PCC MISSION MOMENTS Hope in the inner city

Edmonton Urban Native Ministry is one of eight Native Ministries in Canada supported by gifts to Presbyterians Sharing. The ministry serves people of Aboriginal background in Edmonton’s inner city. It seeks to meet the social and spiritual needs of people struggling with complex issues of addiction, exploitation, violence, homelessness and poverty. Providing practical support, creating awareness and promoting healing initiatives are priorities. EUNM collaborates with various churches to provide children’s ministry programs, VBS and summer camp opportunities. The history of the relationship between Aboriginal People and The Presbyterian Church in Canada has been complex and often difficult. The PCC is committed to walking with Aboriginal Peoples on a journey toward healing and reconciliation.

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Learning from partners in Taiwan

Nearly half of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan’s membership is Indigenous. With support from Presbyterians Sharing, Carragh Erhardt (Healing & Reconciliation Program Assistant), the Rev. Dianne Ollerenshaw (Director of Regional Ministries, Synod of Alberta & the Northwest) and Lori Ransom (Healing & Reconciliation Animator, 2006-2011) represented the PCC at the PCT’s International Forum on the “Mission of the Church in Taiwan Today.” Afterwards they spent six days with PCC mission staff, the Rev. Dr. Paul McLean, and some of his Indigenous colleagues for mutual learning about experiences of reconciliation in Canada and Taiwan. Carragh shares, “I am grateful to the people we met in Taiwan for sharing their experiences and I look forward to continuing this partnership.” Presbyterians Sharing supports exchanges with international partners

 COMMUNITY NEWS:

After more than two years, Mississauga pastor Rev. Hyeon Soo Lim was released from a prison in North Korea last week and has returned home to Canada. Last Sunday, he addressed the congregation at Light Korean Presbyterian Church, the church he pastored.  Rev. Lim’s release is a wonderful answer to prayer. The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada  wrote several letters on Rev. Lim’s behalf. (most recently on July 11).

PCC MISSION MOMENTS Administering change

Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing help administer the Avondbloem Fund, established by George and Evelyn van Beek in 1981. This legacy gift supports practical, creative PCC projects that spread the message of Christ. The Raw Carrot Soup Enterprise, a ministry of Paris Presbyterian Church, received a grant to help grow its innovative work. Staff members—who are on social assistance or living with barriers to traditional employment—prepare healthy, homemade soups and stews that are sold in the Paris community and beyond. Proceeds from the sales provide their salaries. Currently, eight people are employed—and two more Raw Carrots will be opening in the next year! This initiative builds self-confidence, provides job training and job creation—a living example of Christ’s message of love and hope.

Presbyterians Sharing supports dreams as they are turned into reality

PCC MISSION MOMENTS August 19 is World Humanitarian Day

After the massive earthquake shook her Nepali village in April 2015, Dolma’s dream of pursuing higher education felt out of reach. Her school was demolished, and even when lessons resumed, her frightened family refused to let her go. “Our house had collapsed. My family needed me,” shares Dolma. Presbyterian World Service & Development partners in Nepal focused on repairing the shattered inner peace of survivors through community-based activities as a form of psychosocial support. “There were cultural events, folk dances and drama performances,” shares Dolma. “That was very effective in making life in the village normal again.” Dolma, now back at school, is certain the psychosocial activities are what helped her parents find comfort and the strength to let her return.
