To Be Faithful Servants Walking God's Talk
This Weeks Readings: Exodus 17.3-7; Psalm 95; Romans 5.1-2, 5-8; John 4.5-42.
Water quenches and cleanses. "Come meet a man who knows everything I've ever done." Come meet the God-man, Jesus, who purifies us and calls us to his living water. The spring of water he plants within us holds the promise of eternal refreshment and eternal life. Let us hurry with the containers of our hearts to his well-spring!
Next Week's Readings: 1 Samuel 16.1b, 6-7, 10-13; Psalm 23; Ephesians 5.8-14; John 9.1-41.
On a given night, 6,000 people across Canada between 16 and 24 have nowhere to call home. This represents 20% of the total homeless population. In Toronto, estimates of homeless youth range from 900-2,000 nightly. The ShareLife-supported Rights of Passage program at Covenant House have been active in making a positive difference in the lives of homeless youth on the streets of Toronto. 75% of these youth have been matched with mentors and have also made progress in strenghtening their life skills and family relationships, getting them ready for life on their own. In addition, the ShareLife funded Youth in Transition programs help youth in foster care to transition to independent living.
