Sunday, November 29
Please join us as we gather for the first Sunday in Advent and the celebration of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
Frances Combs will offer a reflection on the visit of Mary to Elizabeth and Mary's Magnificat, helping us understand that the longing for peace and justice that Mary felt as she awaited the birth of Jesus is the same longing we feel today for peace and justice in Palestine, here in Canada, and around the world.

Services in the fall worship series on Pilgrimage
Several Bathurst United members have undertaken pilgrimages in recent years. At our September and early October services, congregants are hearing about some of those journeys and what they meant to the pilgrims.
On September 13, Rosalinda Paredes reflected on her hike along the Camino de Santiago in June of 2019.
Rosalinda started out at St. Jean Pied de Port, near the border with Spain. One month later, she arrived at Santiago de Compostela. Over 700 kilometres.
On September 20, Sharon Goodier talked about the many kinds of pilgrimages, and what happens to people when they go on one.
On Sunday, September 27, Ken McEvoy delivered a reflection on the trip he and Judi McCallum took to the Middle East in November, 2018. They spent 11 days visiting Holy Land sites in Palestine and Israel.
Ken reviewed the experience in the context of the current situation in Israel-Palestine, and the actions being taken to improve the prospects for peace. He and Judi were on the annual Come and See tour led by Reverend Marianna Harris and George Bartlett.
