Weird Church pancake supper coming to Cumberland United Church

Trees survive wintry blasts, facing everything winter throws at them. They are resilient because a winger-hardy tree prepares for winter long before the ice arrives by increasing the sugar contents in its cells.

In the same spirit of preparedness for the winter ahead, Weird Church is hosting a Friday Feast Pancake Supper & Potluck on Nov. 29, 6:30-8 p.m., at Cumberland United Church.

Everyone is invited to feast and to reminisce about the last winter season of our lives while preparing spiritually for the one ahead. There will be readings and reflections on preparing for the winter season, as well as music and a chance to meet new neighbours.

Admission is by donation, although advance registration is requested by visiting www.weirdchurchcumberland.com/events.

Founded in 2018, Weird church is a “group of people in the Comox Valley who believe that all people are created in the image of God and bound in love and have intrinsic value.” Many who participate in this spirituality-based group seek spirituality outside of the traditional brick-and-mortar church or organized religion. Many participants are moved by the life, love, and teachings of Jesus, but non-believers are welcome as well.

Reverend Brown emphasizes that there are no barriers to full participation in Weird Church (including sexual orientation, gender identity, race, marital status, religious affiliation, political beliefs, socio-ecomonic status etc.)

“We’re here to bump into the sacred with you,” said Brown. “God is everywhere, but sometimes we need a reminder. And so, we gather in community. There is no ‘us and them,’ only ever the here and the now.”
