WORKSHOPS AND PRESENTERS:

Nov 10 and 11:  1001 New Worshiping Communities - with Vera White
Since its inception in 2012, the PCUSA initiative 1001 New Worshiping Communities has established hundreds of new churches based on a more outward, creative and disciple-making (as opposed to maintenance) model of church. Presented by Vera White (National Associate, 1001 Worshiping Communities), this workshop will inspire you with compelling stories from this exciting new movement.

Nov. 11: Doctor Assisted Suicide - a panel discussion
On Feb. 6th 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled unanimously that adults with grievous and irremediable medical conditions should have the right to ask a doctor to help them die. As federal and provincial governments work to craft legislation on doctor assisted suicide, clergy, as well as family members, will face challenging real-life circumstances as they deal with parishioners and loved ones who wish to exercise this right. What are the questions? What principles can guide us? Panel to be composed of an ethicist, physician and director of palliative care (to be confirmed).

Nov. 12: Singing the Story of Advent and Christmas - with Hilary Seraph Donaldson
The journey toward Bethlehem has many songs along the way. To sing the story of Advent is to breathe it in and send it out, to mutually incarnate the Word in a season which remembers the Word Incarnate. Led by Hilary Seraph Donaldson (M.A., M.S.M.), this participatory session will explore how congregational song can be used to sing the mystery and theology of Advent, and the unique perspective that congregational song can lend to embodying a festive season with a prophetic edge.

This forum will be a chance to discuss the findings from the Centre's recent research project: "Religious Attitudes and Commitments of 1.5 and 2nd Generation Asian-Canadian Protestant Young Adults," in which researchers surveyed 300 Asian-Canadian University students who identify as Protestant to better understand their religious attitudes and commitments to their churches, as well as gauge their ideas and expectations about the church and youth ministry.

The forum will include presentations from the research team, responses from a panel of youth pastors that minister to Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese and other Canadian churches, and an opportunity for audience members to ask questions and discuss the research.
