CONNECTIONS
News and Views of Oxford County United Churches
THE PERSISTENT SPIRIT
May 12, 2021
In the beginning, the Church was a spiritual movement with no established building or organizational structure overseeing the people as they gathered. The Spirit descended in their midst and they were moved. In this issue, we report on signs of the multi-faceted movement of the persistent Spirit in our midst (Curbside Spirit, remembering colleagues, butterflies, the 1997 London Conference ‘moo-ving into the 21st Century’, Norwich UC’s 200 year history, discerning Pentecost in the Pandemic, Darning Socks to extend their life, as well as Calls to Action both to be in solidarity with Indigenous peoples to advance reconciliation (TRC and Bill C-15) and with those refugees living in dire circumstances in Tigray, Ethiopia. We lift up the place of eco-theology in sorting our way forward and the need to move quickly and intentionally to restore Mother Earth. All of these move us toward A New Community.

Minute For Mission       
 

“Celebrate Deaf Culture on Pentecost”


On Pentecost, diverse languages proclaimed the presence of God. So it’s the perfect day to celebrate the glorious variety of languages and cultures through which God blesses the world, including Deaf culture. Today, few churches welcome persons who are Deaf. That’s why your Mission & Service gifts support inclusion through the Quinte Deaf Fellowship.
