Pastoral Message

Welcome to Home Worship for July 5, 2020

The words from Romans 7: “I do not understand my own actions.  For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate” used to resonate with me when I was younger.  It summarizes the struggles I experienced.

Please follow my homily to read or listen to my reflection on "Conflicted Self".  

This week, our sisters and brothers from Iona will join us virtually, since the Rev. Robert Reid is on vacation this month.  You are invited to read through the order of service to worship God, even though we are separate physically, but we are united in one Spirit. 

Do click on the links for the YouTube music to sing along, and listen to my homily on the audio file, if you wish.

May God's peace & blessings be with you!
Fr. Victor

Message from Bishop Andrew Asbil

Dear Friends in Christ:

“How many Anglicans does it take to change a lightbulb?”

It’s an old joke, with a number of different punchlines. But the truth in the humour is almost always the same: we don’t like change.

Challenges and Blessings


Most of us don’t like challenges. They don’t fit our usual comfortable routine so they cause disruptions in our lives. At the very least we have to rethink things we thought we understood, At worst we might see them as threats.

But we are really missing the point here. That is why they come.

Challenges are God-given opportunities for growth. When growth stops, so does life. We may not die physically but our minds, hearts, & souls become stuck in a past that no longer exists. Life continues whether we go with it or not. All living things face challenges but we have something most other species don’t. We have the power of choice! We can see a challenge as a nuisance or a threat, or we can recognize it as an opportunity to learn and grow.

COVID-19 is a real challenge and for some people it does mean death. But for most of us it makes us re-evaluate things. Yes I can’t go and do all the usual things, I’m lonely, or I need some space for myself, etc. On the other hand, what is really important to me? How can I use this time to make the most of the things I truly value? How do I want things to be as we move forward into the “new normal”, whatever that entails? Growth occurs and life continues. Or we just get angry with the situation and wait for things to go “back to normal”. The important thing to realize is that the choice is ours.

I have also learned that challenges often (perhaps always, if we really look), also come with blessings attached. For example, a couple of years ago I was having a problem with my dog. Friends recommended an excellent dog behaviourist (very different from a dog trainer). He came and started to help me make significant progress with the problem, but then he asked for my nursing help in relation to a family member who was dying. Over the course of time we traded our expertise as needed and became very good friends. I am truly grateful for the challenge that brought about this relationship. So the next time you face a challenge, try looking at it as a growth opportunity. As you progress through it, keep your mind open for the blessing that may be the gift at the heart of the challenge.
