Heritage Sunday Celebration – Taste of the Nations Recipe Collection


Inspired by a reading about breaking bread together, Ellian Seto suggested what has become “A Taste of the Nations” activity within the Mission and Outreach Committee. That was 16 years ago and the suggestion to offer hospitality without grumbling, as in Peter’s message from 1 Peter 4:9 has become an annual event. It coincides with our Heritage Sunday celebrations the last Sunday in February. That service includes prayers of unity, love and recognition in 5 different languages and a parade of more than 30 Flags representing the countries of origin of members of our congregation. ​ ​

This year, since we are not able to gather for this feast of sharing and hospitality in person, the M&O committee decided to create a cookbook of recipes from around the world, submitted by members of the congregation. We would like to offer everyone a copy of this cookbook and encourage you, if you are able, to make a donation to the Presbyterian World Service and Development organization.​ ​

Please join us for our summer sermon series entitled ‘Leadership in Crisis’ where we will journey with biblical figures such as Samuel, Saul, David, Solomon and Jesus to discover how they coped with the successes and failures of their leadership roles. Is there anything we can learn from them for our own contexts?

This Father’s Day, David takes on Goliath in an iconic battle.

The Special Listening Committee re. LGBTQI, also known as Rainbow Communion, was established by the General Assembly in 2017 to respond to the call to repent of the harm caused by homophobia and hypocrisy in the church.

At the 2021 General Assembly, the Rainbow Communion Listening Committee reported on their work. As part of the report, a poignant and painful video summary of the shared stories was presented using voice actors to protect anonymity.

The Assembly affirmed that all people, whatever their sexual orientation or gender identity, are equally beloved by God.

Listen to this thoughtful presentation by Imam Muneeb Nasir. Delegates to last week’s General Assembly of The Presbyterian Church in Canada were invited to hear recorded greetings from Imam Muneeb Nasir, Co-Chair, of the National Muslim Christian Liaison Committee. In his speech, the Imam points out the many commonalities between Islam and Christianity and encourages us to get to better know our Muslim neighbours and fellow citizens. The Committee is a forum for respectful dialogue on things of common interest between Canadian Muslims and Christians. These words, recorded prior to the murders of a Muslim family in London, Ontario, take on new significance in light of those events.
