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

 REV. LIM RELEASED FROM PRISON, RETURNS HOME on Tuesday August 15, 2017.

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).
