Mindfulness Meditation – A Three Week Introduction to Lectio Divina

February 8, 2022 at 7:00 pm

Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. And so, it is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart. —GANDHI

 Mindfulness has become a significant part of society’s emotional and social wellness.  It claims to decrease blood pressure, decrease heart rate, and decrease stress.  For Christians, we consider it to be one way we listen for God speaking to us, speaking to us in the quiet of our hearts.

Please join me for a three week introduction to Lectio Divina , one of the many ways we can invite the Holy Spirit into our souls and hear what God is saying to us.  The first theme will be Gratitude.  No experience is necessary.   Lots of questions and doubts and busy lives are welcomed.

Tuesday  January  25-February 8, 2022

The Story behind our

Tracking Organ

Our magnificent three manual, tracker-action organ was installed in the chancel of the church in the spring of 1982 and dedicated to the Glory of God and in memory of those who died in the First World War and the Second World War.

The organ, built by the Karl Wilhelm Company of Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec, has a classical continental design. The case is made of white oak and the pipe shades are of carved butternut. Voiced in the classic French style, its 36 stops and 50 ranks are capable of interpreting a wide variety of organ literature.

Installation required considerable changes to the chancel including moving the altar forward and arranging choir seating to either side. These renovations prompted the design and production of our award-winning Benedicite Kneelers, done in needlepoint by a dedicated group of church members.
