U Matters

We are entering Christian Unity Week. To celebrate, we welcome Pastor John Snelgrove, founding pastor of The Vine, to preach at 8:30AM9:30AM and 11:00AM Sunday.

Then, next Wednesday at 7:30PM, we host the English Unity Service, with The Rev. Peter Koon, a Chaplain at St. John's Cathedral and the Provincial General Secretary of the Hong Kong Anglican Church. The variety and diversity of Christians never ceases to amaze me. Nor does the unity we find in Christ.

Let's celebrate our connections with Christ and his church. Jesus prayed in John 17:20 "that all of them might be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you..." Let's be an answer to that prayer this week.
