Global Partners at General Council 43

Global Partners at General Council 43

The Reverend Dr. Lynne McNaughton, rector of St. Clement's, Lynn Valley and Deputy Prolocutor of General Synod, the Anglican Church of Canada (ACoC) is using her study week, the week of July 22 to represent the ACoC as an ecumenical partner at the 43rd General Council of the United Church of Canada in Oshawa, Ontario.

McNaughton reports that she is learning a great deal about United Church engagement around issues of shared concern with Anglicans, such as: dismantling racism, implementing the recommendations of the TRC, self-determination of Indigenous people in the Church, and finding wasy to be inclusive of and celebrating the diversity in congregations (ethnicity, intercultural, differing abilities, youth, gender identities, etc.).
