The Spaces Between Us - an interfaith exploration
There is much polarization in our world today and no less so in what sometimes seems to be the deep divide between religious traditions. Let us begin with this assertion: we can scour the scriptures but we will not find that Jesus commissioned the church to prove other religions wrong! Rather, loving God and loving neighbour means learning how God reaches into her creation to be in relationship with all her people.
Sunday, June 30 James 1:19-27 Christianity is most interesting when practised
Sunday, July 7 Job 12:7-10 An Indigenous Way - Jesus and Manitou

All Means All - inclusive AND affirming
Lynn Valley Church has embarked on the process of discerning a call to become an Affirming Ministry of the United Church of Canada. Regardless of the outcome, this process will take us into the heart of our own identity. In honour of this year's Pride Season, and to lay some groundwork for the affirming process, this sermon series welcomes you to the journey of inclusion; what does it mean to be more than hospitable, but to be fully inclusive of all gifts?

Sunday, August 4 Matthew 5:13-20 Jesus and the Clobber Texts

If you want to take a "deeper dive" into the texts...
Are you interested in exploring the texts in a group setting? Waves Coffee and Questions bible study group meets in the lounge at 9am on Saturday mornings and Centering Prayer engages in Lectio Divina, an experience of praying the scriptures, following the silent prayer (all are welcome, or you can come for Lectio Divina alone at 6:30pm)
