I am back to the office this week following a restful and restorative time of hibernation. I want to thank you for making my first Winfield Christmas a wonderful memory and I am so grateful for the ways you made this a special time for me despite the COVID circumstances. It is good to be connecting with you all once again through phone calls and Zoom.
Please scroll down to find the link to the much-talked about Canadian performance, Messiah/Complex. This video has been extended and if you have not seen it yet, you will want to set some time aside to do so. We would also like to grow our Sunday morning participation and Verena has created a button that enables you to share and forward the newsletter or Sunday email to others whom may be interested in joining us.
2021 Winfield United Calendars, created by John Greenough, are going to be soon available. Let the office know if you would like one, and cost is $10. Thank you John for undertaking this project once again. Your included photos will remind us of precious moments when we could still gather in the building and help bridge the time until we can gather again.
We also continue to pray for those in our community and you can find the updated list. If you have a prayer submission or an update on a current concern, please get in touch with me.
With the present public health order extended until February 5th, we continue to experience limited access to the building, Sunday services will continue on Zoom, and the Thrift Store decided to postpone reopening until February 9th. I have noticed a quiet come over the building this week. I hope that this can be a time of creative thinking and dreaming of what we will do when we are able to more fully return to our building. Will we eat together? Play together? Sing together? Share laughter and tears together? May this time of quiet find you healthy as this is what it is all about... so we can be together on the other side of COVID.
Peace to you all,
