The Anglican Parish of Christ Church will host a Virtual Neighbourhood event on Wednesday, May 19, 7 pm, on Zoom Meeting ID: 880 5857 2386 Passcode: 964259
Throughout the season of Easter, The Anglican Parish of Christ Church explored themes of justice, sabbath, love, neighbourliness, diversity and faith using the example of the life and faith of Fred Rogers.
Through weekly Sunday worship and mid-week lessons on the parish YouTube channel, as well as a podcast learning series offered on the parish website, the Christ Church community explored Mister Rogers’ and Jesus’ message of love and being a neighbour to everyone.
“Being a good neighbour is not only something for the church to recognise as an institution,” says Christ Church rector the Rev. Susan Oliver. “It’s part of our individual callings as Christians, We are called to love our neighbours as ourselves, and, as Jesus did, to love and accept people “just the way they are.”
"In a world that has become increasingly polarized and divided it seems fitting to reach out in love to our neighbour," she says. "Our worship and learning series was sparked by Mister Rogers' simple message of love and being a neighbour to everyone."
Whether you are her literal neighbour, or a virtual neighbour from another parish or city, Rev. Sue invites your participation in the "Won't You Be My Neighbour" Virtual Neighbourhood event.
