Many Waters

Here are a few excerpts from our recent Sunday gathering: Many Waters.

Come, launch the light canoe;
The breeze is fresh and strong:

The summer skies are blue,
And ’tis joy to float along;
Away o’er the waters.
The bright-glancing waters,
The many-voiced waters.
As they dance in light and song.

Susanna Moodie

Today we have gathered and we see that the cycles of life continue.
We have been given the duty to live in balance and harmony
with each other and all living things.
So now, we bring our minds together as one as we give greetings and thanks to each other as people.

(Excerpt from Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address, Greetings to the Natural World)

Lace your boots,
pick up your paddle,
mount your bike and go out
blessing each other—
strong, brave, laughing
and making hope wherever you may.
Amen.

Many Waters Bulletin – final

#ICANTKEEPQUIET

Echo Women’s Choir, celebrating 25 years, continues to provide unique offerings that bridge the classical and contemporary choral spheres while always maintaining a strong commentary on issues facing our world. Their concert “We Can’t Keep Quiet!” takes its name from the #ICANTKEEPQUIET campaign created by American musician MILCK based on her song Quiet. An artist that “finds comfort in discomfort,” MILCK created the campaign to be a rallying call to break cycles of oppression and fear. The song was performed by a guerilla choir during the Women’s March on Washington, DC, on January 21, 2017.

Celebrate Sanctuary North’s 15th Anniversary on November 5th

Saturday, November 5 from 5 to 9 PM Celebrate Sanctuary North’s fifteenth anniversary! There will be supper, a bar, music, entertainment and a slide show of Sanctuary North’s fifteen year history here in the church, 19 Trinity Square. This event is hosted by the Sanctuary North Board and related organizations.
Sanctuary North would not exist if it hadn’t been for a sixty thousand dollar grant that the congregation approved from a “windfall” we received just before the turn of the century. A lot of people from Holy Trinity and San Esteban communities have been involved from the outset though Sanctuary North has welcomed refugees from many different communities.
Please speak with Lee or Michael Creal or Ian Sowton to say you are coming so we can plan for realistic numbers. Email mcreal@yorku.ca It will be a great occasion. A Holy Trinity achievement worth celebrating!
