Candles of Caring
The journey of our lives has brought us this morning to this place, to be here, together. What a miracle this is to share these moments and to be nourished by each otherʼs presence. May we approach this time with gratitude and hope. So may it be.

Our online-only format is a morally sound response by our community to the current pandemic on our planet. This also means that we are emphasizing remote giving during our offering this morning:
- Donations can now be sent via e-transfer/Interac to firstname.lastname@example.org; in the note, you MUST include your name and if your donation is for the Sunday offering, your pledge, or our capital campaign.
- You may always mail cheques to the church!
- We are also using Canada Helps to receive online donations. Go to their website to donate in this way.
Our Share the Plate Partner for September, receiving half of the collection taken each Sunday, is L.I.T.E. (Local Investment Toward Employment).
“Marginal Wisdom” by The Reverend Leslie Takahashi
The sound of a singing bowl and two minutes of silence will follow the meditation.
