New Vision Notes Fri Feb 11 2022

Fri Feb 11 2022

  1. New Vision’s 2022 Annual Meeting will be virtually held again this year following worship this Sunday, Feb 13. The 2021 Annual Report is available electronically through the New Vision website as it was last year. It was issued and published on Threshold Partner and friends page on our website on Monday, February 7.
  2. We’ll have a short all-purpose break after worship and invite you to provision yourself with lunch so we can begin the meeting roughly 15 minutes after our gathering for worship concludes.
  3. We will begin in-person worship together at 24 Main W. again commencing Sunday February 27 with the usual attention to social distancing, vaccination and masking. Our person limit will be 25 people.
  4. It may be too early to express optimism, but if the current subsiding of the omicron variant is not replaced by any new Covid variant as threatening, we could be able fully to gather as a community again in worship in-person for Easter.
  5. This is a warm thought on a winter’s day.
  6. Some Black History Month news:
  7. The African Canadian Caribbean Association (ACCA) is presenting a Black History Month Celebration during Winterfest. It occurs on Feb 18 from 6-8 pm at Auchmar, 88 Fennell Ave W. It includes live performances by Mosa McNeilly, Aisha Nicholson, Klyde Broox and Narret Jamais. Free. Parking in the St. Joseph’s West 5th parking lot as well as good transit service to the location.
  8. New Vision Virtual Worship is experiential, participatory, image-rich and collective, just like worship in person at New Vision! Join us on Sunday mornings 10:30 am week to week during the Covid-19 emergency by clicking here. If you want to put the link someplace easy to find each week, here it is: Please share it with others and invite them to a “different” kind of time on Zoom from the usual.
  9. You can also call in to the gathering on the telephone toll free. Call 1 647 374 4685, then, when prompted, input the Meeting ID 782 292 511 followed by the # sign. Ignore the prompts for Participant ID and Password. You are in when the recorded voice says, “You are in the meeting.” If you can only connect by video on your computer with no audio, you can use the phone connection for audio and the computer connection for visual.

Hope to see you Sunday again, or for the first time –

Rev Ian
