This Sunday, Devon explores the theme of work (toil and labour) in the book of Ecclesiastes. We discuss what work can and cannot contribute to our lives today.

This Sunday, we continue our study of Ecclesiastes, exploring the raw honesty of its author. We’ll reflect on how this ancient text invites us to confront the world’s suffering with open eyes and compassionate hearts, and grants us liberating permission to be honest about our own struggles, suffering, doubts, despair and disillusionment as a path to healing and growth. 

Together, we’ll consider the transformative power of lament, authenticity and vulnerability within community as gifts of hope and strength amidst life’s struggles, tragedies and uncertainties.

Summertime, and the living is … meaningless?!?

The Teacher of Ecclesiastes contends that everything in life is ultimately in vain and therefore meaningless. Is the Teacher completely correct or could there be something more? What might Jesus have to say to the Teacher?

Join Mark Dettweiler as he explores these questions.

This weekend marks the first of two long weekends where we will not be gathering together at 22 Willow at 9AM (June 30th and August 4th). Instead, we encourage the community, staff, and especially our valued volunteers, to utilize this time for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

This will also be the last Neighbours Sunday until the fall. If you’re part of a Neighbours Group, you’ll be hearing from your group leaders directly. If you’re not in a Neighbours Group and would like to be plugged in, sign up on Church Center to get connected with the group in your area.

The Importance and Danger of Moderation: We are told that moderation is a virtue, but it is easy to call for moderation when you are in a place of comfort and privilege. This week we will look at a number of passages of scripture and consider how they could be used to both help and to harm and discern together what it means to listen to the Spirit as a community.
