Christmas Movie Coming Soon...

Last Sunday a very awesome bunch of 35 were movie stars for the day. Shot on location at St James' Park, THE CHRISTMAS STORY features a bunch of hardworking shepherds, enthusiastic angels, confused wise guys, a misunderstood innkeeper, two proud parents and of course, the reason for the season, Jesus.

THE CHRISTMAS STORY will premiere at the Family Christmas Service on Sunday December 9th, 10am, at the Chapel Street Centre.

For a glimpse of what's to come, watch the trailer here:

Blind art

Last week we heard the story of Bartimaeus, who was blind. We talked about what it might be like to not have the use of our eyes. We tried some activities blindfolded, such as walking through a maze (with a helper calling out directions), and drawing a self-portrait, blind.

Monica took this literally, and first drew a picture of "herself wearing a blindfold." Then, she tried to draw "herself, wearing a blindfold". What a difference between the two pictures. It sure helps being able to see what you're doing.

The story was a reminder to us about including and welcoming everyone, no matter if they are different to us in any way.  


What is God Like?

 Listen to Rev Anne read this beautiful book, 'What is God Like?' by Rachel Held Evans and Matthew Paul Turner. https://youtu.be/eq6...
