Kitchissippi Friday File: KFF February 21, 2020

Order of Service: February 23, 2020 – The New Creed

On January 5th, the first Sunday of Epiphany, I asked those in worship to consider a few images (a doorway, a lightbulb, a person thinking, a star) and to choose the one they thought would be helpful for them during Epiphany.  Leftovers of the cards told me that a large portion of the congregation chose the doorway image. I asked: What doors do you need to walk through?  What doors do you need to close?  What doors do you need to open? These questions captured your attention and so I’ve picked up this theme for Epiphany.
During Black History month, we will be following three parts of Matthew’s Gospel in chapter 5 (the Beatitudes, salt and light and Jesus’ interpretation of the law) and exploring both Have a Heart (an Indigenous project) and Marking the Legacy of Slavery in Canada – both United Church initiatives.  Our engagement with these issues will help us better understand the questions:  What doors do you need to walk through?  What doors do you need to close?  What doors do you need to open? 
Let’s explore together the doorways that lie in front of us?

Rev. Jenni
