Many Hands, One Heart, Sacred Love for All
Sunday January 17th, 2020 at 10:30 am 
 
Come to the Manor, the table is ready, “Speak, Your Servant is Listening”   

We are the listening moment, in the sheer silence.
Monday to Friday, there is the listening moment in the early morning run. There is the sound of silence.
The word of the lord, in the epiphany, the child Samuel, filled with wisdom. The word of the lord is the divine call, the human response, sacred service.
Speak, for your servant is listening. Call of God, delayed recognition. The God voice, spiritual intimacy, divine urgency. God knows our name. We are summoned for vocation, take action.
Speak, for your servant is listening. Become one Spirit with God, in respect, dignity, integrity now.
Jesus speak, follow me. Call of disciples, flesh, blood, paradox, identity, invitation for thirsty, hungry to join messiah.
Jesus speak, heaven opens. Jesus people, good news, speak Jesus. Jesus life, Jesus community, Jesus speak, Jesus lives in story. Christology is relationship, Jesus speak is braided journey.
Jesus walks, Jesus speaks, Jesus hears, Jesus listens, we listens,
Jesus speaks, we speak now.
Follow me, open hear, mend the world.

Friday Speakers Series
Fridays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Featuring - James FitzGerald, “Old Boys, the Powerful Legacy of Upper Canada College”

 

Meet James FitzGerald

Educated at Upper Canada College and Queen's University, James FitzGerald spent over 40 years in the fields of journalism and book publishing. His first book, Old Boys: the Powerful Legacy of Upper Canada College, was a controversial inside look at the attitudes and values of English Canada's ruling class families rendered in an oral history format. Revelations of the sexual abuse boys at the school, first published in his book in 1994, sparked the criminal conviction of three former teachers and a successful multi-million dollar class action suit against UCC. His second book, What Disturbs Our Blood: A Son's Quest to Redeem the Past, was a multi-layered exploration of madness and high achievement within his prominent Toronto medical family. In 2010, the book won the Writers' Trust Non-Fiction Prize and was shortlisted for three other major literary awards. The last in a thematic trilogy of creative non-fiction, Dreaming Sally is a true story of first love, sudden death and synchronicity set in the summer of 1968.
