Tree Wrapping – July 9

All are invited to a community event in our yard on July 9 from 1-3 pm. We will be joined by environmental artist Sylvie Roussels-Janssens who will be working with those in attendance to create colourful and creative tree warps for trees in our mini-forest, adding some beauty to our community.

There will be a couple of other artistic activities to join as well as music by the folk band “Beyond Flannel,” ice cream snacks, and an opportunity to meet neighbours. Everything is free and open to all ages. We hope you’ll join us. Please call or email the office with any questions.

Five trees with colorful wraps around the trunks.

Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Demons. There’s a topic that will stop any conversation cold. And yet we all have them. So maybe the conversation we really need to have is what we’re doing with them. And what might God have to say about that. Off we go to the land of the swineherds!

The Holy Trinity Sunday

So, Holy Trinity Sunday. The only special day in the church calendar that celebrates a theological doctrine. God as one and yet three, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Maybe makes us wonder if those who made up the calendar were just trying to keep seminary professors happy. Or maybe there’s more to this Holy Trinity talk than meets the eye, or the ear. Come along and join the dance!

Ascension of Our Lord

Heads up!… That’s a bad Ascension Day joke. A really bad Ascension Day joke. But this day itself is no joke, as obscure as it might be to most Christians. So what can it mean for us today that Jesus ascended to the Father? Maybe the answer lies, once again, with those slow-witted disciples. Just what do they have to teach us this time?

GSLC Garage Sale

Hello everyone, this is just a reminder that tomorrow we will be hosting our Good Shepherd Lutheran Church Garage Sale! It will be taking place from 9 am to 3 pm tomorrow, May 28.

Sixth Sunday in Easter

“Give peace a chance.” That anthemic protest chant of the late 60’s might be the cry of our hearts these days with the multiple crises and conflicts stressing our world. But which peace is it exactly that we need to give a chance? Today we return to the night in which our Lord Jesus was betrayed to hear him weigh in on that question.

Fifth Sunday in Easter

Ever notice how sometimes the simplest things in life can also be the hardest? “Love one another,” Jesus tells us today. Easy for him to say. Hard for us to follow. But maybe we can find some help in the bizarre story of the disciple Peter and a vision of the strangest buffet ever. Let’s see what’s cooking in Joppa.

Fourth Sunday in Easter

Happy Mother’s Day to all deserving moms! This is also Good Shepherd Sunday. No real connection there other than the fact that shepherds are usually symbols of motherly comfort. But today they also point us to a truth that might not feel all that comforting, at least at first. Green and slightly unsettling pastures await!
