Read the story of our Good Shepherd Prayer Group. Just click on the image above and then download the document. It’s been quite a journey, and it keeps on going. It’s also a journey that’s open to new pilgrims all the time. Might it be calling you to come along for the ride?
Steve Bell is a Canadian Christian musician whose music many of us at Good Shepherd love. Well, more than just his music really. We love his story-telling and his engaging way of sharing his theological insights and Christian witness. And now he’s a powerful advocate for global vaccine equity. Check out his recent blog and consider making a donation to the “Love Your Neighbour” project that he talks about here: https://stevebell.com/global-vaccine-equity/
It’s amazing what the experience of Easter can inspire in people. Here is an artwork that Cara Wills was inspired to create. And many thank to Cara for her willingness to share it. What else has the good news of Easter inspired in your life?
Our worship service video for the Fourth Sunday of Easter has been provided to us by the BC Synod. Thank you to our BC Synod, and to Rev. Nathan Fong of Grace Lutheran Church who provided the sermon.
As I pulled into the parking lot at the church on Easter Sunday morning I was greeted by this colourful and inspiring message. I have no idea who the artist is but they did a wonderful job. It wasn’t quite the shock of seeing Jesus risen from the dead, but it was still a delightful surprise. This was the second year in a row that I was greeted by this display on easter morning. So to whoever created this…thank you and may you know that your work brought joy to my morning.
Come laugh along with us as we celebrate Easter joy with a little more fun and frivolity than usual. Because laughter is a gift of God. And besides, nothing drives away doubt and worry quite like a good guffaw!
We are creating a collage of origami hearts as a gesture of gratitude to our community healthcare workers. And you are invited to help us.
We’ve created packages containing origami paper and instructions for folding. It’s quite easy and you are invited to make as many as you’d like. They will be available to be picked up by the back office door of the church all week.
We’ve created an instructional video, which you can watch below. If you can’t come pick a package up but would like one delivered just let Sherry know at the office and we will deliver one to you.
Plus we are organizing an online crafter party on Wednesday evening. I will send the link tomorrow. It will be at 7 pm and go for an hour. Everyone is invited to join us.
And when you’ve done your folding just deliver the hearts to the church, either at the office or through the mail slot in the front door of the church. We will need them by next Sunday, April 11.
Thanks for your help.
