GOOD NEWS FROM THE KESWICK-RAVENSHOE MINISTERIAL SELECTION TEAM
The Keswick-Ravenshoe Community of Faith held a formal meeting on Sunday, February 4th, 2018.
Approximately 62 people were in attendance to receive and act upon the recommendations of the interview team. After the presentation by Rick McKinley, Presbytery representative, and Marilyn Butcher, chairperson for the Selection Team, members agreed by vote to the following:
To extend a call to Rev. Calin Lau effective July 1, 2018 as per the terms that were outlined in the report; to request that Toronto Conference approve this call and that the interview team be disbanded following the covenanting service with our sincere thanks.
Please pray for Rev. Calin Lau and for all of us as a community of faith that we open our hearts and minds to each other’s ministry as we begin this new pastoral relationship.
Please check out their website for more information on the Living Presence Ministry.

The new date for the Fresh Start workshop is Saturday, March 3rd.
Living Waters Presbytery is committed to strengthening congregations for their ministries in a time of great change. Our denomination is in transition and congregations need to build capacity for healthy pastoral relationships despite the uncertainties ahead.To this end, United Fresh Start was created to assist congregations in transitional times. Through a series of learning modules, congregations and ministers can develop the skills and awareness to make a fresh start!
You are invited to experience the four core modules, and to learn about additional modules that get at some of the challenges in developing new (or re-developing existing) pastoral relationships.
This day is for chairs of governing bodies, chairs of M&P Committees and ministers – or those who you know would benefit from this and who can communicate effectively at home after doing it!
