Water, Wine & Witness:  the sacraments and what they mean

Outward and visible signs of an inward and invisible grace.  That's how the 4th century theologian, Augustine, describes the sacraments.  When we gather at the table of Jesus Christ, or the font of baptism, something happens.  We see bread broken, wine poured, prayers offered; we see water poured and splashed on someone.  That's visible.  But what happens really?  Come and see what God has done.

All Earth is Waiting: Advent and Climate Justice

In his letter to the church in Rome, Paul writes that the whole creation is groaning together and suffering labor pains, waiting for the salvation that is to come. These words are even more insistent today as we witness 11,000 climate scientists from 153 countries sign a declaration of climate emergency.  The season of Advent calls faithful people to lay down our addiction to the trappings of Christmas and to think through what it means to anticipate Christ's gifts of hope, peace, joy and love.  These are not just gifts for people, these are gifts that all of creation can anticipate.  Advent at Lynn Valley United takes us through a thoughtful commitment to climate justice.
