IN THE COMING WEEKS 

1.  East Coast Generous Space Retreat - July 6-8, 2018, St. Stephen's University, NB.  Generous Space Ministries works within the church and cultivates vibrant faith community for LGBTQ+ people from many different backgrounds and traditions.  We are serving people coast to coast with 28 Generous Space groups running across Canada. Please do read more about us on our website: www.generousspace.ca  Generous Space Retreats offer a warm sense of belonging where we are deeply committed to love each other across difference.  While we particularly welcome LGBTQ+ people to participate, we gladly open this opportunity to learn to pastors and leaders, family members, and allies of the LGBTQ+ community.  We expect that those who gather will be from different theological traditions, with perhaps quite different perspectives on sexual ethics - and we view this as an opportunity to grow in understanding each other and learning to love across difference.  The retreat isn't a time to convince or change people's minds, rather it is an opportunity to encounter God in one another across difference as we worship, reflect, and learn together.  All the details regarding registration can be found here:  https://www.generousspace.ca/ecgsr-2018/


A History of Canadian Mission in Taiwan

History matters! Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing support Louise Gamble as she works with our partner church, the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan, to transcribe and translate reports and correspondence of the Canadian North Formosa Mission. These documents are records of the development of the Christian Church in North Formosa, from the point of view of its missionaries. It includes over 7,000 documents from 1868 to 1923. Louise works in partnership with her talented and dedicated Taiwanese colleague, Mr. James Chen. They are working on the third and final series (1915-1923), which documents events during WWI as well as issues such as Canadian church union and the growing theological tensions in North America. When finished, this series will likely be over 1500 pages!
