Connecting

Good Morning All,

As I emerged from a wonderful gathering with many of you on Sunday. I started absorbing the news and have done so ever since.    There are many interconnections, which go well beyond Nova Scotia, and I’m sure we all have our own ways of reacting and responding.   

Know that I’m here for conversation with any of you- by phone or we can set up a Zoom time.  I’m on Zoom one weekday evening a week- if I can manage it- this week it was Tuesday, other weeks probably Wednesdays or Thursdays- and I’ll be here for virtual coffee on Friday [link. https://us02web.zoom.us/j/8925717799

If this is helpful to you , there are the following opportunities to gather and connect:

1. Facebook Live – I’ll be there most evenings, usually at 7 p.m. ,  Wednesdays at 9 p.m. .  Just 15 minutes of reflection and prayer, which you can see in real time on my Jane Doull Facebook page, or you can watch it there or on the church page later..

2.  Wed. April 22 the United Church of Canada is offering a prayer vigil starting 2 p.m. Atlantic time  to join our hearts together across the United Church and across Canada, to offer prayer, to share in grief, to hold the victims, their families and friends, the clergy and leaders of the Colchester County in love and support.  Please see the YouTube link below.

3.  Friday at 7 p.m.  there will be a Virtual Vigil  Nova Scotia Remembers on Facebook and on Youtube.  I’m not exactly sure how you would access it if not on FB but we will try to get something onto the website.

These 2 latter initiatives are attempts to overcome some of the limitations imposed by our necessary self-isolation across Canada.

Whatever your choices- conversation, vigils or otherwise- please do remember our Nova Scotian friends in your prayers.  And please don’t hesitate to send an email or pick up the phone if you’d like to talk .

blessings to all in these difficult days as we shine a light for each other where we can.

Jane

Maundy Thursday invitation

Thursday April 9th 2020, 5:40pm or/and 7pm

As advertised already but now with an additional feature.   If you would like to log on early, Jane will open the door to the virtual Zoom room at 5:40pm for a virtual potluck.

You get to eat real food but you ‘ll need to provide your own, while enjoying conversation with friends.  Some of us have been eating alone quite often and we might be happy to have some company.  

Then we will take a break and start our contemplative gathering at 7pm.   

That will give any supper-eaters a chance to put away dishes and settle into a more contemplative vein, while any who had other supper plans can come in and get comfortable .  We may, just may, have a special guest or two with us., who couldn’t have been with us at a physical gathering.  Time will tell. 

If you haven’t done Zoom before . it’s not hard.  The link below should do it.  The phones are just in case you can’t connect via computer.  It’s nice to be able to see everyone’s faces, as we don’t get to do that much these days!
