MISSION CAPSULE: When 35 cm of rain fell over five days in Malawi in March, the presence of PCC mission staff was invaluable. Vivian and Blair Bertrand gave us first-hand accounts of the devastation experienced by over 900,000 Malawians. They recounted the harsh realities faced especially by subsistence farmers who lost their entire crops. They grieved together with their friends and colleagues when roofs collapsed, walls caved in, latrines were washed away and family members died. Amid the darkness, Vivian, working with Churches Action in Relief and Development (CARD), has been very busy writing proposals for CARD’s relief efforts. Proposals include providing emergency items such as food, plastic sheets, cooking pots, water buckets and chlorine to treat water and agricultural support to help people reclaim their livelihoods after the loss of crops and livestock. Presbyterians Sharing … supports the Bertrands whose presence opens a window into this widespread tragedy.

MONDAY, JULY 15th, 2019 - Theology on Tap – Beacher Café – 7:00 - Our evening with John Vissers was wonderful and we are very grateful to him for joining us. We went beyond our time without realizing it but fortunately, everyone was enjoying the discussion so much that no one minded. Because we spoke about Calvin in general we did not deal with any specific issues in Chapter nine. If you have anything pressing to discuss about this chapter we will include it with Chapter ten this coming Monday. We are beginning to consider our next book……we are suggesting “To Set the Captives Free: Liberation Theology in Canada” by Oscar Cole-Arnal. We can get a discount with an order of ten books. If you are interested let either Erin or M.J. know.
