West Hill Podcast

Listen to meditations, prayers, readings & music that reflect life in a progressive Christian community of faith. These podcasts are made possible by the generous support of our listeners.

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT OUR PODCASTS:  After 25 years of service, our wireless sound system needs to be replaced. To ensure that we can provide a quality recording to share with others, this system -- like the previous one -- must be of professional quality. Systems of this quality can range from $500-$600.  Can you help us out with a donation?  If you value hearing Gretta's and others' wonderful perspectives, clearly and without distortion, this would be a great way to show your financial support! You can send your donations to West Hill United Church with a notation "for a speaker system".  Or click on the Canada Helps button to the right and note "for speaker system".

Gretta reflects on the 23rd Psalm, the Psalm of Love, re-imagined and adapted.  It is offered as wisdom for the journey.

With love as my guide, I shall not want.
It makes of my days a green pasture;
it leads me to ponder still waters;
it restores my soul.

Love offers me paths that bloom with its truths.
Even though I walk through the darkest valleys,
I fear no ill;
for love is with me;
its presence and strength -- they comfort me.
Love lays a table before me
that I might invite and serve my enemies;
it calms the anxiety of my mind
       with the sweet oil of the heart;
my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall flow from me
       all the days of my life,
if I but build each one
with the words of love
my whole life long.
