At this time of high anxiety in church and society, this presentation will focus on the blatant and subtle effects of anxiety. Steady, thoughtful, and calm leadership is critical yet difficult to engage in such an atmosphere. What do our own symptoms tell us? In the effort to address the anxieties swirling around us, how might we not miss the opportunities for self-reflection and self-regulation?
MNO Synod leadership feels that our current situation gives us an opportunity to introduce a way of connecting people while growing deeper in faith and discipleship, and we are reaching out to you to partner with us in exploring small group ministry.

Earlier this week, National Bishop Susan Johnson, along with the Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada and the Moderator of the United Church of Canada, issued a letter to the churches regarding “the ongoing sin of racism in our communities.” We are including this document along with this letter so that as many people as possible may see it.
