  Description: Rev. Susan & Rev. David have a conversation about sharing the good news. Deacons were appointed to take care of those in need in the new Christian community. In the United Church, we are quite good at taking care of each other and helping out in the community. Apostles were to share the good news and speak the message of God's love as known through Jesus. In the United Church, we are quieter and more reserved. Here are some ideas for being able to speak our faith.
  Date: Sunday, November 17, 2019       Teacher: Revs. Susan/David     Duration: 8 mins 45 secs    
  Description: Rev. David and Rev. Susan have a conversation about what it means to be church. When we choose to belong to a congregation, we find a place to make sense of our lives and grow meaning in our relationship with God, we find a sense of belonging and significance, and we deepen and share the values that are important to us, values that come from the teachings of Jesus.
  Date: Sunday, October 13, 2019       Teacher: Revs. Susan/David     Duration: 9 mins 25 secs    
  Description: Rev. Susan & Rev. David have a conversation about gratitude. As followers of Jesus, we are called to practice gratitude - which goes far beyond feeling thankful. It is a choice of a way of life that involves looking for what we have to be grateful for in all circumstances. In a society where there is so much hate-filled speech, so many death threats and sexual assault threats leveled at those in any sort of leadership position, it is more important than ever that we practice gratitude to counter this.
  Date: Sunday, September 08, 2019       Teacher: Revs. Susan/David     Duration: 14 mins 58 secs    
  Description: Rev. Susan & Rev. David chat about the important of being together as a congregation. We have created, to borrow Brian McLaren's words, "a studio of love", where together we study and explore the teachings of Jesus, where we allow our lives to be shaped by God's love, and where we learn to express that love in many ways, becoming more loving versions of ourselves. We need each other. We don't have to do it alone. We need to be hope, love, care, challenge & comfort for each other.
  Date: Sunday, August 25, 2019       Teacher: Revs. Susan/David     Duration: 19 mins 50 secs    
Passage: Genesis 2:2-3 & Psalms 23:1-6    
  Description: Rest is essential - a time away so that we can come back with refreshed minds and spirits and see things in new ways. That is what sabbatical is about. Rev. David and Rev. Susan shared some photos as well as a description of what they did and learned on their sabbatical. The photos can be found under the Worship Tab - Sermons in Print - if you want to see what they were talking about. However, listening to this recording should give you the full picture as well.
