On the eve of leaving for #GC42

August 5, 2015 - Keith Simmonds

Hello My Friends,

In two days I'll be travelling to the 42nd General Council in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. By the time I get there I should be as ready as I'll ever be for the conversations, considerations and discernment that will follow. Our schedule looks fairly packed, with lots of intentional work before us over the course of our week together.

Justice is rolling in BC
