Woodcliff United Church, 5010 Spruce Drive SW, is honoured to welcome Imam Syed Soharwardy to our worship service on Sunday, February 5th, at 10:00 am. Mr Soharwardy is a Sufi scholar, Chairman of the Al-Madinah Calgary Islamic Assembly and is the founder and current President of the Islamic Supreme Council in Canada. In January of 1998, he founded the group Muslims Against Terrorism. Our country has been reeling in shock and horror at the recent terrorist attack against an innocent group of Muslim men, kneeling at prayer in their mosque. This gathering provides us with an opportunity to express, to the Muslim community at large, that we, as Christians, stand in solidarity with them against hate and bigotry. Any who might wish to join us for this sacred and holy time are more than welcome to do so.
NEW WEBSITE COMING SOON!
Join us for worship with programming for children and youth Sundays at 10am!
Everyone is welcome at the table of God, and everyone is welcome to worship at Woodcliff. It is a joy to
welcome you into our sanctuary and into our hearts. May you be uplifted and renewed in faith.
Sunday Service February 12, 2017
THEME: The Heartbeat of Life
Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching, a day of chocolate and flowers, and a celebration of love, but did you know that the traditions that have arisen around Valentine's Day are based on legends that surround a widely-recognized 3rd Century Roman saint named San Valentino. One of those legends tells us that Valentine refuse to sacrifice to pagan gods. Being imprisoned for this, Valentine have testimony in prison and through his prayers, he healed his jailer's daughter who was suffering from blindness. On the day of his execution, he left her with a note that was signed, "Your Valentine."
In the scripture passage that we are focusing on today, Moses reminds his people that God has given them free will, the ability to choose life and love or spiritual death and despair. This is the very essence of life. It is the heartbeat of life. Blessings, Linda
