Anniversary Sunday – 133 Years!
October 31st @ 10 am
We are pleased to welcome as our guest speaker this year the Rev. Theresa McDonald-Lee, Executive Director of Camp Kintail and formerly the minister of Monkton-Cranbrook pastoral charge. Theresa’s sermon is entitled “Not far from the kin-dom of God.”
Anniversary Sunday this year kicks off a Knox visioning process, led by the Futures Steering Team. This team has been working with Session to develop a three-year strategic plan to help Knox prepare for a new future. As part of this plan, the team will be inviting the congregation to be part of a series of on-line and in-person gatherings during the month of November. These consultations will be a way to involve the whole congregation as we discern together the right directions for our future.
Sunday, Oct 31st, Anniversary Sunday! We are celebrating 133 years of witness, worship, and ministry. This is something to celebrate, and you are invited to attend worship in person, through live-stream, listening on radio, or later on YouTube.
Change! We live in a world defined by change: accelerating technological change, globalization, climate change, growing awareness of systemic inequities, increasing political polarization. Moreover, we are just beginning to emerge from a world-wide pandemic whose repercussions we will be living with for a long time.
This is a time of challenge as well as opportunity. How can we at Knox respond both proactively and creatively to this “new normal” in which we find ourselves? What is the direction in which the Spirit may be calling us?
