What does it mean to be a people of vision when it’s cloudy?  Especially, when those clouds are thunderclouds?  When we feel surrounded on all sides by hostile forces and there is an exhausting amount of work ahead, how do we live with joy and purpose?

Guest Speaker Dr. Richard Hordern
Of all the reform movements arising out of the 19th century, arguably none had as extensive a reach as the Social Gospel. Faced with the new realities of urban overcrowding, grueling factory work, and grinding poverty, Christians in North America questioned whether their focus should be on the salvation of the individual or of society as a whole.
Dr. Richard Hordern is a retired professor of religious studies at Luther College on the University of Regina. His specialty area of research was liberation theology, especially Black Theology in the United States. Today, he gave an introduction to the early history of Social Gospel in Canada, the U.S. and England.

Guest Minister: Rev. Fulgence Ndagijimana

The Edict of Torda was proclaimed in 1568 by King Sigismund of Romania and followed an earlier decree of religious tolerance in 1567. The Protestant Reformation has made significant gains in Europe, including the once largely Catholic Transylvania. The queen had been inspired by the teachings of her Italian physician, Giorgio Biandrata. In 1563 the Transylvanian court preacher is credited with saying "we need no think alike to love alike". Rev. Fulgence Ndagijimana will share his thoughts about the Edict of Torda and its importance today. Do we need to let go of some preconceptions?

Reflections on the theme of letting go, leaving the familiar. Is it time for you to do some letting go too? How about the idea that you can do it all alone, is it time to let go of that?
