Annual Delegate Session Reflections

.                                        from our moderator, Brenda Tiessen-Wiens

How fitting that our theme of Encountering, Embracing, Embodying Christ in Community began with worship and was full of community-building time  together! Although Saturday’s business session elicited less discussion than expected, attendance and engagement at workshops leading up to the ADS were full of thoughtful feedback and affirmation. When I think back to last year's discussion, it's clear that we are entering our second year of COVID uncertainty with greater confidence and faith. I look forward to seeing plans and dreams take shape in 2021 and to the fresh perspectives that new committee members bring!

Just as a bulb can grow to show the beauty of its Creator,

we too are created with the potential to show God and God's love to those around us. 

May these plants encourage us to show God's love to others.

This past year MCA Executive and General Council began a review of MCA’s Constitution and Bylaws, which had not been updated for some time. A number of revisions and updates have been made in response to this review.

The following documents have been prepared to assist in discernment.
