Prepare your favourite dish, and join the conversation!
It promises to be a diverse group of folks sharing wide-ranging perspectives and experiences. Truly a thought-provoking gathering of ideas.
Let’s set the table…
On February 28th, we will be hosting our next Love aLIVE, an online dinner church series where people from all walks of life gather around our virtual table and share how love is alive in their lives. You’re invited to share your experiences too!
So, exactly what do we mean by that?
Well, for many, how love is alive in their lives is about nurturing relationships at a time of physical distancing, when many of us can feel isolated. For others, it’s about reconnecting with loved ones who they now get to spend more time with. Perhaps helping others is a way you choose to keep love alive. Keeping love alive is a deeply personal experience and sharing those experiences with others is truly an act of generosity.
A shared meal is the perfect setting for conversations that feed us: body and soul.
ESG United Church in partnership with Skylight Festival invites you, your friends, and family to join us and special guest, singer and actor, Jeremy Carver-James. Jeremy is a performer known for his versatility of genres and who has sung with our ESG choir on several occasions. Born in Calgary, Alberta, this year Jeremy was scheduled to perform the US touring production of a new libretto for Scott Joplin’s opera Treemonisha and perform as The Mayor in Rock of Ages, and The Wizard in the Wizard of Oz Pantomime. Some of Jeremy’s theatre and opera credits include Annie, Hairspray, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Pygmalion, Cabaret, Porgy and Bess (Opera de Montreal) and Treemonisha (Nathaniel Dett Chorale).
Everyone is welcome, kids included. We’ll have a break-out room for them to share in their own guided activities. If parents and kids want to engage in the evening, then it would be good to grab a second device so that kids can be on one and parents on the other. Read instructions for our craft here.
Note about dinner:
We understand that not everyone eats at 5 pm EST. It is ok if you’re still preparing your meal while we gather or you want to eat later. The evening is intended to be casual while you feast, prepare or just be with us in this time of community and connection.
