Seasonal Message

The Joy of Christmas

 "I BRING YOU GOOD NEWS OF GREAT JOY THAT WILL BE FOR ALL THE PEOPLE” LUKE 2:10     

Colours of the Season.   

Do you have a favourite colour? Do you like several colours? 

Can you see colours as others see them, do you see them differently or perhaps not at all?   Whatever the case may be, you are invited to explore and experience the colours of the Advent and Christmas Seasons. Whether you are already part of this faith community and attend regularly or just once in a while, whether you are curious and just starting on your faith journey, whether you have questions or doubts, whether you have never ventured through the church doors even once in your life…


YOU ARE WELCOME!   


Come and See the Colour of Hope Come and Hear the Colour of Peace Come and Touch the Colour of Joy Come and Feel the Colour of Love Come and Experience What Christmas is all about.   Experience the anticipation, the risk, and the reward that comes with waiting for the Christ Child. You will not be alone - we are all waiting together.   Come just as you are! Jeans, suit, sweat pants. PJ's. It doesn't matter what you wear, where you come from or where you think you're headed. Come and be part of this messy faith family that we call Southminster United Church.   Together we share the joys and celebrations of the seasons, as well as the struggles and heartaches that come our way.  Together we reach out to the world with compassion, we reach into ourselves to draw upon our various gifts and talents, and we reach up to the Holy One, who has brought us together with a purpose and a plan.   There's no doubt we're a colourful bunch. We make mistakes, we get some things right, we do our best with what we have, we guide what we do by keeping centered on Christ, knowing that God is with us every step of the way. We are Not Alone.     


Blessings of Peace, Hope, Joy and Love be with you, 


Rev. Sherry Fugard
