Rev. Elisabeth will lead a series of studies, suitable for youth, adults, seekers, long-timers, newcomers and new members, beginning in February. In 1925, the United Church of Canada was formed as a union of three distinct denominational traditions, and was joined a generation later by a fourth denominational group. This means our faith heritage is â€˜diverseâ€™ to say the least! At various points, we have created â€˜statements of faithâ€™, from the â€œArticles of Faithâ€, the well-loved â€œNew Creedâ€ and most recently the â€œSong of Faith.â€ All congregations have been asked to study these faith statements in preparation for the national â€œGeneral Councilâ€ (Aug 2012). This is our chance to provide direct input to the deliberations of the national Church. More information to follow. See also Rev.Elisabethâ€™s post on BeyondWoodandStone.
