This guide  is meant to be a companion for families as they celebrate Creation Time with their faith community. It is a list of discussion questions and activities to help worshippers of all-ages engage from their homes. The theme for each week follows a part of creation (water, earth, plants, animals) and ends with "gratitude" on Thanksgiving Sunday. The themes can be paired with the Year A Hebrew Bible lectionary readings, which focus on living-off-the-land and God's provision. In addition,...

Dear Communities of faith in the Nakonha:Ka Regional Council: With the provincial reopening plan in full swing, and churches across Quebec making plans to have face-to-face worship again, our YaYA leadership team wanted to highlight a few recommendations for churches to consider with regard to children, youth and families.

I do believe in education, and I believe that anti-racist education, which moves beyond...

Help us be brave in facing our own prejudices. Help our eyes to see what is happening. Be with the people on the front lines, and keep them safe from violence and danger Creator God, seek us and challenge us to do better, to love bigger and to be the people you call us to be. Help us to stand up for each other no matter what. Lend...

It is with very mixed feelings that the United Spirit Camp committee has decided that we will not be holding any face-to-face programming at the Camp D’action Biblique site this summer.

Please stay tuned for exciting updates very soon about how we will be gathering virtually. We are planning an exciting week of fun online activities in real time from June 29 to July...
