Water Communion / Communion de l’eau – in person at the church
August 29 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Our first in-person service since March 15, 2020 is sure to be a special one. To mark this occasion we will be holding our annual water communion service. Please see the Covid-19 guidelines at the bottom of this post to learn about the precautions we are taking to protect our community.
Everyone is invited to bring a little water and pour it into a large communal bowl and tell where it is from, or what it means to them, or whatever. Water will be available for those who fail or forget to bring some of their own. The Water Communion is a ritual that allows us to share the meaning of significant happenings that we have experienced.
Tout le monde est invité à apporter un peu d’eau et à la verser dans un grand bol commun et à dire d’où elle vient, ou ce que cela signifie pour eux, ou peu importe. L’eau sera disponible pour ceux qui échouent ou oublient d’apporter une partie de leur part. La communion de l’eau est un rituel qui nous permet de partager le sens d’événements significatifs que nous avons vécus.
