Monday Meditation: Imagine this - lying back
awash in cool liquid
eyes tightly shut and then up and out.
Eyes opened to a new lightness of being.
A spirit restoration.

From Karen's eSpirit message this week:
The church is changing.
This phrase appears on our banner which is hung outside of the building. It is a phrase that catches the eye and curiosity of some people walking past. Some even walk through the doors to find out more!
The wider church is also changing and that involves much discussion, research and voting at various levels. When the United Church of Canada's General Council makes a decision that brings "substantive, denomination-shaping changes to the Basis of Union," it comes back to the congregations across Canada as a "remit."

There are 5 remits that have come to congregations across Canada from the 42nd General Council of 2015:

- Three-Council Model - would consist of communities of faith, regional councils, and a denominational council. Presbytery and Conference would be eliminated.
- Elimination of Transfer and Settlement - candidates would send applications to specific ministries or communities of faith.
- Office of Vocation - establish standards for training and accreditation of ministry personnel.
- Funding a New Model - use Mission and Service to fund ministry and mission activities, share assessments equitably across the whole church.
- One Order of Ministry This proposal expands the current order of ministry stream to be more representative of the practice of the vocation in our church.

The Council at Beach will be voting on these remits. This Sunday, Beach United member Jim McKibbin, who is a General Council representative, will be sharing more about these remits. He will also be receiving any feedback you might have. This is an opportunity to participate in shaping this church of ours.
