Conversations

Who we talk with and listen to shapes who we are and who we might become. These days phone conversations and virtual gatherings have become a lifeline. You are probably unlikely to pick up the phone and call David Miller but here is an opportunity to listen to what he has to say and ask a question.

David Miller, a former Toronto Mayor, and author of Solved: How the World's Great Cities Are Fixing the Climate Crisis, will discuss the climate crisis Wednesday May 19th in a conversation hosted on Zoom by St. Aidan’s Anglican and Beach United churches.

The core idea of Solved, in Miller’s own words, is that “… by replicating the best and most effective ideas already implemented.... we can make a significant leap forward in mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and put the world on a path to 1.5 degrees. The ideas discussed in this book have all been implemented somewhere.”

The similar theologies of Beach United and St. Aidan’s; along with a history of effective joint projects and combination of resources, encouraged the further development of this partnership into the area of Eco-spirituality. We hope you will join us and add your voice to this important conversation.

Apology from the United Church of Canada to women who lost children in the 50s', 60’s, 70’s and 80’s to adoption because they were young and not married and had no support to look after a baby. It has taken 10 years of advocating for some kind of recognition for these women who are now seniors. Use the link below to watch the video.
