The explorations we are most afraid of....

Black History Month is about the history of all of us.

That was brought home to me loud and clear when I read Paul Douglas Walfall’s blog about the role of United Church ministers in supporting the Ku Klux Klan in the prairies in the 1920s.

Read more in this month’s Notes from Nora.

A United Church survey on being intercultural

Can you spare a few minutes for an important new survey from the United Church?

We want to know how the church is doing at becoming intercultural. We are hoping for input from all the varied voices that make up our church. Reflect on your experience of church, good and bad, and offer suggestions for the future. The survey is open to anyone who is a part of a United Church congregation or community of faith.

Kairos Canada's urgent action request

Kairos Canada is calling for letters, telephone calls and emails of support for Bill C-262, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act. The Act is currently stuck in Senate.

“If passed into law, this Bill will provide a more equitable framework for justice and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people by ensuring that Canada’s laws are in alignment with the UN Declaration.”

You’ll find more information here!

A youth forum!

The next Youth Forum has been scheduled for April 12 to 14 in Magog.

For more info, talk to Shanna Bernier. Or check us out on Facebook!

A new structure for the United Church

The new organizational structure of The United Church of Canada became official on January 1.

Find out more about the new changes, including names of the regional councils, on the United Church website, here.

But here are some basics: "Conseil régional Nakonha:ka Regional Council" is the new region 13 of The United Church of Canada. It comprises most of the province of Quebec. Nakonha:ka is a Mohawk word meaning “Eastern Gate”.

In our new structure, communities of faith (congregations and other mission units) belong to Regions which replace Presbyteries and Conferences.

Additionally, The Manual of The United Church of Canada, 2019 edition, is now available online. It went into effect January 1, 2019. Take a look and download your copy, via this link

On attending a showing of SLĀV

Our minister Samuel, along with Florence, Malekesa, Ésaïe, Armel and Hubert, contributed to the French-language United Church online magazine Aujourd’hui Credo, on the musical production SLĀV, which was performed here in Sherbrooke last month.

The thoughtful package can be found directly at this link.

New Regional Council newsletter, Nouvelles Nakonha:ka News.

There’s a new local United Church weekly to be published every Friday! It will include important area information, news and events of interest.

You’ll find a copy posted on the bulletin board in the Plymouth-Trinity Hall (under a new blue banner, for easy visibility).

And you can request an esubscription by sending email to Judy Coffin, at JCoffin at united-church.ca .

You’ll also find our region on Facebook at Conseil regional Nakonha:ka Regional Council (formerly 13) at this link on Facebook and on Twitter @Nakonhaka_uccan .
