Second Sunday After the Epiphany – January 17, 2021

Anglican Foundation of Canada Podcast about Generosity

St James’ own Felix Haley is one of 20 children and youth (ages 8 to 14) who will be participating in a podcast about The Anglican Foundation of Canada’s new children’s book, Generous People are Everywhere. “This book asks pointed questions such as: What is generosity? What does generosity look like? Are generous people happier?” says Judy Rois, Executive Director, Anglican Foundation of Canada. “We have come up with some answers, but we want to hear from young people, directly.”

To get the conversation started AFC is offering a free copy of the book to the first 20 children and youth, ages 8 to 14, who reach out to say they are willing to read the book and then make their voices heard. Recorded submissions are required by April 12, 2021 and will be included in Foundation Forward, a podcast inviting Canadians to talk about generosity.

“Wrestling with Resurrection” Series Begins at The Gathering – Sunday, January 17

Queen’s Canterbury Club is kicking off the winter term with a new four-part series on Sunday nights at 6 p.m. called “Wrestling with Resurrection.”
Each week guest speaker Dr. William (Bill) Morrow will delve into the topic of Jesus’ resurrection from a different angle. 
January      17              Did Jesus exist?

January      24              Was the tomb really empty?

January      31              Why are the resurrection accounts contradictory?

February       7              What did the disciples experience?January      17              Did Jesus exist?


This Sun. Jan. 17, Bill will address a foundational question to any consideration of the resurrection: “Did Jesus Exist?” drawing on Luke 3:1-22. 
Bill is professor emeritus in Hebrew Scriptures at Queen’s School of Religion and St. James’ biblical scholar in residence. 
This series of talks will take place as part of the Gathering via ZOOM, a short worship service with a guest speaker followed by discussion. The Gathering is designed for post-secondary students and young adults, however, all are welcome. 

Here is the ZOOM link for this Sunday (Jan. 17).
