YOU ARE INVITED!
Join your colleagues/friends/neighbours in the three Atlantic Regions in the rescheduled on-line book study through 4 weeks in early 2022 (January 12, 19 26 and February 2). We’ll read together Canadian Senator (Retired) Hugh Segal’s recent book: Bootstraps Need Boots; One Tory’s Lonely Fight To End Poverty in Canada (UBC Press, Vancouver, 2019.
The four Zoom sessions are to be held on Wednesdays, January 12, 19, 26 and February 2 at 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Atlantic Time; 7:30 to 9 NL time. Each session will be 1 ½ hours duration. Meetings will be hosted by Marion Pardy (NL), Karen & Hal Llewlellyn (NS), Audrey Lounder and Rose-Hannah Gaskin (NB).
We ask those who register to make a commitment to read through the book and to participate as fully as possible in the sessions. The plan is to go through 5 chapters each evening of January 12, 19 and 26. We have Senator Hugh Segal himself confirmed for the February 2 discussion and final session.
The registration form can be found here. Registration deadline is January 4, 2022.
There is no charge for the course. We invite participants, however, to consider making a free-will offering to the Mission and Service Fund of The United Church of Canada.

ATTENTION YOUTH 15-19!!!
General Council 44 is coming up, and with that, comes the opportunity for youth between the ages of 15-19 to participate in Youth Forum! Along with that, Home Group Leaders are needed! Each region will get to have 4 participants (the other 1 from each region is your commissioner…please speak to me if you have questions about who that person is from your region) to the event that takes place throughout the year, starting in the winter of 2022. As you’ll see, it is also an opportunity for employment! Share both of these links far and wide.
