Our service this morning will include silence and reflection to celebrate the life, grieve the loss, and honour the ministry of the Rev. Vivian Seegers.
We will also hear a pastoral letter from Bishop John Stephens regarding the recent discovery of children's remains on the grounds of the Kamloops Residential School.
By request, in memory of Vivian, we will be singing #408, Wind Upon the Waters. The lyrics are below; the bulletin for the service is here.
Wind upon the waters,
voice upon the deep;
rouse your sons and daughters,
wake us from our sleep.
Breathing life into all flesh,
breathing love into all hearts,
Living wind upon the waters of my soul.
Blazing light of wonder,
flame that pierces night;
Burst the dark asunder,
fill our souls with light.
Lord of glory, fill the skies,
make an end to hatred's cries,
Be the blazing Sun of justice in our lives.
