Community and Change

Change—Beginning Sunday, January 20 until Sunday
February 9th we will be exploring the theme of “Community and
Change” during the reflection time in worship. We will look at what
questions and lessons some of our faith stories give us about
entering into and managing change in a community of faith. Here are
the themes for each week:
o January 20: Wandering in the Wilderness—The Need to be Lost
o January 26: Bread for the Journey—Finding Sustenance on the
Way
o February 2: Letting Go—Making Room for the New
o February 9: One More Step—Life as a Trustworthy Adventure

Wandering in the Wilderness

Community and Change-Wandering in the Wilderness Exodus 13: 17-22 (January 19, 2020-2nd Sunday after Epiphany) I hope you like self-deprecating humour.  How many church members does it take to change a light bulb?  The answer—“Change!?  We don’t change!”  Individual change is hard enough but institutional change that involves so many people with different personalities, values and agendas can be daunting, rife with…
