4th Sunday of Advent

by Dec 19, 2020Pastor's Blog

Almost there! This week our theme is love! The season of Advent invites us to prepare our hearts, and to discover and rediscover how much God loves us! The Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall has a beautiful new initiative with The Call Home! Shirley gives a great witness to the experience of God’s love in her life. I invite you to view the full video when you have time this week, in preparation for the great celebration of Christmas. Let me know what you think.

We are all getting ready now with last minute preparations! I enjoyed my video call with the school, sharing a few prayers, music, and joy! I have been loving our Advent Series too, our weekly concerts every Sunday afternoon. This Sunday, 2pm, will be our last one, and it is my honour once again to accompany a few of the musicians in some of their songs! This last concert will be live again via YouTube.

My weekly meeting with James, our Communication Consultant, went well this morning. You’ll notice our new YouTube channel, which he now maintains for us. He spoke of cleaning up some of the videos – adding titles, new thumbnails, and possibly creating a second video to view and hear the Sunday homily. Indeed, the option for live stream is picking up speed, and in the new year we will continue to discern its best use for us! However, we continue to search for volunteers to help with this project. We are looking for help maintaining the website with WordPress, technical skills using OBS Software to run the 2 cameras while we are live, and possibly helping out with Zoom. We continue to prepare for our next Alpha Sessions (again, with Zoom). Please let me know if the tech team interests you, or if you are willing to participate in another ministry. Have a great week. Remember, God loves you! Peace.
