“Let us sing of greater things”  An Exploration of Messiah
Join us this fall for lively learning and conversation about Handel’s masterpieceSome said it was too sacred to perform in a theatre! Others, that it was too theatrical to perform in a church! Perhaps neither were correct. Handel’s great composition will not be confined to the sacred or the secular, nor will it be barred from either space. Maybe that’s why Messiah continues to stir so many souls. Its subject is the Messiah, Jesus (though his name is never mentioned nor his words quoted in the text). Messiah explores the profound and world reshaping meaning of Jesus, using only words from sacred Scripture. It does so with music that enlivens us, pouring out emotions of sorrow and delight.

Thursday evenings (every 2nd week)
7:00pm to 8:30pm
6 sessions: Sep 28; Oct 12, Oct 26, Nov 9, Nov 23, Dec 7
Elora United Church’s Bissell Room

Women’s Spiritual Potluck

No, you don’t have to cook something before you come! The Spiritual Potluck nourishes your soul. Participants might bring a book, poem, clipping, song, bible verse or other inspiring item. The meeting might begin with some catching up and then a few songs. Those who have been inspired will present their potluck item and a lively discussion will follow. Participants are certainly encouraged to bring something along but you may also come and simply be nourished.
