 Shall We Gather at the (Digital) River 
 A Virtual Town Hall Meeting
for Ministry Personnel and Regional Representatives
Thursday, May 21    3 pm MT 
Plus New Password for Chinook Winds Directory

 
Friends,

We hope you can join us for our Town Hall this Thursday at 3 pm.

Pam Rocker, Affirming Connections, will be joining us at the beginning our time together. Pam led a very successful Affirming Leaders Day earlier this month.

If you haven't already done so, you're encouraged to sign this
letter of support  for Calgary's City Council voting in favour of its proposed by-law prohibiting conversion therapy. You can sign this letter even if you don't live in Calgary. It will be delivered to Calgary's City Council tomorrow (Thursday) morning and the vote is to take place on May 25.

Since our last gathering, the presentation that Executive Minister Treena Duncan gave on re-opening guidelines for communities of faith has been incorporated into a PDF document that was distributed in a separate email today. However, you'll find it on the Chinook Winds website HERE.
