Last Friday I sat down with some good friends of ours, Brendan and Sharon Witton. They are pastors of Toronto City Church, a thriving multi-ethnic faith community in the heart of Toronto. Sharon is a black Canadian. Brendan is a caucasian Canadian. They are married. They are national leaders. They are amazing. We had a candid conversation about what is happening right now in our nation in the wake of George Flyod's murder. We talked about Sharon's personal experience in Canada and wrestled with how we can move forward in a spirit if love and reconciliation in a 'real' way. At the end of our conversation we pray together for our nation. Our heart in sharing this conversation is to help bring healing, authentic conversation (not glossing over some of the elephants in the room) and hopefully deeper understanding. We love you and we love Canada. Please join with us.

Combatting PTSD & Antisemitism
MPP Will Bouma • October 4, 2020 • MPP Will Bouma
76% of Canadians report experiencing a traumatic event in their life, 8% of those are expected to experience what is called PTSD. This equates to 2.3 million Canadians. The number of antisemitic incidents in Canada set records for a 4th year in a row last year (2019). Our guest this week has taken up the fight against both of these important issues. Will Bouma is an elected representative of the Ontario Legislative Assembly who has already passed a bill regarding PTSD awareness and is now working on one regarding antisemitism. We hope you can join us!
