SUNDAY SERVICES IN JANUARY

January 2019 Theme: CREATING THE NEW

For many people, the arrival of the New Year is a simple matter; it’s a time to party on New Year’s Eve and then, in the morning, to make a raft of resolutions with the uneasy sense that the raft may sink not too long after launching.  Among those who hold to older traditions, there is the understanding that bringing a really new, New Year requires both hard spiritual work and celebration.

Many indigenous North American nations believed that the lighting of fires and the chanting of many prayers were necessary to bring back the light. Households in parts of the British Isles still follow the tradition of the “First Footer,” the belief that the first person to enter the house in the New Year should be a dark-haired man carrying a lump of coal, a loaf of bread, and a bottle of whisky. This tradition seems to signify the recognition that darkness will continue in the New Year, and that newness will require fire, good food, and celebration.

So let us acknowledge that the coming year will contain darkness, like all other years, and that we can create the new by bringing to 2018 the fire of spirit, the nourishment of community built on principles of equality and respect for nature, and the wonderful gift of celebration.

INSPIRATIONAL EXPLORATIONS WEDNESDAYS: JANUARY 2019

 

Inspirational Explorations Wednesdays replaces Oneness Wednesdays with a more diverse program that seeks contributions from all attendees of the Church of Truth, whether members, or (we hope) prospective members. You are invited to bring a proposal for an IE Wednesday to the January 16 meeting, where we intend, together, to plan IE evenings for February and March. If you are nervous about facilitating a whole evening, you can also propose a panel, a joint session etc. Further information from the IE co-coordinators: Chris Bullock (chrisbullock@shaw.ca ); John Vanden Heuvel (sunvann@yahoo.ca ), Peggy Muncaster (muncasterpeggy@gmail.com )
