New Vision Notes Thursday Jan 17 2019

We’ve had web-host server problems for the last few weeks that are finally sorted out. Happy New Year to you!

New Vision folks can be involved in a couple of events this Sunday in addition to our usual Sunday morning worship at 10:30 am.

The Afro-Canadian Caribbean Association is hosting its second annual Martin Luther King Jr. Social Justice Brunch at 1:30 pm at 754 Barton St. E. They’ve asked New Vision to come and asked me to be part of a panel on “Keeping the Dream Alive” — how we can bring the dream of beloved community to life in Hamilton. Tickets ($30 ea) can be purchased by phoning 905 385 0925. Other panelists are Kayonne Christy, co-founder of McMaster Womanist, Max Lightstone, founder of McMaster Interfaith Council and Nrinder Nann, City Councilor for Ward 3. Join me if you can in this vital and never-ending work (and celebration).

At 4:30 pm on Sunday, New Vision is hosting its January Jazz Vespers in the Music Hall featuring Mike Malone on the trumpet and the poems of Emily Dickinson. Mike will be backed up by pianist Nancy Walker subbing for Adrean Farrugia, and bassist Clark Johnston and drummer Chris Wallace.  Hamilton Spectator music beat reporter Leonard Turnevicius featured this month’s vespers in a great article today “These are not your traditional vespers.”

I’ll be at all three events on Sunday, so I hope to see you Sunday ~
