This Lent, join the many biblical characters who wrestle with a longing for home, like the psalmist who asks, “How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?” In the book Longing for Home, diverse United Church contributors reflect on scripture related to the theme of displacement or uprootedness. They examine topics including poverty, ecology, food sovereignty, migration, the occupied Palestinian territories, and right relations between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.

Our gatherings will include time for reflection/centring/meditation as well as time to share personal stories with each other based on daily readings from book.

The books are available from Rev. Paul for $15.  An ebook is also available for $8 on amazon or @ ucrd.ca.  If the cost of the book is a problem, speak with Rev. Paul.

There will be 2 gatherings each week:

  • An afternoon gathering at 1:00 pm
  • An evening gathering at 7:00 pm

Feel free to come to either or both gatherings. 

Both gatherings will meet each Tuesday from:

  • Feb 20 to April 3.
