Greetings, everyone. It is certainly time to gather as an Edmonton & District Council of Churches. As you know, our September meeting did not transpire. As an executive, we have needed time to re-evaluate the mission and vision of the EDCC. In early November we spent a morning in retreat with a capable facilitator, who engaged us in a very worthwhile process of re-visioning who we are, what our needs are, and how we can move forward more effectively. Our EDCC meetings should look different in the future, and we hope you will want to attend as many as possible. The re-visioning process for the executive is not complete; we will continue with the second part in January.
In the meantime, Advent is fast approaching, and we are excited to gather with you for an event we are calling: PREPARING FOR CHRISTMAS: AN EDCC ADVENT SOCIAL AND INFORMATIONAL GATHERING.  It will take place at City Hall from noon - 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 11. We have reserved a meeting space at City Hall, where a new and highly innovative nativity scene has been created with the help of NAIT students. Our meeting agenda is just about finalized and will be shared with you shortly. In any case, it will include the following:
  • Welcome, Introductions & Opening Prayer
  • Information Items, which will be provided in the forthcoming agenda. We will ask you to read this information beforehand and will address only those items that require clarification or discussion.
  • A presentation by John Dowds, City Chaplain, entitled Faith and the City. We will learn more about John's work as chaplain and the influence that faith and religious belief have in the administration of the City. There will be an opportunity for questions.
  • Viewing of the new and interactive Nativity Scene
  • Reception/Social featuring traditional German Christmas baking and mulled wine.
Please mark your calendars. We hope you will join us for this time of sharing and learning, of fellowship and preparation for Christmas.
