Friends in Justice,
Rev. Barry Morris, of Longhouse Ministries, along with Sarah Higgins, recently of St. Andrew’s United Church in North Vancouver, has provided to us the following Advent resources, for ways you can incorporate Guaranteed Livable Income. Check out the document here, and take a look at the United Church of Canada’s GLI page at this link.
Vigil for the Silenced, Saturday, December 10th, at noon Pacific
Please note that on Sat. Dec. 10th, noon hour Pacific, at the corner of E. 1st & Commercial Drive, there will be a modest Advent Vigil for the Silenced. This has occurred, now, for some 20 years — also there will be a later Lent Vigil for the Silenced.
Advent marks the season we soon engage; for the “Silenced”, names and evokes those whose life conditions illustrate what it means to feel silenced or crushed or left out or shut down or unwelcome or estranged or pre-judged. Vigil means standing or sitting in shared silence while yet in public to bear a prophetic witness that aches for right-wising. This season we will draw attention to the churches’ call, with other networks and city councils across the country, for a Guaranteed Livable Income (GLI).
