For more information, please visit: downtownyonge.com/playtheparks
Time: 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Location: Trinity Square Park
What: A musical pub night for members (of Holy Trinity) and guests in the old chapel. We’ll gather and listen to live music and sing some great songs together, talk, dance and share libations and maybe hatch some plans. (Live performances from about 8-10pm)
Our nominal theme this month is politics and protest.
Please join us as we present “Nymphs & Shepherds”, our salute to the madrigal rage that swept England for the last decade of Elizabeth’s reign and beyond. All of this frivolity will be balanced by a few more sober compositions including William Byrd’s jewel, the Mass for Five Voices. Continue reading May 30 & 31 Cantemus Singers Concerts

While empire in Jesus’ time consisted of distinct forms of oppression including military occupation, violence, unjust taxation, and slavery, … we have to look deeper and wider to put a recognizable face on empire. … As stated in To Seek Justice and Resist Evil, contemporary “empire is not dominated by any single state but by a network of powerful economic interests held together by the ideology of neoliberalism,” and furthermore, is a system in which most of us play some role, wittingly or unwittingly.
Living Faithfully in the Midst of Empire, United Church of Canada, 2006
We acknowledge that we gather upon the traditional territories of the Mississauga Anishaabeg, Haudenosaunee and Wendat Indigenous Peoples, the original nations of this land, who continue to cry out for justice.
prelude – Entry of the Kings
Opening – Prepare ye the way of the lord
Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem was not a simple act of obedience to God, following some preordained path to destruction and ancient prophesy. It was a radical challenge to an Empire that could not be physically resisted. It was a powerful act of political theatre and call to revolutionary change that still reverberates today. Unfortunately, empire continues to dominate our lives.
Let us prepare ourselves to join Christ’s parade into Jerusalem by first asking each other for forgiveness. Continue reading Disrupting Empire – service text
The story of Palm Sunday is a story of theatrical resistance: a usurping of entrenched authority. The procession into Jerusalem parodied the imperial triumphus of the roman occupiers and even that of earlier Jewish kings. Christ’s entry into Jerusalem claimed the imagery of power and turned it on its head–a donkey, not a war horse; children, beggars, parents and labourers, not an army and priests. His entry proclaimed not imperial power, but a new realm of peace: a place where what matters are not the powers, but the people and the land itself.
Join Fallen Angles and the whole community of Holy Trinity as we consider Christ’s disruptive power in the face of empire, both then and now, in story, movement and song.
