November 29 is ‘#Giving Tuesday’ and I have been challenged by the Moderator, the Right Reverend Jordan Cantwell to give a gift using the United Church’s ‘Gifts with Vision’ catalogue.  There are many wonderful choices, both House of Lazarus and Rideau Hill Camp within our Synode Montreal & Ottawa Conference, and others supporting ministry across Canada or with global partners around the world.

Many of you have been watching or participating as Toronto Conference conducted a review of the Rev. Gretta Vosper.  The decisions of the Conference’s sub-Executive were released today and can be found as the first story on the home page at www.torontoconference.ca.

This is clearly a time when many people will have a variety of emotions as they read the message from the sub-Executive.  Please feel free to share the information and the accompanying documents to anyone who would like to see them.

"...if our sisters can stand up for what is right while facing threats and actual assassinations, we surely cannot sit idly by and allow this business to carry on, protected by ruthless international actors operating with complete impunity."

By Tantoo Cardinal & Sarah Harmer in Opinion | March 29th 2016

 

Rev. Ryk Allen has been advocating for Aboriginal rights throughout his career.

Those who are interested in the daily events of the Synode M&O Conference AGM will find a brief daily newsletter attached for each day, as it becomes available.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ

After 6 years of work, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) will be ending on June 3, 2015.  By way of marking its closing, four full days of events have been planned.  This letter is to highlight some of those events and to encourage you and your congregation to participate in the events, either by attending them in Ottawa if possible or, by developing your own events and celebrating in your own area.  This needs to be a Canada-wide celebration.

Frères et sœurs en Christ,

Après six années de travail, la Commission de vérité et réconciliation (CVR) terminera son mandat le 3 juin 2015. Pour l’occasion, plusieurs évènements sont organisés pendant quatre jours. Cette lettre a pour but de vous en informer et de vous inviter, vous et votre paroisse, à prendre part à ces activités, soit en y participant à Ottawa même si cela est possible, sinon en organisant vous-même un évènement pour souligner cette démarche dans votre milieu. La CVR mérite bien, en effet, une célébration partout au pays.
