Call to Worship:

One: We are invited to God’s banquet
All:  We seek to enter a deeper relationship with the Creator, Son and Holy Spirit
One:  by asking questions, engaging with Scripture, sharing our learning with others,
All:  and the God of peace is with us.
One:  In congregations, universities, and colleges,
All:  we can discover the abundance of God’s grace!
One:  Let us worship the living God with our minds, hearts and bodies.
All: We lift our hearts and voices in praise!

Give us grace to love and serve you,
Living what we pray and sing.

Today, we welcome the Rev. Brian Bork, Chaplain at the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University. Originally from London, he has been working on these campuses for nearly ten years. Brian is available to students by appointment and keeps office hours on both campuses. He hosts a pub discussion group called Fermented Faith, participates in the Collective Kitchen for students here at Knox as well as hosting a Breakfast Book Club for faculty and staff. He’s working on developing a Waterloo chapter of the Canadian Christian Scientific & Christian Affiliation.
