  1. Walking the Two Row Path: Making Our Way from Settler to Sojourner. A Deanery of London Sponsored Event.  November 7, January, 9 February 6. Online/In Person St Aidan's London.
    This relationship-building process will take place over the course of a few months, with the hopes of deconstructing settler patterns and creating the space and place for a sojourning relationship to blossom. Starting with an in-person session that looks at where we start our journey from, we intend to open the conversation with clear definitions of the colonial structures and systems we find ourselves in, as well as an evaluation of the colonial posture we assume. With this starting point, we aim to express the trail we look to blaze together, as we begin to unravel what walking the Two Row Path looks like for each of our churches and ourselves. Coming back together three more times over the next few months, we will learn to examine critically our patterns of colonialism and find new practices that can help us explore what diversity and inclusion look like. Through the use of Bible study, case studies, and a creation of radical space, we will build our “backpacks” for the journey of the Two Row, and discover the ways in which we can speak truth and practice reconciliation.

  7. Breath of God, Breath of Life - St. George's London. Monday evenings, beginning at 7:00pm, (October 16 - November 13)
    Have you ever thought deeply about breath? We are all creatures whose life begins with our first breath and ends with our last. Breathing, largely unconscious, fills our entire time on earth. Yet, do you often say to yourself, “Breathe! Just breathe!?” We are, it would seem, living in a breathless age.
    You are invited to a series of five evenings exploring what it means to be a living, breathing creature made in the image of God. The explorations will occur along two parallel tracks, theological and practical. They will delve into the activity of the Holy Spirit in our world and in our lives and they will offer us the chance to understand our own breathing through practical exercises and through an understanding of the basic science of breathing.
    For the practical portion, please wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing and bring a pillow and yoga mat, blanket or thick towel to lie on.

    The sessions will be facilitated by the Rev'd Canon Dr Timothy Connor, Parish Theologian, and Ms. Lori Holmes, Speech-Language Pathologist, Theatre Voice Coach and Brad Cliff Breathing Practitioner.

JOHN'S ANGLICAN CHURCH (EASTWOOD, ONTARIO) welcomes guest speaker The Reverend Canon Martha Tatarnic, author of "Why Gather - The Hope and Promise of the Church",  to our Book Club on October 18 at 6:30 pm.  All are welcome to attend and participate.
