July 4, 2021 – Message from Reverend(s) Glenn and Heather

Hello Folks! We hope today finds you doing better each day as we get closer and closer to seeing the end of restrictions for the pandemic.

Today, our neighbours to the south are celebrating “Independence Day”. It is the crux of everything America stands for since 1775. Their celebrations usually are over the top with all the American fanfare they are famous for.

We will be making an analogy of neighbours, whether a neighbour is a country to the south or on our street or next door to our province we call home.

Now as you know there are many times neighbours are so very necessary. If there is a disaster, like our flood in 1997, or a winter blizzard that catches everyone off guard…well it is nice to know you have a neighbour even if you don’t hang out much. They would be glad to know they can depend on you too.

Neighbours can have a huge span of differences. Our neighbours across the street are Muslim who escaped across the mountains of Afghanistan years and years ago. We have neighbours who are Dutch,Ukrainian, German, Polish, Irish, Scottish, Metis and English. I’m from the Maritimes, which sometimes seems like another country with their dialect differences and way of interpreting speech, and the huge distance to the Atlantic Ocean.

One thing that remains uniquely Canadian and is practiced by most, is the ability to get along. The ability to “live and let live” Thanks to festivals like Folklorama we get a chance to eat, drink, dance and be merry with cultures from all over the world all situated in Winnipeg! Fantastic!

Today is the last Website Message for the Summer and we both want to say, may you have a Summer season full of Health, Wealth and Happiness.

Remember our Principle Two how we acknowledge the Unity and Equality of All. Make the most of your moments and your day. Look for the positives, no matter how small. Remember you can contact us anytime at (204) 390-6609 or (204) 338-5505. May God Bless you and keep you until the Fall when we meet again!
