Enjoy the Winter newsletter of the West Broadway Community Ministry.
“Voices on Broadway is created by a small yet creative team of people
working out of West Broadway Community Ministry at Crossways in Common.
Our goal is to give VOICE to the people of this neighbourhood.
We will celebrate this community and
bring you the good news of what is happening here.
We will also use this space to speak out
against injustice and bring up issues of concern.
We welcome your contributions, opinions and ideas.”
The next dinner gathering of the Men’s Group will be held on Thursday, Dec. 12th.
Meet & Greet commences at 5:30 with supper following at 6pm.
This month our featured meal will be Ham & Scalloped potatoes.
Come out and enjoy great food & fellowship.
There is a sign up sheet on the bulletin board in the Narthex to indicate your attendance.
Alternatively, you can contact Don Thorpe at 204-254-1053 or firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm.
The United Church of Canada is Responding
United Church staff will endeavour to be in touch with Filipino partners and closely monitor the situation as damage reports are released. At this time, however, anticipating the typhoon damage to be extensive, we are welcoming donations from United Church members across Canada for “Typhoon Haiyan Relief.” We are also calling for prayers. As early as possible next week we will update information on the situation in the Philippines on the General Council Office website.
What You Can Do
- Pray for the millions of Filipinos facing the loss of their loved ones, homes, and livelihoods.
- Pray for the members of the Philippines ACT Forum who are working tirelessly to assess damage on the ground and organize an emergency response.
- Pray for United Church partners in the Philippines, the National Council of Churches in the Philippines and United Church of Christ in the Philippines, as they also work diligently to attend to the needs of Filipinos affected by the disaster.
- Pray for the Government of the Philippines which is working with civil society organizations to address this latest catastrophe in their country.
