Fellow Gatherers of the Canadian National Gathering, the planning team would like to hear how God is speaking to you as we approach the 2019 Gathering this May.
This triennial gathering provides a space for the Christian Reformed Church in Canada to congregate to discern, envision, and look strategically at where the Ministry in Canada is being called. The 2019 Gathering will build on the work started at the 2016 Gathering held in Waterloo, Ontario.
This year, the Canadian National Gathering will be held in Edmonton, Alberta from May 24-26. The theme is ‘Emptiness to Fullness’. Delegates from every classis have been selected and are now receiving preparation materials. Delegates are encouraged to read, watch, and discuss the materials received each month.
As part of this preparation, we would also like to invite delegates to use this post as a ‘bulletin board’ to discuss Gathering 2019, in addition to connecting with your delegate partner.
This ‘bulletin board’ is a space for you to share your input, thoughts, and reflections on what you have been viewing or reading, interesting things you may have been reading about churches and their mission, thoughts about the Gathering, and a place where you can ask questions and make comments and observations.
The planning team would also love to hear from you as we continue to shape Gathering 2019 to allow us all to hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches, and especially the CRC.
Please post and check back often as we prepare for this important event.
