Reconciliation with Others

This is the final Sunday of our worship theme on reconciliation. The overarching worship theme of this series was “Reconciliation is the centre of our work.” On this final Sunday, we focus on our calling to pursue reconciliation with others. This ministry is grounded in God’s reconciliation with us and our right relationships with ourselves and our environment. Reconciling with others is where the work of building right relationships can get hard. This form of reconciliation demands our vulnerability and truth-telling, our humility, our patience and trust.

One very practical way of thinking about reconciliation with others is by acknow ledging the land upon which we live. We acknowledge that we are gathered for worship on the traditional territories of numerous First Nations, including Cree, Dene (DEN-Ē), Nakota, Saulteaux (SO-TO), and Ojibwe (OJIB-WĒ) and the homeland of the Métis Nation. We are dedicated to ensuring that the spirit of Reconciliation and Treaty 6 is honoured and respected.

May God’s Spirit open our hearts to this work of reconciliation that the world so badly needs.

Reconciliation with Creation

Today is the third Sunday on our theme, Reconciliation is the Centre of our Work.  Our focus today is on reconciliation with creation.  We are blessed to live on a planet that is beautiful, wondrous, and mysterious.  Yet creation groans for redemption and healing from the abuse that it endures as the result of human arrogance.  As ambassadors of God’s reconciling work in the world, our role is to be caretakers of God’s good earth.
