God keeps the promise made to David to give him an everlasting throne. The angel tells Mary that God will give David’s throne to her son Jesus. She is perplexed by Gabriel’s greeting and by the news of her coming pregnancy, but she is able still to say, “Count me in.” We who know that Jesus is called king only as he is executed still find it a mystery hard to fathom, but with Mary today we hear the news of what God is up to and say, “Count us in.” (The link to the live-stream is below.)

With grateful thanks to all who have made it possible for us to worship “together while apart”!

We are indeed grateful to our newly minted “live-stream experts” as they have diligently worked many hours over the last several weeks to iron out the wrinkles in the process. New provincial guidelines to combat the Covid-19 virus have brought about the very difficult decision to suspend in-person worship at one of the busiest and happiest times of our church year. We sincerely appreciate that we are able to have a virtual link to our church through this live-streaming connection. Thank you to the Tech Team!
