All Our Relations
Rev. Debra Thorne and
This Sunday is a little bit different. The Sunday services team encourages all Beaconites to join with Unitarians from all the Lower Mainland churches and ‘Walk for Reconciliation’. The City of Vancouver, as part of its Canada+150 celebrations, has organized a walk for reconciliation on Sept. 24th. As part of the Unitarian commitment to reconciliation, all Beaconites are encouraged to participate in this march. Rev. Emily Hartlief of the Northshore Unitarians, and Rev. Samaya Oakley from South Fraser, will lead the Unitarian participation and Janet Pivnick will focalize the Beacon contingent. (See Upcoming Events at left for more information.)
There will be a service at Sapperton led by Rev. Debra Thorne for those who cannot make the walk. A live stream connection from the walk will be part of the Sunday service.
Following the march there is a Reconciliation Expo from 10:30 till 3 pm at Strathcona Park. More info at http://reconciliationcanada.ca/walk-for-reconciliation-2017/
Walk for Reconciliation begins at 9:30 am, the service at Sapperton begins at 10:30 am.
