  • A New Hymn from Richard Reimer and Kathy Sparo
    I wish to offer this hymn to you, Wind from God, for any time in the church year, but especially in the season after Pentecost, as it appeals to the wind, breath, Spirit of God, translations of the same word in the languages of the Bible. Though the text was completed last fall, the verses seem all the more relevant now, in this time of “viral fear”.

    I’m most grateful for the four part harmony arranged by Kathy Sparo. Our hope is that the hymn will be sung widely. We therefore grant permission freely for its use in congregational, campus ministry, camp or other settings. We only ask that you acknowledge permission granted by “Richard Reimer, text and tune, and Kathy Sparo, arrangement.”

  • O Lord our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

    When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,

      the moon and the stars you have set in their courses, (Psalm 8:1,3)

    The Care for Creation Ministry Team invites the Synod of Alberta and the Northwest Territories to give expression to the wonder of creation this summer.   How do you experience the awe and wonder of God’s creation? Draw upon the resources of your faith and give expression to this question in your favourite medium. Be creative! Use your skills to lift up the wonder of God’s creation.  Our goal is to build a library of submissions for use in the synod and to share some of them in the form of a video for congregational use.

    Email submissions or concepts to pastortimwray@gmail.com
