UnitedAgainstRacisim

Remembering August 1 

On August 1st, we celebrated the end of slavery in Canada, which took place on this date in 1834. But we recognize that the condemnation of racism is an ongoing battle.

UCC Moderator Richard Bott is quoted saying, “I am asking people in the United Church to delve into this topic individually and at church boards. If we don’t look at this issue and realize we are part of the problem, we can’t be part of the solution. This is the work of White members of the church, and the time has come to commit ourselves to this work, for everyone’s sake.”

Throughout the month of September, a small group met to discuss the bestseller White Fragility, written by Robin DiAngelo. Racism is a deadly problem, and we can’t fix it overnight. But it needs to start with white people, taking one step at a time, on a path seeking a world of true equality.

The Christ First, United We Walk Team, assembled to support The Compass annual fundraising walk, knocked it out of the park this year.  The walkers raised $2,200 including $1,000 raised by the efforts of John Hammel and Elisabeth Evans.  How they have time to walk after tending our beautiful gardens we'll never know. See their story in the Happengings.

Important Dates

  • Essentrics – Tuesday & Thursday mornings
  • Quilting Group – Tuesday mornings
  • Coffee Hour- Port Credit Campus
  • Lenten Bible Study - The Rev. Dr. Ted Lutz – Monday evenings
  • Sip ‘n Serve-Wednesday mornings
  • Spring Thing schedule for April 25 postponed

This is the time when we usually start accepting applications for the upcoming fall Treats ‘n’ Treasures Christmas Marketplace, planned for Saturday, November 21, 2020. 

 

However, given the unusual circumstances that we are living in with the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing need for social and physical distancing, the Marketplace committee has decided to delay the process until Public Health officials and the Premier of Ontario have provided further guidelines and timelines for re-opening our communities.

 

We appreciate your patience with this process, as we are all finding our way with the "new normal".  At present the church is closed and our services are online.

 

Thank you for your patience and your support of this craft show.

 

Please watch this space for further information and please save the date!
