Passage: 2 Cor 13:11-13, Matt 28:16-20
Good morning everyone:  It looks like another lovely day in June: enjoy it as you are able.  The month of May is behind us.  I remember a time when the Lockdown was due to end on May 12th.  Remember then?  I had a glorious vision of us all turning up for worship on May 17th; singing Easter songs and shouting Hallelujah.  How naive I was.  Last week I was in meetings - with community and regional religious leaders (Christian, Jewish, Muslim) called by Daisy Wai M.P.P.; with Presbyterian colleagues from Ontario; and with the local "ministerial".  All were agreed that the first duty of our congregations was to work together to preserve community health. In practical terms this will most likely mean that our congregations will not meet physically until September.  "See you in September ?"
Meanwhile our church and most other faith communities are worshiping online. Both for you who are reading, those who are listening to worship for Sunday, those who are doing both together - we will be sharing communion in our homes, likely for the first time in your lives. Please make sure that you have some bread and a grape beverage (if possible, but any juice or soda will do) available. Couples and families share with each other.  For those alone in your homes know that you are sharing with our congregation and that you are part of the Body of Christ. On Trinity Sunday, we meditate on all the ways God has created for us to experience Divinity and remember Paul's words to a very young Christian community in Corinth, Greece. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of you. [2 Corinthians 13:13]
Peace be with you, Duncan
