Summer Worship 2021 – Consider the Trees in the Bible

Posted on: July 20th, 2021 by Breslau Mennonite Church

With summer worship, we are encouraged to consider trees in the Bible. It may surprise us to learn about the variety of trees mentioned in scripture. The lessons trees offer, and the stories told under or near a tree. Trees have a significant role in the biblical account: blessing and promise, comfort and challenge, healing and hope.

A Prayer for Lent

Posted on: February 24th, 2021 by Breslau Mennonite Church

Loving God, increase my strength, this Lenten season, to persevere day by day in our growing intimacy. Bless the depth of my ache for belonging so that I can reach the depth of your love for me. Expand my desire for a life of holiness with you. Communicate to me your energy and your love. Take me with you to the depth and heights of radiant Love. Amen.    

 

 

Prayer for a New Year

Posted on: December 28th, 2020 by Breslau Mennonite Church

This is a day of new beginnings,
time to remember and move one,
time to believe what love is bringing,
laying to rest the pain that’s gone.
Christ is alive, and goes before us
to show and share what love can do.
This is a day of new beginnings
our God is making all things new.

Text by Brian Wren
“This is a day of new beginnings”

Prayer for a New Year –
In the year gone by, in the year to come, right at this moment, God is with us. In God’s love,
creation is held. In God’s hope, new life is given. In God’s peace, we begin anew!
Alleluia! Amen.

 

 

On the road…

Posted on: November 27th, 2020 by Breslau Mennonite Church

. . . to readiness, repentance, restoration, revelation, rejoicing, radiance.

This is the theme for worship in the Advent – Christmas season. Mary and Joseph, the shepherds, the story of the magi were on the road, drawing close to Bethlehem, to the birth of Jesus, to worship the Prince of Peace.

Wherever we find ourselves along the way of life and faith, we are invited to come near, closer to Jesus.

Hope – Peace – Joy – Love to you in this season of Advent and Christmas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christ is our peace:

whom the prophets called “the Prince of Peace,” born for “Peace on earth, goodwill toward all,” who died to make peace, and appeared in a resurrected body saying, “Peace be with you.” 

Grace, mercy, and peace be with you.

We might find our faith deepening as we experience church in new ways during the outbreak of Covid-19.
Things continue to rapidly change. We are living in fragile times. How are you doing?

We are experiencing church in new ways, being community at a distance, and this may deepen or renew our faith. We will be very thankful for worship together, in person, when we can meet safely again. In this time online weekly worship is available from the main page of our church website www.breslaumc.ca

We can do things to make this a special time in our households. We can remember those with needs in our neighbourhood and in our world. Reaching out with a phone call or an email to say “hello”, to show care is greatly appreciated. Keeping connected keeps all of our spirits up.

This is a time for prayer. We can talk with God about our worries. We can pray for our families, those in need across Canada and around the world. We can pray for medical professionals and all those who serve seniors, those who are vulnerable in our communities. We can pray for our Prime Minister and all government leaders in our country and world-wide.

In this unusual time, in all times, we remember that God is with us, we are never alone.
Thanks be to God!

Pastor Eleanor

 

 

Lent 2020

Posted on: March 3rd, 2020 by Breslau Mennonite Church

Remember Creator God’s love for each person and for creation.
Recall God’s desire for us to be people of peace, justice, and friendship.
We pray for peace – before us, behind us, under our feet; peace within us, over us, let all around us be peace.

(based on a Navaho prayer by David Haas)
