Lent/Easter 2019 – Seeking Right Relations

Posted in Steinbach United

In the Christian tradition Lent is a time of reflection and lament, a time to seek reconciliation and the mending of relationships. This year, during the Lenten season at Steinbach United Church, we are invited to acknowledge the truth about the harm done to the First Peoples of this land by European immigration, Christian assumptions and actions and continuing stereo-types and racism, which has resulted in damage that affects us all.  We will have opportunities to learn, to lament and to seek healing as we work toward reconciliation and wholeness for all who live in this land.

This will not be an easy journey, but it is an important one that we have been called to by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) which issued “94 Calls to Action” in 2015.  Some of these calls were made specifically to the church.

Welcoming new Minister at the Steinbach United Church

Posted in Steinbach United

We have good news! Please welcome Rev Paul DuVal!

 

Paul is an ordained clergy person who has recently retired from Alberta and moved to Winnipeg. He has 35 years of experience, with 22 of those being in congregational ministry in united churches in Alberta. The other 13 years he was on staff at the conference office offering support to clergy and congregations. Paul will be with us for the next five and a half months in a short term appointment for 10 hours per week. We call this “Gap Ministry”. He will be with us as we continue to explore shared ministry possibilities or look for a long term person. There is always the possibility of extending the time with him.

 

Paul is very much a people person and looks forward to getting to know all of you. He will be leading worship about once per month, attending to urgent pastoral needs, as well as doing some visiting. His major role will be to enable us to continue to live out our statement of commitment and our ministry in this community, focusing on building community, reaching out and growing spiritually. We look forward to working with him!

SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKE SUPPER

Posted in Steinbach United

Free will offering. Net proceeds will go to the Mission & Service Fund.

 

What is Pancake Day?

 

Pancake Day (also known as Shrove Tuesday) is the last day before

the period which Christians call Lent. It is traditional on this day to

eat pancakes.

 

Why are pancakes eaten on Shrove Tuesday?

 

Lent has been historically a time of fasting, of giving things up.

Shrove Tuesday was the last chance to indulge yourself, and to use

the foods that were not allowed during Lent. Pancakes were

eaten on this day because they use rich ingredients such as

eggs, butter, and sugar.

 

When is Shrove Tuesday?

 

Shrove Tuesday is celebrated the day before Ash Wednesday and is

the final day before the commencement of Lent, a Christian

festival leading up to Easter Sunday. Shrove Tuesday always falls 40

days (Sundays are not included) before Easter Sunday, so the date

varies from year to year.
