From the Governing Board of the Canadian Council of Churches, meeting at Crieff Hills, November 18, 2016
The Canadian Council of Churches—25 member denominations representing more than 85% of the Christians in Canada—decries the recent attacks of racist vandalism on synagogues, a church, and a Muslim Association in Ottawa, our nation’s capital.
We believe that all persons are made in the image of God. We will oppose such attacks in presence and in spirit. We will stand with those subjected to them in love and strength. We will pray and we will commit ourselves again to working for a country of peace and justice for all people, in God’s name.
