Supporting growth in faith, hope and love takes many forms at James Bay United Church. Study groups in the Season of Creation, Advent and Lent include books studies, movies series, and guided field trips. Guides for reflection during Advent and Lent are developed and distributed to all. Spiritual formation is nurtured through online Thursday Morning Prayer, a weekly online guided Centering Prayer, Mindfulness Meditation courses and recently a Healing Pathways workshop.
Climate action and Indigenous Justice and Reconciliation are central to our understanding of the gospel, and our growth in understanding and action in these areas is supported in study groups and educational events. Indigenous leaders along with members of JBUC are offering a six session online course based on “To Share, Not Surrender” a book which focuses on the Douglas Treaties of Vancouver Island and our responsibilities which flow from those treaties.
