Origami fun at Outdoor Church
Did you enjoy learning some origami on Sunday during Outdoor Church? (Did it get a little damp?)
During our summer liturgy, after the Prayer of Confession, everyone is invited to write a prayer on one of two paper symbols: either a leaf shape to represent what you are cultivating, or a simple folded bird to represent what you are letting go.
Perhaps you felt a little fumble-fingered and would like to practice at home? Here are the instructions for the little bird Youtube link. It would be wonderful if someone has a photo of the prayer origami to share…
To launch us into the summer series, Angela shared “The Wisdom of the Fig Tree, by Lisle Gwynn Garrity of “A Sanctified Art”. This is a visual and spoken mediation on the parable of the fig tree in Luke 13:1-9. What does it bring up in you? Video link (less than 4 minutes long)

Southpoint Gathering Groups
These are designed also to show care and be neighbourly – let your group facilitators know that you’re limping a little. Let’s lift each other up. If you’re not sure to which GG you belong, contact Karin (email).
Here, we hold space particularly to hear the sorrow/worry in hearts of those whose journeys are right now hard.
For news of Grant, who is in hospice, his photo, and an updated message from Loriane, visit here. If you’d like to drop by his window at the hospice, please contact their son, Daryl (email).
If you have a confidential prayer need, please send it to the first link in the chain, John Hardy (email).

Our summer invitation is to pay attention to God, our Master Gardener, and God’s actions in and around us. We invite God to unearth in us what lies fallow, what needs to be tended, and what needs to die for new life to emerge. We embrace the practise of cultivating and letting go using resources created by A Sanctified Art (website).

If an Outdoor Church needs to be cancelled (for Covid reasons, or due to inclement weather!) you will receive an email on Sunday morning by 8:30 am from Karin (firstname.lastname@example.org) to alert you.
Small Group Zoom is an option for those unable to attend an outdoor gathering. It is a time of fellowship and not a ‘led’ service. It will NOT replace Outdoor Church if weather cancels it.
