The awe that Jacqueline feels as she looks up into the space that is the sanctuary of St. Andrew’s Kingston is exactly the awe that I believe God wants for every one of us to feel about our lives.
This Sunday morning we will hear Jesus tell a parable that is all too familiar … literally. We hear him speak about the seed (the gospel) being sown in different sorts of soils (Mark 4:1-9). How easy it is to be overwhelmed by a fear that we are inadequate recipients, unable to nurture the gift of faith. But what if Jesus’ point is not the first three soils but the fourth … when God plants faith in the lives of Christians, God grows the gospel to harvest in those lives, with abundance?
What assurance! Even more awesome than a great and beautiful sanctuary to a child!!
If you are in the area, we warmly invite you to join the worship of God. REMEMBER THE TIME CHANGE – AN EXTRA HOUR! Certified child care is offered during the service and there is free parking on the streets around (please note that the time-of-day restrictions on Clergy Street north of Queen are not in effect on Sundays) and in the surface civic lot just behind the church off Queen Street. This morning we will also be celebrating the Lord’s Supper, to which are welcome ‘all who love the Lord a little, and yearn to love him more’.
Have a look at the Order of Service and bulletin below, and consider each hymn and prayer and announcement a personal invitation to join us in Christian worship, community and service. If you have any questions about forthcoming events and opportunities, please call the church office Tuesday – Thursday, 9 a.m. – noon, 613-546-6316, or email
Join us next Sunday for a Service of Worship that will include a special time of Remembrance.
