A REFLECTION FOLLOWING THE NEW ZEALAND MOSQUE MASSACRES   © Andrew King 2019

One day the bullets will melt into flowers.
One day the hoe will be made from the gun.
One day all hate will be stripped of all power
and fear flee like night from the sun.

One day broken hearts will be mended.
One day the hard grieving will be healed.
One day all hating will be ended,
and a new world of oneness be revealed.

One day all arms will spread wide in welcome.
One day all hands will reach out in love.
One day, division will be overcome, forgotten,
and peace soar like song, like the dove.

‘Til that day has come, let the Christian,
the Hindu, the Muslim, the Jew,
strive to love more, to care harder, to listen,
and ever keep compassion and justice in view.

Christ First!


Weaving Milk Bags into Mats!

If you wish to continue donating used milk bags – which are weaved into mats for the homeless as well as other useful items and keeps the plastic out of the landfills – please drop them off at any Mississauga Public Library location as they are no longer picked up from Mazo Crescent.   Thank you.


Prayer Shawl Ministry

As we begin our journey together, we are compiling an e-mail list of those who are currently knitting or crocheting prayer shawls, and those who may be interested in getting involved. This will enable us to be in touch easily, to support the needs of this important ministry. Please send an e-mail to Carol Hennigar at hennigar@sympatico.ca to have your name added to the list.
More info will soon be forthcoming please stay tuned!

Caring for those with Cognitive Impairment

Do you live with, visit, or are you a friend of someone with short term memory loss, dementia, or stroke related symptoms?

In the spring we hope to offer sessions to help us all to communicate better, to give and receive support, and to offer hope to our members and our communities. This is definitely a series to invite friends and neighbours to.

In order to provide these resources to renew ourselves and our neighbours, you may consider acting as a host for one of these events. All of these offerings are open to members, relatives, friends, and the wider communities of Clarkson and Port Credit.

Please contact the church office to express interest in any of these programs at office@christchrch-ucc.com
