitality Setup Sign-up Sheet
We need some volunteers to help with Sunday mornings for hospitality set up - we are at risk of losing this wonderful part of our time together.
We all enjoy our tea and coffee hospitality after the Sunday service - it is an important part of community building, catching up with friends and making new friends. Please help keep our morning hospitality happening. We are in big need of people to volunteer for the set up each Sunday. The time commitment is approximately 45 minutes before church and under an hour afterwards for clean up.
Use this easy-to-use online Hospitality Setup Sign-up Sheet to sign up for a Sunday or two now and give it a try - it's fun and you meet great people.
Please help keep our morning hospitality alive and well for all to enjoy.
