Dear Friends in Christ
The horrors of war are engulfing the people of Ukraine, as we see on our news screens daily. As a community of faith devoted to Love of God/Love of Neighbour, we at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church have Ukrainians foremost in our minds, our hearts and in our prayers. Practical support to help with everything from trauma to food, clothing, and shelter can be given by us individually through monetary donations to Canadian Lutheran World Relief, (CLWR). We can simply add our amount of support to our regular offerings to Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. (Mark the details on the front of your envelope with "CLWR/Ukraine".)
Thanking you in advance for considering giving a helping hand to our Ukrainian neighbours, especially to the women, children, and seniors in dire need as they flee the war zones of their beloved homeland. Brita Park, ORLC chairperson

Triptyc

Triptych by Lynne Marand

This set of paintings now hangs in the Fellowship Hall.

The person in the image moves through the process of reflection, repentance, and rejoicing against the backdrop of Okanagan Lake and Naramata bench, a familiar scene to all who live here.
This is meant to be each of us, here where we live, moving through this process.
And so, whenever we gather in the hall, this triptych will be a reminder of the daily process we are called to go through: reflecting on our lives and the areas in our lives that leave room for improvement; repenting, which means returning to God and laying our failings at God’s feet; and finding true and lasting joy in the grace-filled embrace of God.
The water in the image connects this process to the Sacrament of Baptism, as Luther did in his treatment of Baptism in the Small Catechism where he wrote:

What does baptizing with water signify?
Answer: That the old Adam in us…should be drowned by daily sorrow and repentance…and the new person should come forth daily and rise up, cleansed and righteous, to live forever in God’s presence.
