Isaiah 42:1-9
The Spirit-Empowered Servant of the Lord

The Ultimate Servant of the Lord

The world, our nation and our province face many challenges even this past week. On the provincial front, the week began with the cancellation of a major project north of the oil sands. People looked forward to the creation of 7000 jobs with the project. That will no longer happen. On top of that, the provincial government released its budget and thousands gathered at the legislature on Thursday to protest it. Many of you feel or are starting to feel the budget impact. On the national front, we saw the escalation in the railway blockades. The Ontario Provincial Police moved in to take down the blockade in Belleville last Monday. More protests and blockades have flared up in response. On the world front, Coronavirus continues to spread into Southeast Asia, Europe, into BC and Ontario and maybe eventually here.
