Highlights from the Cross-Canada Conversation

In honour of the 75th Anniversary of The Canadian Council of Churches, last month we invited individuals and groups across the country to join in a livestream conversation about the place of Christianity in Canada today. Speakers included: Pastor JoAnne Lam (ELCIC), Pastor Mary Fontaine (PCC), Pastor Ken Shigematsu (Christian and Missionary Alliance Church in Canada), Bishop Noël Simard (CCCB), and Dr. Marie Wilson, Former Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

Despite the numerous technological details involved, the event went smoothly and generated meaningful conversation between Christians across geographic and denominational borders. We’re grateful.
