Special Reminder
National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
Dear Friend,
Welcome to the fall! I know you have entered a busy season, and I look forward to connecting with you with future updates. As you focus on welcoming back your members and relaunching your fall programming, I want to remind you of a very important upcoming event that has been prepared in collaboration with our denominational partners. 
 
This September 30th is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. As a Canadian Baptist family, our denominations and women's groups, along with CBM, have created a special online service that will be broadcast from coast to coast to coast. I am pleased to extend this invitation to you and your church to join as one in this collective public witness.
 

This collaborative service of remembrance and reflection will feature indigenous voices, music and personal stories of residential school survivors. This service will be a time to lament the past and renew hope for a more generative future as we seek to walk in a good way together.

The service is free to attend and is approximately 75 minutes in length.
However, you must register in advance at www.cbmin.org/nationalday.


On the site, you will also find some resources for your consideration with suggestions of a few practical steps you can take before attending the service.

It has been said, "It's hard to get Baptists to fly in formation," But we are proud of the efforts of this event's planning committee. Proud too of the unity and shared vision demonstrated by our denominations and women's groups along with CBM in what they have planned. May God be glorified as we gather in his presence.
I do hope you can join us on September 30th
10:30 am – Mountain
9:30 am – Pacific

I look forward to connecting with you soon, and until then, please know I am only an email or phone call away if there is anything I can do to support you.
In partnership,
Dennis Shierman 
Regional Representative, Western Canada
