MISSION CAPSULE: Presbyterians Sharing … supports Winnipeg Inner City Missions to bring light and hope to one of the toughest neighbourhoods in all of Canada. Its Learning and Play program helps young children gain important pre-kindergarten knowledge. Caregivers learn how to engage with their children in a safe place. Many did not experience loving and engaged playing in their own childhood. The program seeks to help caregivers learn how to use play to genuinely show their love for their children. Karen, a mother, foster mother and grandmother shares. “I wish I’d had this program when my son was born. Thank God I was given the opportunity to do it over again.”

NOTICE: We are happy to say that people don’t want to wait for Advent to continue with Theology on Tap. Would people who do participate, or who want to participate, please let either Erin Sclisizzi or M.J.Perry know if they would prefer to start again on June 5th or September 11th.

The plan is to continue to meet at the Beacher Café on Monday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30. Although Castro’s was very, very gracious in welcoming us and we wish to express our gratitude to the owners, their party atmosphere made conversation difficult.

The book we are using for the next session is Buffalo Shout, Salmon Cry: Conversations on Creation, Land, Justice and Life Together. It is produced by Mennonite Central Committee in the U.S. Crux book store has offered us a discount again. Due to the dollar exchange it is currently $29.69 and the hope is that we would be able to acquire it for the American listed price. We have also selected as a companion piece, Tom King’s The Inconvenient Indian, available at the Toronto Public Library.
