GENERAL SYNOD COMMUNICATIONS

The Anglican Church of Canada and Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) will hold a national worship conference in Edmonton, July 20-23, 2014.

The theme “Weaving Strands: Liturgy for Living” illustrates the cooperative nature of the conference, which promises to weave together Anglican with Lutheran, liturgy with music, and worship with everyday life.

The 2014 conference will bring together presenters and participants from across North America to explore diverse styles of worship. Featuring internationally acclaimed musician Dr. David Cherwien and widely-respected liturgy scholar Dr. Ruth Meyers, it is a unique opportunity for musicians and liturgists to share and network ideas and resources. The conference welcomes participation by clergy and laity who seek to build up the life of the Christian community through worship.

“We’re presenting some of the best, most exciting work happening in our church,” says the Ven. Dr. Chris Pappas, Anglican co-chair. “The strand that’s weaving us together is a passion for Christ.”

Register before June 15 for the early bird rate. Also available are special rates for students and congregational groups registering multiple members at one time.

For more information or to register online, please visit www.nationalworshipconference.org.

Registration now open for Justice Camp 2014

By Erin Green, Anglican Church of Canada

Justice Camp: Land meets in Edmonton from August 15 to 21, 2014, and brings together adults from across the country for up close encounters with social justice issues.

Participants will choose from seven immersion experiences on topics ranging from the relationship between faith and the oil/tar sands, urban responses to systemic poverty, and interreligious perspectives on land and human life. These are complemented by time for biblical reflection, worship, and relationship building. All of which will foster leadership for social justice skills in participants.

Justice Camp began as a grassroots movement within the Anglican Church of Canada. Over the course of a decade, the camp has moved throughout the country and focused on themes including food justice, poverty, and advocacy.

The focus on land is drawn from two sources of wisdom. Judeo-Christian scriptures show a strong connection between land, spirituality, and community. Similarly, wisdom about the deep connection between land and life is found in the spiritual traditions of Aboriginal cultures. Justice Camp seeks to listen to these sacred teachings anew and reflect on what they have to say about life in community in balance with the land and one another.

To find out more about Justice Camp, including information on immersion options, receiving university credit, a detailed schedule, and how to register, please visit www.justicecamp.ca.  Early bird registration ends June 15.
