Ongoing Activities & Courses (Lent 2021)
Gospel Based Discipleship
Gospel Based Discipleship, a gift from our Indigenous sisters and brothers, is a method of prayer that centres our community and personal lives in the Gospel. It is a practice of learning to listen to, and listening to learn from, the scriptures and each other.
After repeated readings of a passage, it asks participants to share their responses to these 3 simple questions:
1) What word(s), idea(s), or phrase(s) stand out for you?
2) What is Jesus (the Gospel) saying to you?
3) What is Jesus (the Gospel) calling you to do?
Join us Wednesday nights at 7pm for our online practice of Gospel Based Discipleship (click here to connect). This is a drop in group, so all are welcome, and no preparation is required for participation (although if you would like, you can find the readings here).
Anglican Origins: Uncovering the Roots of our Tradition
Throughout Lent, the Diocese of Quebec will be hosting an online course from Montreal Dio called Anglican Origins: Uncovering the Roots of Our Tradition. This course will trace the path of Christianity in Britain from its earliest arrival to the development of Anglicanism in its modern context. Participants will also look at revivals within Anglicanism and its spread worldwide. Following each session, participants in our diocese will gather together via Zoom for an after-class with Bishop Bruce, who will guide us in reflecting on each class.
This group will be meeting Tuesday, February 23, and March 2, 9, 16 and 23; 7:00-8:30 pm EST for the course and 8:30-9:00 pm EST for the after-class.
All participants will be given Zoom links to participate from home. To sign up for the course, click here, or for any inquiries, please contact the Rev'd Canon Giuseppe Gagliano.
Lenten Book Club
Starting February 25th at 7pm, our Thursday evening lenten book club will begin, where we will discussing Robin Wall Kimmerer's Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants.
We chose this book because we believe that listening to Indigenous ways of knowing, and how those ways of knowing are being reclaimed and joined with scientific ways, might teach us something about how we might discern faithful discipleship in our seemingly apocalyptic times.
