MESSAGE FROM YOUR MINISTER: OCTOBER 2, 2020
Saint Francis of Assisi, born in 12th century Italy, is known as a lover of nature and an advocate for peace and harmony. He reputedly lived a humble life of service, dedicated to rebuilding church ruins as sacred places of refuge. To this day, his chapel in Assisi is a pilgrimage destination for many, who have been sustained by a sense of love and joy, when reciting his prayer. The Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi is one my mother taught me and it has uplifted me over the years. It’s one of those rare prayers that pretty much says it all in a concise, yet poetic, manner. For instance, the reader is encouraged to replace conflict, hatred, injury, doubt, despair, depression, sadness with peace, love, forgiveness, faith, hope, lightness of being, joy.
Right now, at this point in time, we’re being called to focus on these seven positive items, as we try to create a more contemplative worship style that will respect all COVID-19 guidelines. It’s not every day that we get an invitation to centre ourselves and be inspired by the spiritual energy that surrounds us. Sometimes, in our busyness (yes, even during this pandemic!), we’re oblivious to the call in scripture to “Be still and know that I am GOD.” Here’s our chance to learn more about the meditative and ascetic aspects of Christianity, which enrich us with prayers like that of Saint Francis.
Of course, changing the way we worship is a work in progress, but we can find inspiration to keep on track from this week’s Epistle reading: “I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made…. Friends, don’t get me wrong. By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward…. I’m off and running and I’m not turning back.” The Message: Philippians 3: 12-14
