JUST A REMINDER – 2019 CALENDARS
Once again, we will be collecting old calendars with nice pictures. They will
be taken to the Edmonton ReUse Centre where folks can pick up material
for craft projects. Toward the end of December, there will be a box in the
coatroom for calendars as well as Christmas cards.


                                   WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LOVE OUR NEIGHBOUR:                                                                                   A COMMUNITY EXPLORATION

POSTPONED TO JANUARY 29 BECAUSE OF FRIGID TEMPERATURES!!!

Program Purpose                                                                                                                 

Through the spring/summer of 2019 Rev. Mervin Gallant was on sabbatical meeting with a variety of marginalized community groups. Through these conversations it became clear that to be supportive of these neighbours in our community we need to get to know their stories and build relationships. Come hear the stories of a different group of folks each week, ask your questions, join in a discussion of how we can be more supportive neighbours to each other.

Where: SAUC Sanctuary

Upcoming Dates:  Now Wednesday, January 29  – 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

The Hizmet (or alternatively Gulen) movement is a worldwide initiative inspired by the ideas and activism of Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen. Main active areas of the movement are education, interfaith dialogue, and charity. The supporters of the movement have made substantial investments in private schools, dialogue centres, and non-profit hospitals/health clinics and other philanthropic institutions in over 100 countries including Canada.
Hizmet supporters and sympathizers are now facing systematic oppression operated by Erdogan government in Turkey after the coup attempt in 2016. The government of Turkey blamed the movement for the coup and thousands of people have been arrested. Many have been tortured in jails and murdered. Some of the victims were able to seek refuge and started a new life in Edmonton. In this event you will hear about the purges going in Turkey and the stories of people who were oppressed by the Turkish government.
