Summer Reflection
The fall is my favourite season. I love the cooler days and nights, the changing colours of the 
leaves and the routine of the school year.

This year, like so many other familiarities, the structure of school is no longer a sure thing. Everything has changed and I wonder, how do we best go forward in our new reality. I also wonder how we as a community of faith can support each other and our community in the midst of this changing world.

In the book of Jeremiah Chapter 29, the prophet writes “ 4 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat what they produce. 6 Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give your daughters in marriage, that they may bear sons and daughters; multiply there, and do not decrease.” I find great comfort and direction from Jeremiah’s words.

Regardless of the uncertainty this pandemic brings, we stay the course, do what we have always done and live the gospel message of hope, justice and compassion.

Thanks be to God.
