Sunday, September 15: As we gather for our first Ember Day of the new church year we reflect on Psalm 104, one of the few "creation psalms" in the Bible. We also hear an excerpt from Making All Things New by Ilia Delio, a Franciscan sister who is also a trained scientist. In "Cosmic Incarnation" James will reflect on how we need to expand our understanding of "incarnation".

 Sunday, September 22: We will reflect together on Luke 16:19-31. This famous parable about poor Lazarus who is ignored by the rich person at whose gate he sat day after day is sober food for thought for all of us in the Global North

 Sunday, October 6: Community Welcome Sunday: We are planning a special Sunday celebration. We all know what a wonderful congregation RHUC but we tend to keep our light under a bushel. It's a shame that we don't tell more people about this church because studies show time and again that the most effective way to grow as a congregation is for those who attend to invite others to join them. So let's do just that! Postcard invitations as well as posters are being drawn up. We plan to have an engaging worship service with opportunities afterward for people to mix and mingle, especially with people who are part of the various ministries and programs that make RHUC such a special place. We are seeking people who can be "ambassadors" of our activities, on hand to answer some questions, jot down some contact information, etc. We also plan to have finger food and other refreshments as we take time to get to know one another. This Community Welcome Sunday is a great opportunity for us to invite our friends, neighbours, co-workers, workout buddies to RHUC. Let's put our light on a lampstand and share with others what a great church this is. 

 Three Rivers Forest Church: at 3:00 pm on Sunday Sept. 22, we will gather to celebrate the coming of autumn in a ritual of reflection and thanksgiving. This Forest Church celebration will be in James' backyard (19 Church St. S.)
