Pastoral thoughts from Rev. Bill

As a United Church minister and a person of faith it was gratifying to see a number of my United Church colleagues and scores of United Church member’s among the 200 + visitors who joined the members of the Kingston Islamic Centre on Friday February 3rd for events that were held in memory of the victims of St Foy.

It was also wonderful to see our church and its people to be among those who offered a wave of hope and tolerance in the face of the tempest of Islamophobic pontification from the American halls of power which has created an atmosphere of intolerance and fear.

It will take a concerted effort at the art of welcome and a an enduring practice of community building to construct the consensus that is necessary for our society to become a hospitable place for ‘the alien and stranger’ in our midst.

Let us as people of faith challenge ourselves to be bridge builders, offering a path of hope and generosity as we together go forward to build communities where everyone is welcome just as they are.

In Peace and Hope
Rev Bill McAuslan
