Invitation to EOORC Virtual Gathering – May 6, 2022

Dear E.O.O.R.C. Family,

 Life seems to be at a standstill, yet the days are zooming by. 

 Our last in-person gathering (Feb. 2020) seems to be a distant memory, but yet it feels like it was yesterday. On April 9, when I went back to Glen Cairn United Church in Kanata, the memories of Feb. 2020 flooded my heart and eyes, as these two-plus years have been difficult. 

 I am reminded of Ancient Israel, going round and round in the desert attempting to get to the Promised Land – they did because God always brings us through. Sometimes what we need seems so far away, but we all know that God’s Blessings are always on time. 

 COVID has not left us and echoes of war are no longer distant possibility, but the only things which keep us persistent and perseverant are the Promises of God. Prophet Isaiah (43:19) reminds us that God will make RIVERS gush out in the desert places of our lives and help us journey on – meeting our needs in every way. 

 You have already received the link to register for our virtual gathering for May 27-28, and I extend a sincere invitation to register if you have not yet. One thing we have realized is how our respectful relationships are essential for our journey. 

 Would you join us? 

 Come, let us journey on together with the assurance that the Creator, Redeemer, and the Sustainer leads us out of the desert and into the Promised Land. 

Rev. Takouhi Demirdjian-Petro
President, E.O.O.R.C.
