Genesis 28:10-17, John 1:47-51
Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost

Today, we celebrate the Feast of St. Michael and All Angels, which invites us to open our eyes to the unseen supernatural, and open our hearts in wonder to God’s Presence, as we explore the depths of the awesomeness of the truth that God is with us. Our Readings from Holy Scripture, and the other parts of our Liturgy will reflect this theme throughout. We’re blessed to have Paul play the hymns live for us, and Kerry in-person to give our First Reading. We have a special Children’s Time, with the song “The Circle of Love.” We’re blessed to have a strong ecumenical component to our Service: our Prayers of the People are both from the Uniting Church in Australia – a special St. Michael and All Angels’ Litany from the late Rev’d Bruce Prewer, and a Prayer in Response to COVID-19; and our Affirmation of Faith is from the United Church of Canada. And, we’re offering the Eucharistic Prayer and then receiving together in our hearts the One who has revealed the full extent of what the words “God with us” mean, as we share Spiritual Communion together.
