  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.

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.

Passage: Psalms 104:1-24    
  Description: A conversation between Rev. David & Rev. Susan about honouring God as the higher power in our lives, why we believe in God, and how science points us in that direction. We bless you today, o God, for you are great beyond imagining. You are clothed with honour and majesty, wrapped in light as a garment, draped in the beautiful deep darkness of space. Your love wraps the earth, underlying all that is. You do not intervene and interrupt the free will you gave us; yet you are always offering the influence & wisdom of your love. You, who are divine, invite us, who are human, to be partners in the mending and tending and repair of this earth. We bless you today, o God, for you are great beyond imagining, and yet, you love and know us, comfort and care for us, calling us to the Way of Jesus, for the healing of lives and planet. You, o God, are our higher power, the greatest gift of all. Amen.
