February 22, “Movie Madness”
About 30 people from MWUC gathered at the Cineplex in South Edmonton Common on the evening of February 22. Some people saw “Call of the Wild,” others “1917,” and still others “Parasite.” Afterward, we reconvened at Rob and Jennifer McPhee’s house for snacks and conversation. Thanks to Rob and Jennifer for another successful and enjoyable Saturday evening.
January 26, joint worship with ZUMC
We joined with our Zimbabwean friends for worship and a simple lunch catered by The Congregational Care Team. Ian reflected on God’s call based on a reading of Matthew 4:12-23 in which Jesus calls his first followers (“Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?“). The choir sang “There Is No One Like Jesus,” In addition, Amber Petch gifted the congregation with a beautiful drawing of the church building. It now hangs outside of the Lounge on the main floor
Mill Woods Resource Fair, January 18
For the fifth year in a row, Mill Woods United was represented at an annual Mill Woods Resource Fair. Karl Kropf, Darlene Hayward, and Ian Kellogg staffed a table at which we talked to people about our outreach projects and our inclusive and expansive spiritual community.
The Fair is organized by Edmonton-Mill Woods MLA Christina Gray. As in past years, it was held on a Saturday morning and afternoon on the second floor of the Mill Woods Library Building on Hewes Way. About fifty tables were present representing local organizations involved with health, education, immigration services, and other social services.
