PCC MISSION MOMENTS : World Day of Social Justice (Feb. 20)
Ayishetu Abu had not seen her family in eight years. She was living at the Gambaga Outcast Home in Ghana—a shelter for women facing accusations of witchcraft. In many Ghanaian communities, there is a tendency to suspect witchcraft as the cause of crop failure, the death of a child or any other unexplained event. In addition to improving living conditions at the shelter, Presbyterian World Service & Development works to foster social acceptance among these communities and educate village leaders about human rights, mental illness, disabilities and other health issues often mistakenly attributed to witchcraft. To ensure more women like Ayishetu can embrace opportunities that are the right of every person, PWS&D will continue working for justice and peace.

AN INVITATION TO LUNCH The Metro Vancouver Alliance, of which our Presbytery is a member, is a broad-based group that is convinced that we can do much more together than we could ever do alone. The majority of its members are faith groups. You are invited to a luncheon where we can explore the values that motivate us to act together. Besides food, on the menu will be stories of the positive impact that broad based faith organizing has had on Canadian society and what has happened when the churches have worked together in the past. And now, in this city, in this year, what is it that we can do together that will make a real difference for the common good? Come with an appetite to relate with one another, and leave with ideas and resources that will help us make a difference together. Tuesday, February 19, 11:30-1:30 at St Mary’s Roman Catholic Parish 5251 Joyce Street in Vancouver. It’s a short walk from Joyce Station.
