It is my pleasure to invite members of the EOORC to the 2020 Annual Meeting being held May 1 – 2 at the Nav Centre in Cornwall, Ontario. The theme of our meeting will be, To Live With Respect In Creation. This is a theme inspired by our times and is reflected in different ways by many Regional Councils across our country. Former Moderator Stan McKay has agreed to be our preacher, theme speaker, and theological reflector. Stan is Cree from Fisher River in Northern Manitoba. He was Moderator of the United Church from 1992 to 1994. He called us to add the words “to live with respect in creation” while presiding over General Council in 1994. I invite you to come and share in Stan’s gifts of teaching and wisdom. The main topic for our policy discussion is around our mission statement. Starting with the document that our commission formed, we will come together to find our way to a mission statement that will guide us all. In addition, there will be great music, many interesting presentations and displays, in an attractive and welcoming environment. Hope to see you there!
