Whether taught from the pulpit, modelled through the lives of members, or painted by some of our artists, Justice is part of who we are because it is who God is. If God was in Christ reconciling ALL things to himself then as children of God we are called to participate in this work of reconciliation.
On Canada Day, a group of women gathered to act for the sake of the lost children of residential schools whose graves are slowly being found. This is a short film expressing their motivation for such an act.
We are an inclusive church within a denomination still wrestling with their biblical understanding of sexuality. In 2016, Synod called together a group tasked with articulating a "foundation-laying biblical theology of human sexuality that pays particular attention to biblical conceptions of gender and sexuality." In 2020, this "Human Sexuality" report was presented. A group of women, mothers and grandmothers, from Meadowvale wrote an overture in response. It was affirmed by both our council and by Classis Toronto.
