New Vision Notes Thursday July 20 2017

Summer slow. It’s great to see people out on Sunday mornings this time of year. The rhythm of our gathering is a little different.

The results across the United Church on the four questions all United Church pastoral charges were asked to vote on are in. The majority of us voted in favour of the changes. When the United Church’s next General Council ratifies the vote in 2018 the structure of the church changes, the way we fund the national level of the church changes, and the oversight and support of ministry vocations changes. Whew. That’s a lot of change. But we know at New Vision that’s the least of it. We are called into new ways of being in community as people of faith. That’s the new vision.

See you Sunday, if not some other time in the next week.

Rev. Ian
