Together We Are the Body of Christ! We celebrate our diversity, and are committed to working together. We celebrate our relationships, and are committed to modeling civil discourse. We celebrate the people of Canada, and are committed to upholding the dignity of all. With energy and faith, together we strive FOR: • Equity and respect • Knowledge and understanding • Dynamic expressions of Christian faith • Just healthcare and Care for creation • Youth engagement and peace initiatives • Dialogue and positive relationships with all sectors of society. With determination and hope, together we strive AGAINST: • Discrimination and disrespect – as seen in racism • Ignorance and Indifference – which causes some to belittle or reject the Christian Church • Victimization and marginalization– as seen in human trafficking • Conflict and abuse of creation – as seen in exploitive social policies • Alienation and despair – as experienced by those suffering from economic injustice. We believe in creative possibilities. We believe that faith matters. We long for a better Canada. We speak and work for a hope-filled future for every human being. We are the Canadian Council of Churches.
