ELCIC and Anglican Church Canada
The lay and clergy delegates convened in Calgary for joint and plenary sessions at the University of Calgary June 28th - July 2nd. While the national meetings are primarily business oriented there was much time to connect/reconnect with others and the worship opportunities included wonderful music and opportunity to celebrate. As our Moravian friends remind us: "Unity in the essentials, liberty in the non-essentials and always in love!"
