Here's how a number of folks have described why James Bay United Church matters to them in their life ...
This is an opportunity for calling to mind those people who help us find our bearings in a world swirling in relativism …who through their words and actions hold dear and stay clear about the sacredness of life.
I wonder who even one of those people is for you? It maybe someone who is so glad to be alive they have turned you on to the gift of life. It maybe someone who through a question or a greeting, a poem or a novel lit a fire in your soul. It maybe someone whose boldness has lent you courage … or whose courageous silence helped you hear the Spirit’s voice within you.
Who can you name for yourself who helps you get your bearings so that you can take your God-gifted place in the world?
I wonder if you could send along information about those people … as a way of bringing into view more of those people who are gathered around the fire with us.
