Trans Day of Remembrance is an international day to memorialize lives lost to violent crimes in the Trans community. This day also sheds light on violence still experienced by the Trans community. This event is intended to be an event of healing and solutions. Reception and light refreshments at 6pm followed by a candle light vigil with guest speakers and musical performances to begin at 7pm. All are welcome!
We are looking forward to seeing you on November 5 at our worship service starting at 2:00 PM at 1728 Lincoln Road, Windsor. (Parking is at Lincoln and Seneca).
Scriptures for the day will be
Matthew 23:1-12 World English Bible (WEB) – Inclusive
Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to his disciples, saying, “The scribes and the Pharisees sat on Moses’ seat. All things therefore whatever they tell you to observe, observe and do, but don’t do their works; for they say, and don’t do. For they bind heavy burdens that are grievous to be borne, and lay them on other’s shoulders; but they themselves will not lift a finger to help them. But all their works they do to be seen by others. They make their phylacteries broad, enlarge the fringesof their garments, and love the place of honour at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, the salutations in the marketplaces, and to be called ‘Rabbi, Rabbi’ by others. But don’t you be called ‘Rabbi,’ for one is your teacher, the Christ, and all of you are sisters and brothers. Call no man on the earth your father, or no woman on the earth your mother, for one is your Father or Mother, but God who is in heaven. Neither be called
masters, for one is your master, the Christ. But those who are greatest among you will be your servants. Whoever exalts themselves will be humbled, and whoever humbles themselves will be exalted.”
