MISSION CAPSULES: Through Justice Ministries, the PCC works with congregations to sow seeds of hope and respond to the justice imperatives of the gospel. At the centre of this work is engagement with Presbyterians across Canada. Staff visit and speak to congregations, presbyteries, synods, youth groups and camps. They provide workshops, respond to the TRC’s calls to Action, facilitate the Blanket Exercise in many different places and speak of reconciliation. Justice Ministries has recently produced resources on the Doctrine of Discovery, how to “green” your congregation, Earth Day, and materials to engage the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls final report.

Definition of a Friend - someone who says nice things about you when you aren’t around.

Perhaps they are not stars in the sky but rather opening where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy!

Have a good week - MB
