Ha Na Park interviewed Bev Hindle about how our faith community has made an impact on her life and spirituality.
Bev believes the most important work that she has done at The United Church in Meadowood was to start the community garden small group. She leads the small group that takes care of the four gardens, supporting West Broadway Community Ministry and two St Vital community groups with lovingly-grown vegetables.
Why do you give your time and money to the church?
“My time and money? I’ve always felt that I have so much, compared to other people in the world. So I have to give my time and money. There is just no other choice that makes sense.
“I guess if the church wasn’t here,
I am not sure if I would be quite
the same person as I am now.”
“I hope that the 4 interviews will not only raise congregational awareness of the importance of stewardship (the giving of time, money and gifts), but will also inform Church members and adherents of the breadth of ministry and mission activities within the Church. Seemingly ordinary activities can make a big difference in the lives of both ourselves and others.”1Bev Hindle shared her reflections on how our faith community has made an impact on her life and spirituality. 2Stacey Milne-Ciecko talked about how our faith community has been a place for learning, spiritual growth and discipleship. 3Erica Young tells us that the thing she is most grateful for about being a part of The United Church in Meadowood is ‘relationships. 4Joy Bissoon, who has been with UCiM since its early beginnings, shares that she is extremely grateful to our ministers and the congregation for their prayers, care and concern which she has received during the past six months of facing a serious health concern.
