Many Hands, One Heart, Sacred Love for All
Sunday May 9, 2021 at 10:30 am 
Sixth Sunday after Easter
 
Come to the Manor, the table is ready, “Water, Water Everywhere”   

We are the water, the water of Harrington Harbour, the Saskatchewan River, the Jordan Valley,
The tale of Cudmore Creek.
They heard the word, the spirit fell, interrupted, preached, and mediated.  They heard the word proclaimed, circle of day dawning, lifting voices.
They heard the word, the water for baptizing, Peter’s vision, smorgasbord, beyond law, custom, vision, voice, God made clean.
They heard, we love the children of God.
They heard interweaving of faith, love, boundaries broken, holism, love world indent in Christ.
They love bound to believe, confront the thorns, love each other.
They heard, this is my commandment.
All you need is love. Can’t we just get along. Love is a gift from God, shut and open.
Lay down one’s life for friends.
Servant’s of everything made known, dignity, commitment, affection.
The story, community, our present lives. I choose life, joy, friendship.
We are chosen, the water people.

The pandemic requires us to clean in between tenants and groups who use MRUC. Duties would include airing the rooms, mopping, and disinfecting high touch surfaces. The rate of pay is $20/hour for one time events and $15/hour for weekly cleaning. Shifts would be a minimum of 2 hours and cleaning would likely be needed in the evenings or on weekends. Please email manorroaduc@gmail.com if you are interested.
