Kith and Kin
Living in relationship comes with responsibility, if we are connected to others then we are also involved, helping out where we can, holding needed boundaries with care, and showing up for one another. This Sunday at 10:30am we look at ways we understand our relationships with animals – from the donkey in the stable at Christmas to the sacred cows of India – how can we widen the circle to include kinship with animals?

Food Bank Collection
During the service on Sunday, December 16, donations of cheques, cash or food will be collected for the Mississauga Food Bank. If donating, please include your name and address to enable staff at the food bank to issue a letter of gratification for your donation. Thank you.
We are also continuing with the sock drive for those who struggle with homelessness.
This season can be a struggle, with the tensions between consumerism and generosity, family expectations and personal well being, and the call to be merry with very real feelings of grief or depression. Be kind to yourself. Know you are welcome in this chalice community just as you are.
