Message from TSP Board

July 27, 2021
 
Dear TSP community, neighbours, and friends,  I hope this note finds you well, and having a restful and rejuvenating summer.  With Ontario well into Step Three of its reopening plan and September just around the corner, I wanted to provide an update on our plans for Sunday services at TSP.  During August, and on September 5th, we will continue to worship on Zoom. As we have done for decades, we will welcome our friends from Bloor Street to worship with us for August. September 12th will be a Welcome Back Sunday like no other. I'm excited to say that we intend to resume in-person services that Sunday! What should I expect when I come to worship?  When you arrive, you will be asked to provide your contact information for contact tracing purposes. Seating in the sanctuary will not be pre-assigned.  Rather, you will find clusters of seats marked as available. One, two, three, and four seats will be clustered together. Please find a cluster of seats that matches the size of your household/bubble. If you are able, please try to sit in the balcony to allow more room on the main floor for those with mobility issues. Please also remember that clusters have been spaced apart to maintain social distancing. Your mask must be worn at all times during the service. Although our wonderful soloists will provide musical leadership, there will be no congregational singing for the foreseeable future. If you wish, soft humming under your mask will be permitted. After the service, please exit the building. Coffee Hour will remain online, at 2pm Sunday afternoons. What if I am unable to come to worship or don't feel ready?  I'm thrilled to say that a long-standing goal of ours is being achieved.We are in the process of purchasing the equipment necessary to be able to live-stream our services online. I anticipate live-streaming will begin in the early fall.  I'm truly looking forward to seeing you on September 12th.  Please don't hesitate to email me at chair@trinitystpauls.ca if you have any questions.  Blessings,  Colin Phillips  Chair of the Church Board

On the Ground in Palestine – October 25, 2018

Some news from the Holy Land, courtesy of the Middle East Working Group.

“The United States says it is placing its main diplomatic mission to the Palestinians under the authority of its embassy to Israel… For years, the consulate has served as a de facto embassy to the Palestinians, reporting straight to the State Department in Washington. Placing it under the authority of the embassy could be seen as suggesting American recognition of Israeli control over east Jerusalem and the West Bank.”: The National, out of the UAE (also reported by many other outlets)

According to Sabeel, Jerusalem, Oct. 25: The ‘Great March of Return’ continues along the Gaza border. Among the thousands legitimately protesting, 130 persons were injured including journalist Fady Thabet. Israel has announced that it plans to start a ‘zero tolerance’ approach, using live fire on protesters further away from the fence.

Israel has suspended the demolition of the village of Khan al-Ahmar for “several weeks.” This comes amid increasing violence from Israeli occupying forces who used tear gas, pepper gas and stun grenades on locals and internationals last week.

The Kumi Now initiative launches this week. This initiative of over sixty organizations encourages everyone to rise up together for justice through short, simple, nonviolent actions.
