Advent at Home: 'Dare to Imagine!' | Anabaptist World

Happy Advent!
The theme for Advent worship is Dare to Imagine. This season as we prepare and anticipate Christmas, can we dare to imagine God’s hope, peace, joy, and love in our world and in our life? Let’s dare to imagine our path forward with God, toward God’s dream for our world.

Joy to the world!
We are wonders, blessed wonders,
singing joy to the world.
“Solemn Stillness, Weary Streets”

Peace and blessings for a joyous Advent season!

We are People of God’s Peace

We are heralds of God’s peace for the new creation,
and by grace the word of peace reaches every nation.
Though we falter and we fail. Christ will still renew us.
By the Holy Spirit’s power, God is working through us.

based on text by Menno Simons (verse 2)

 

Remembering September 30 as a National Day of Truth and Reconciliation

Posted on: September 29th, 2021 by Breslau Mennonite Church

O God, we are blessed to be a human family, blessed to be on this land, blessed to have neighbours as diverse as your creation. We thank you for Indigenous neighbours and friends.

As a community of faith, we join in the lament of our nation. We lament that historic and contemporary racism continues to mar our relations. We lament the church’s role that privileges settler peoples at the expense of the First Peoples of this land. We lament apathy in the face of the need for change, in ways that make a difference.

For the witness of strength, caring, and love of Indigenous peoples, and for the struggle for what is just and right, open our hearts this day. Encourage us to listen more, to participate in the movements for change that will bring us together in good and respectful ways.

Thank you that truth and reconciliation are possible, not just as a distance point on the horizon but as the work we do every day. Creator, you anchor our commitment to reconciliation and will help us act when we see injustice.

Hear our laments, and grow our hearts full of compassion as we strive to be a better friend and neighbour. We pray in the name of Creator. Amen.

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.

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.
