Sunday June 18, 2017 is Fathers’ Day and we will be celebrating that (and praying for fathers everywhere) at St. Andrew’s. But Father’s day also falls in the midst of our series celebrating Canada 150 this year. Hope you can join us for:
- Some very special music by our own Madison Lightfoot.
- Reflections on the following passage and what it says to us about our country and its origins:
Galatians 5:13-1413 For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become slaves to one another. 14 For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.” 15 If, however, you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.
- The sermon was inspired by the above scripture and a rather odd occurrence at the first meeting of the Fathers of Confederation in Charlottetown. It is entitled “Canada 150: Call to a Nation from a Rowboat.”
Here is a little promotional video for the sermon and the Canada 150 story:
