Some 60 Presbyters, 19 youth and 11 youth leaders gathered from Feb. 26-28 at Broadway UC in Thunder Bay for our Presbytery’s winter meeting. The meeting’s themes were the eight Category 2 and 3 Remits (proposals for changes to the Basis of the Union of the United Church of Canada) that will have to be voted on. We would also be sharing some “good news stories” about positive initiatives that are taking place in various congregations.
On Sunday morning Presbytery members joined in (eclectic) worship together with the Broadway congregation, who had done just a marvellous job at hosting us. The service was also livestreamed live with multiple cameras to anyone who wanted to participate from different times and/or places. After closing motions, this Presbytery meeting was formally adjourned.
Here is a link to the Remits from the 42nd General Council. These will be discussed (not voted on) during a theme time at the Presbytery meeting. Please have a look at them online and perhaps list any questions you might have.
Rev. Shannon McCarthy, Conference Executive Secretary, will be leading the theme presentation.
