We are gathering in person this Sunday at 10:30am!
As we head into the holidays we take time this Sunday to consider the gift of simplicity. In the midst of these complicated times, where does simplicity lie
I am trying my best to get into the holiday spirit: we put the tree up early, enjoyed the Festive Cheer box treats (they did not last long!), stream christmas music, and I still can’t seem to feel the season. The unseasonable weather (15C today!) and the rapid rise of the Omicron are throwing me off. Where are the gifts of this season of light, that special time out of time? This Sunday at 10:30am I will be seeking the simple gifts of solstice and Christmas. We will be in person, on Zoom and YouTube. You can give back to Peel Region this Sunday with supplies for our Pathway Mitten Tree and food for the Mississauga Food Bank.

For those struggling this year to find the Christmas spirit, I invite you to join me Tuesday morning on Zoom at 10:30am for a contemplative time of music and poetry, followed by a time to share (see below for details). Let’s take an hour during the week to breathe and be in the midst of uncertainty. May the holiday spirit come to us all this year, the ready and the unready. Blessings, Fiona
