Deadline extended to October 26 for responses to Public Ministry in the ELCIC

When the timeline was originally established for our current FOD project, it was anticipated that FOD would meet this October to consider responses to Public Ministry in the ELCIC - A Preliminary Draft. This yielded a September due date for responses. Owing to scheduling difficulties, FOD will not meet until early November.

FOD has therefore moved the due date for responses to Friday, October 26.

CPJ lauds the launch of a federal poverty strategy

After years of advocacy from anti-poverty organizations across Canada, the federal government has launched the long-awaited national poverty reduction strategy – Creating Opportunity for All: Canada’s First Poverty Reduction Strategy.

Citizens for Public Justice (CPJ), a national faith-based policy organization, has advocated for a National Anti-Poverty Plan for over a decade.

“This is a good announcement for those living in poverty,” says Joe Gunn, executive director of CPJ. “However, this strategy falls short of what anti-poverty and faith-based groups wanted.”

Camp Sunday at St. John's, Arnprior

We had a great, relaxed time with the kids, big kids . . and puppets!! on Camp Sunday. Camp music and actions, with familiar songs like He’s Got the Whole World, I’ve Got the Joy, Joy, Joy, and Rise and Shine were enjoyed. At ‘sermon’ time, the big kids got together in groups to talk about Nicodemus and new life. A highlight of the service was puppet time. Maureen and Lorne Rueckwald were puppeteers, presenting a nervous camper Sophie and a sleepy, but reassuring, camp counsellor Cameron from lectern and pulpit.
