Lent is a season that encourages us to be deliberate in cultivating and nurturing within us what we need to renew life and vitality. This year, in response to the United Church of Canada's commitment to becoming an anti-racist denomination, our North Toronto Cluster of churches decided to focus our soul work in this special season on the issues of race, power, and inequality. Our unique theme at Rosedale United is "Courageous Conversation." Each worship service will include time with a special guest as well as thought-provoking reflection that helps us grow and renew ourselves as human beings and as followers of Christ. Each service will support you in spiritual practices for peace, centering, and strength, while engaging heart and mind on this important spiritual issue.
