Pancake Supper
Tuesday, February 28, 2017
5:00 - 7:00 PM
Pancakes, sausages, beverages, dessert
Cost: $8


Trivia alert: Pancake (or Shrove) Tuesday marks the last day before the beginning of Lent (the 40 day season leading up to Good Friday and Easter). Centuries ago, ingredients such as sugar and eggs were restricted during Lent (tradionally, a time of fasting and serious reflection), so Shrove Tuesday was the last chance to make merry and use up these ingredients before Easter. That's where the tradition of Mardi Gras (in French, "fat Tuesday") festivals began.

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

About the season: Epiphany
When: Epiphany itself occurs on Jan 6 (on the 12th day after Christmas - hence the Christmas song of the same name!). The season lasts either for a week or until Ash Wednesday (March 1 in 2017), the beginning of Lent.
Meaning: "to reveal" - a shining forth of the light of Christ. Often a period for emphasizing the mission of the church.
Colours: White
Event: Traditionally, Epiphany celebrates the arrival of the magi ("wise men"), the first to "reveal" Jesus to the wider world
