Inviting Grace

The Rev. Meggin King, President of Maritime Conference,
The United Church of Canada 2013-2014

As this year’s President of Maritime Conference, I look forward to building relationships with many people, across our Conference and Synod, and throughout our communities. It is in community- and relationship-building that we invite each other into moments of grace. My hope for this blog is to share some of these moments with you: in wonder for the unexpected nature of grace, and in gratitude for the opportunities that I’ve been given to encounter grace in so many ways.

Time Out

Time Out

I'm back after four weeks of vacation,  and in all honesty I will say that it was more stressful than you'd  normally expect, for vacation time.  Don't get me wrong- there was good stuff going on, including family time, time away, time camping-   but there was stress...

Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

Earlier this month I spent a week in Truro, at the annual Atlantic Seminar in Theological Education (ASTE) event. For those unfamiliar with it, this is a wonderful week, held each year for the last 45 years, with a different theme each year. Every years since I've...
