As part of our summer worship service exchanges, this week we join the congregation of Glebe-St. James United Church for their online service. Click here to watch the service.
This church is located in downtown Ottawa, the heart of our nation's capital. In many ways, Glebe-St. James is quite similar to Comox United Church. Here's a quote from the Ottawa church's website:
Glebe-St. James is an Affirming Congregation in the United Church of Canada. Everyone AND their gender, race, ethnicity, abilities or sexual orientation is welcomed AND celebrated.
We're committed to acknowledging the Algonquin Peoples on whose traditional unceded lands we now gather: we acknowledge their story and their stewardship of the land and water, the plants and animals, through many generations.
These things are key to us: being a welcoming community (everyone is welcome - yes, EVERYONE), living out a faith committed to social justice, and worshiping in a thought-provoking and music-rich way.
