Do you have a special memory that you associate with the United Church in BC? A life-changing experience? A heartbreaking moment? A fond memory of a person who had a profound impact on your faith?
You lived it . . . now help us write about it. The Archives and History Committee is looking for personal stories that help illustrate the life and work of BC Conference since about 1970. We’re compiling a book to update F.E. Runnalls’ history of BC Conference, It’s God’s Country (1974). Some of the topics will include:
- Youth and children’s ministry
- Urban missions
- Native ministries
- Vancouver School of TheologyUCW
- Inter-cultural ministry
- Shared/ecumenical ministries
- World Council of Churches 6th Assembly
We aim to evoke memories, inspire story-telling, and spark debates far and wide!
Please share your memories and photos on our Facebook group, “BC Conference Memories” at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/697594290253410/
