Wider Church / Interfaith
As a pastor in the ELCIC, I also must stay connected with what’s known as the “wider church”. This connection usually happens through email and other mailed correspondence. However, sometimes I attend meetings with other clergy. From time to time, I meet with pastors from our area ministry or synod staff.
Our congregation was invited to an open house at the Al Falah Islamic Centre in Oakville. Grant Swanson and I attended on behalf of Grace. They set up a wonderful presentation which explained their faith and practices.
