Many Hands, One Heart, Sacred Love for All
Sunday February 28th, 2021 at 10:30 am 
Second Sunday in Lent
 
Come to the Manor, the table is ready, “Blessed to Be A Blessing”  

We are the blessing.
We meet blessings every day of our lives, in the hidden corners and the centre of the road.
I remember my uncle Joe Mastandrea in Newmarket Hospital, on his death bed from cancer. Would you like to a prayer? He said yes, I will pray for you.
God met Abraham and Sarah in the centre of their road to proclaim, walk before me.
We are invited to walk with God in relationship, as people and the nations of the world, to redeem, to reconcile. We are invited to plant the promise of divine freedom and to receive and offer divine blessings.
Abraham and Sarah stood, come here and go away with grace. A window to divine love and faith opened to faithfulness and restitution to declare in the barren valley the fertile crossroad.
I will bless you to be a blessing. To be the covenant and commandment, in Israel and the world.
I will bind you in history to restore humanity, with your ancestors and descendants to bring justice.
The particular justice to deal with humanity by the mighty hand and outstretched arm, to acknowledge the blameless gift, to be the numerous peace of deliverance and hope.
Paul proclaims the promise of Abraham is the hope that rests on grace.
The traditions, the gift for the children of Abraham is the promise of God for all the nations.
Jesus, the child of Abraham and Sarah, began to teach. In the question and answer the hinge marking life today and the urgency to heal the diseased, disabled, and the troubled people.
He fed, walked, stood up to criticism, reached out. “Who do you say that I am?”
For those who lose their life will save it.
Peter’s rebuke is human thought, power and might, of the crown of the person. Deny self, take up the cross, confront the Romans, be a disciple speak messiah. God with us now, the kingdom of heaven planted in our heart today.

Rosary Society, 3:00 pm
RSVP Cole Sadler  cole@wesleysadler.com or Dr. JJ ministermruc@gmail.com

The United Church Rosary Society is an ecumenical organization under its Chaplain, Rev. Dr. John Joseph Mastandrea, composed of Protestants, Catholics, even Muslim and Pagan members, united in their devotions through the Holy Rosary.
 
The United Church has a spectrum of practice and belief, from Calvinism to Humanism, and the Rosary represents an important historical practice in the life of the Western Church, out of which the Protestant Reformation arose. Those with an interest in liturgy and sacrament, or ritual in general, may find edification in the regular recitation of the Rosary, especially in a communal context.

The UCC Rosary Society meets Wednesdays and Sundays: those desiring to attend please contact John Joseph for information.
