St.worship Paul garden dedicated in Barriere

On Aug. 5, the Church of St. Paul (Barriere) dedicated the gardens facing the front of the church

Rev. Graham Brownmiller

Barriere Star/Journal On Sunday, Aug. 5, during their regular worship service, the Church of St. Paul (Barriere) dedicated the gardens gracing the front of the church in memory of The Anglican Church of the Redeemer. Reverend Brownmiller, presiding at the dedication, spoke about the history of the ministry of the Anglican Church of Canada in the North Thompson Valley and the history of the Church of the Redeemer, which was built in 1963. In 2008, the Church of the Redeemer and Barriere United Church began conversation about sharing in ministry in one space. They formally joined together (with members from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada) to create the Church of St. Paul, an Ecumenical Shared Ministry of the three denominations. Monies from the sale of the Church of Redeemer were used to construct the gardens at the Church of St. Paul. During the dedication Brownmiller said, “It is my job to remind people of the holiness of things. It is not my job to make them holy; God has already done that.” Brownmiller also noted that the gardens will be used as a memorial garden; already a bench in memory of John Strachan has been placed by the Strachan and Uppenborn families, and the bell which sits in front of the church is from the Clearwater United Church. Reverend Brownmiller will be leaving ministry in the North Thompson Valley at the end of August. Anyone who would like to celebrate with the members of The Church of St. Paul and Clearwater United Church are invited to attend worship in Barriere on Aug. 26, at 11 a.m., and/or come to a potluck luncheon party at the church following worship that day.
