Back Again

Posted: August 11, 2012 in Uncategorized

The last couple weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. Getting settled into my new office and job.

Currently I am at General Council 41 which is being held in Ottawa.

The General Council is the highest court of the United Church of Canada. It is a 7 day meeting where we discuss, debate, and make decisions on some of the issues facing our church.

For more information see: http://www.gc41.ca

The United Church of Canada’s General Council is a denomination-wide gathering which meets every three years to elect a new Moderator and to approve new church policies.

In addition to 358 delegates called commissioners, approximately 250 guests, observers, youth, children, staff, and volunteers will be present for the week-long gathering. Commissioners are selected by the church’s 13 regional Conferences and represent an equal number of lay people and ministry personnel.

The 41st General Council of The United Church of Canada will take place at Carleton University, in Ottawa, Ontario from August 11 to 18, 2012.”

 

As you can imagine I am very excited to be here and to represent my church and Maritime Conference. It is an honour. I can only hope that I live up to the expectations.

You can expect a few updates this week on GC41. I will try to keep you posted.
