- A Diocesan Memorial Service for Her Majesty will be held at Cathedral Church of St. Paul, London, ON, on THURSDAY, September 22 at 7pm.
- A SEASON OF CREATION: Can we agree that Creation has a voice? Can we agree that there is something in Creation from which we can learn? How might we tap into that wisdom? Where can we go to help us centre our thoughts and reflections about nature?
Social & Ecological Justice Huron resources available on their ministry page, including SERMON SUGGESTIONS (Sunday, September 4 through Sunday, October 2).
- ORANGE SHIRT DAY: METANOIA, a time to turn toward. As we near Orange Shirt Day, or the Day for Truth and Reconciliation (September 30), we are faced with a time to look carefully and theologically at the ways in which we symbolically and liturgically represent reconciliation for our people. While we understand ritual as Anglicans, it is more important now than ever to think clearly about the language we use and the signs and signifiers we employ.
We believe that it is important for each congregation to find the way they will acknowledge this day, to be a true representation of their path to decolonization. This is integral to the process of decolonization itself, which by its very nature is not limited to, or strictly for, Indigenous peoples, but for us all. We must inhabit our ritual, dwell within our sacred symbols; they must be part of us, extensions of our intentions and values, rather than imported traditions and echoes of a colonial past.
We offer suggestions for how to think through the process of designing this liturgy, and the theological reasons for how such liturgies may take shape. CHECK HERE

- EVENTS AT ST. GEORGE'S, LONDON
Tea-ology resumed at St. George's London in September for five weeks beginning on Wednesday, September 14 at 1:30pm in the Upper Parish Hall.
Each week we will reflect on what is important to us in our faith using classics in Christian theology as our guide - fortified by hot tea and delicious dessert. People can contribute as much or as little to the discussion as they wish, or just sit back and listen. The conversations are gently reflective and above all a chance for us to talk about and share our faith together.
Our books for the fall are as follows: Knowing God by the eminent Canadian evangelical theologian James Packer, and an excerpt from Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov called "The Grand Inquisitor" - one of the great classics in Christian fiction. All are welcome!
Word Salad? A Conversation about Key Christian Words
Christian faith, like any religion, has its own language. It deploys a set of terms drawn from the Biblical revelation around which its worship, devotion, and theological reflection are organized. As ordinary believers, we learn ‘to speak Christian’—and so to act and think Christianly—primarily through engagement with the Scriptures, prayers, and hymns of the Church. But these terms apart from theological reflection can sometimes degenerate into a kind of ‘word salad’; words we use without any clear sense of their meaning. This fall we will have an opportunity to reflect together on four primary terms of the Christian vocabulary on four successive Wednesday evenings:
God – October 26
Jesus Christ – November 2
Holy Spirit – November 9
The Human Being – November 16
Each session will begin at 7:00 pm and end at 8:30 pm. There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion. The sessions will be facilitated by the Rev'd Canon Dr. Tim Connor. All are welcome!
