“Face Covering Law ”

Hymn: VU 275 From God's Hands


 

Scripture:

Duet 22; 5 11 Timothy: 9-10 1 Peter: 3 2-5

Reflection:

Our minsters, I am a member of one church but attend another, hence the plural for minister. In any event they both do a good job with sermons but stick pretty much to pure biblical topics. I like to look at today's events and try to find scripture and hymns to match. Often not an easy job nor even a good match. I would like to take on Trudeau or Kathleen Wynne but this is not the forum for that kind of language, so let us look at Quebec's new face covering law. One has to tread really lightly when stomping on another's religion. I have read most of the Quaran, have some Muslim friends and the word is that face covering, like a lot of ritual in all religions, is a man-made dictate. Check Quaran 7"26 and draw your own conclusions. In Canada I am under the impression that only bank robbers cover their faces so I wonder what the fuss is about. My biased opinion is that no one goes out in public with their face covered unless they are walking at the corner of Portage and Main in February or some other really Canadian corner. So, we know our government some years ago gave away the final say on these matters so no doubt the Supreme Court in their wisdom will allow anyone to do or say what they please in Canada.
 

Discussion:

Discuss a time when you felt that you or your beliefs were not being respected by others.  

Hymn:

VU 286 If you will trust in God....

Prayer:

Lord, we don't want too or mean to offend others who may believe in you in different ways, and share different customs. However, I guess it is difficult for some of us to accept or understand, so please Lord, open our hearts and minds that we may full understand and accept those who chose to worship in different ways. Amen
