The work of Christmas begins


God with us. That’s the miracle of Christmas – but now that the gifts have been opened, what do we do?

We walk and work alongside God.

That we are not alone is incredibly encouraging. We begin our work by acknowledging we are working with God and relying on God’s grace and sustaining power.

As we begin with that thought, we have faith that the little things we do will have big impact.

We take little steps as we seek to build a more just Barrie and a more caring community – Barrie, Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada and world.

Consider how you can help heal a broken planet, help build bridges of trust and seek justice and peace for others.

  • A few ideas to get you started:
  • welcome the refugee
  • feed the hungry
  • share our gifts – and not just financial ones


Let’s carry the Light into our neighbourhoods and Barrie.

All the best for 2022 for you, yours and ours.
