Ed's Newsletter | December Issue
Christmas greetings friends,
I’ve recently been reading through the Gospel of John. I’ve found it to be rich and life-giving. One nugget grabbed my attention. In the middle of a clandestine conversation with Nicodemus Jesus says:
“I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.” 3:3
“I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen…”3:11
Our national body (CCMBC) is going through a process of re-visioning and restructuring. To assist in the discernment process, everyone is being invited to fill out the enclosed Survey. If you have not yet participated, could I ask you to quickly fill it out. It will only take 15 minutes, but will be of great help to the discernment team.
Young adults (and those young at heart) are invited to participate in Embrace – Jan. 19-21 (This will be a full emersion into urban mission).
This event is for anyone who wants to embrace God, neighbour, stranger.
Finally, keep the upcoming ONMB Convention dates in mind: February 23,24 2018. The convention theme is: “Empowered for One Mission”. More details and registration coming later this month.
