As hot summer days roll on in, with popsicles and picnics and all the delights this time of year offers, we present to you one more wonderful thing: the summer edition of the DC Canada Newsletter!
Our theme this season is coming together. You will see this in the heartfelt article by Ellie VanAlten where she describes an encounter with a stranger that touched both their lives. (Willing to Ask for Help)
And you will also enjoy the theme of coming together in our article profiling a very special couple, Rynie and Len Bakelaar of Classis Huron, which focuses on the regional advocacy teamwork they have shared for two and half decades. (Regional Advocates of Classis Huron)
With our August virtual training event fast approaching on August 11-12, we also invite you to come together with us in the important endeavour of ending ableism in our churches. You can register and find out more information on the Let's End #AbleismAtChurch website. We look forward to seeing you there! (Join Us for Ableism Training)
