Join Lee-Ann on a journey with the Psalms. We’ll spend some time in quiet reflection with contemporary versions of these ancient prayers, and share, as we are comfortable, with how they speak to us today. Bring a journal for your reflections and colorful pencils or markers if you’re inclined to be creative.
The small group process will use the Touchstones from Parker Palmer’s Circle of Trust and include Psalms from Nan C. Merrills collection, Psalms for Praying – An Invitation to Wholeness. Please let Lee-Ann know if you will be joining the group – email@example.com
During the summer Northlea United Church and Leaside Prebyterian Church hold joint summer services. This year, during the month of July, Sunday services, starting at 10:30, will be held at Leaside Presbyterian Church. In August and on the first Sunday in September, joint services will be held here, at Northlea United Church.
Summer Bike Drive Ends
The Refugee Response Group organized a Summer Bike Drive this year in co-operation with Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office (TNO). The aim was to collect bikes and present them to TNO for distribution to refugee families in the area covered by TNO. We would like to say Thank You to all those who made a contribution to this drive which resulted in a total of 40 bikes being collected for use by refugee families. Contributions came from a condominium building having a clear-out to individuals gifting long loved bikes to this great cause. Contributions ranged from road bikes to children’s bikes. Thanks to the staff at Northlea United Church who allowed temporary storage of the bikes while being collected. Pictures show the bikes awaiting dispatch to TNO.
Join us for a quiet, contemplative Summer Solstice Labyrinth
Walk. The evening will begin with prayers and readings,
includes time for quiet reflection, a candle lit walk, creative
collage expressions, and all with Summer friendly music.
