This Sunday we celebrate our annual Harvest Home Sunday. This Sunday has deep roots at Emmanuel. We celebrate not only the bringing home of the gathered harvest but we do so in the spirit of thanksgiving for God’s Provision.
God’s Provision is a hard topic. In a painful world how can God’s Providence be among us? When so much is painful in our world and in our experience of being human where is God’s Protection? Does Provision mean Protection? What does all this mean when confronted with Jesus’ assertion that: “All Things are Possible, with God”.
These are some of the themes I am working on for Sunday.
Let us adorn our Sanctuary with the gifts of harvest this Sunday and bring home our fresh fruits and vegetables to support our local community, but let us also bring: our willingness. A willingness to see the work of God among us.
See you Sunday,
Rev. Jenn Hind-Urquhart
