A need for pos­i­tiv­ity

The Compass - - Editorial -

Dur­ing the past few weeks, my wife and I at­tended ec­u­meni­cal Len­ten ser­vices at the dif­fer­ent churches in Har­bour Grace.

The ser­vices, which were well at­tended, con­sisted of prayers, hymns and a homily. The em­pha­sis by all the clergy was on unity and the fact that we are all one, cre­ated by God, re­gard­less of what re­li­gion we pro­fess to be.

On the fi­nal night at St. Paul’s, Rev. Don, on be­half of all the clergy, ex­pressed his grat­i­tude for those in at­ten­dance and hoped more of these gath­er­ings will take place.

Amid all the neg­a­tive things hap­pen­ing in the world, this is some­thing pos­i­tive which can only lead to more pos­i­tive things in the fu­ture.
