Interim report from 14 August 2015
The team has met three times and we are seeing rapid progress in the development of materials. It might be helpful to congregational leaders to have clarification about a couple of matters.
One, we understand that there is variation in the diocese on the matter of observing Harvest Thanksgiving and Canadian Thanksgiving. The worship resources will be adaptable so that you can maintain your parish tradition, while still maintaining a unity in the rest of the diocese in the readings and sermon resources.
Secondly, in an effort to go deeply and comprehensively into the subject of gratitude, there will be six Bible studies. This means that you should plan to start the Bible studies during the week of 27th September. The series will come to a conclusion the week of All Saints’ (1st November).
Finally, we are hoping to have the materials ready to distribute by the middle of September. It is not too soon to begin organising Bible study groups, leaders and venues. Watch this space for further developments!
