General Council Meetings

Grace to you and peace,
 
In preparing for our next meeting of EDCC, do please find attached the November minutes and our January agenda.  This month, we will be meeting at Noon on Tuesday, January 16th (brown bag lunch) at the Forum Room of the Ashbourne Residence, which is also the home of Garneau United Church and the Edmonton Interfaith Centre (11148 – 84 Avenue NW).  For parking, you can use the alley on the south side of Tim Horton’s but there is seldom any parking along the alley.  There is paid parking on the north side of the alley, east of the Tim Horton’s parking lot, or on the south side of 84 Avenue at 112 Street.  The entrance to the building is off the alley.
 
Our special guest this month for ‘Sharing the Journey’ is Rev. David Fekete about NAIN and the conference being held here this summer.  David is the minister of the Swedenborgian Church in Edmonton, and has been active in the Edmonton Interfaith Centre, and is now Past-President.  He has attended several NAIN Conferences and presented a paper at that last conference in San Diego last August.
 
On a pastoral note (and for your all of your prayers), there are two concerns that I’d also like to bring to your attentions:
Pastor Geri Redekop (Braemar Baptist Church) has been paralyzed from the waist down and awaiting surgery.  If anyone would like to visit Geri, he’s at the University of Alberta Hospital on 4A2.My father, Norman Kraglund, has recently suffered a heart attack and has been in the CCU at the Misericordia since Saturday. 
 
I look forward to seeing you all once again as we continue to celebrate our unity in Christ.
 
Faithfully yours in Christ,
Rev. Kevin Kraglund
President, Edmonton & District Council of Churches (EDCC)

“To gather with God’s people in united adoration of the Father
is as necessary to the Christian life as prayer.”
