Remit 1 – Ensure Your Community of Faith’s Vote Counts!

Dear friends across Pacific Mountain Regional Council,

In the coming days and weeks, you will see an increase in Remit 1 vote reminders. That’s because the deadline for each community of faith to cast their 1 (one) collective vote is March 31, 2024. 

 

We’re keeping reminders of the Remit 1 vote deadline at the forefront of our communications. If any community of faith does not cast a ballot, the absence of its ballot is registered as a NO VOTE: a vote against the creation of an autonomous Indigenous United Church.

Regional Ministers Kendra Mitchell-Foster, Rev. Teri Meyers, and the determined Vision Council of Shaughnessy United Church are sharing much Vote-support information.

Recently, News of Note included a message from Rev. Dave Moors, one of the ministers at Shaughnessy Heights United Church, in Vancouver. Their congregation has made it a priority to support other communities of faith in our region to cast their vote. Click to read the message (and apologies for the misspelling of Rev. Dave’s last name!): News of Note – January 23, 2024.

This note from Rev. Teri Meyer, Indigenous Minister for Pacific Mountain Region may also assist, and inspire:

On behalf of your Pacific Mountain Regional Council’s Indigenous Ministries Executive Team (PMRC-IM), I offer you and your Community of Faith (CoF), Epiphany Greetings!

My name is Teri Meyer, and, as of January 1, 2024, I am your part-time Acting Indigenous Minister, serving while John Snow has taken time away for health reasons. We continue to pray for his well-being and whole and holy-self healing.

Please check the links provided for Remit 1 information and voting forms. Remember, not voting is considered a “No” vote. At the National Spiritual Gathering held in Edmonton last summer, where approximately 12 members of the PMRC attended, the delegates voted in support of Remit 1 – in support of an autonomous Indigenous United Church of Canada.

If you do not know your “Community of Faith ID No.” , please contact the Regional Council Office.

 

Blessings,

Pacific Mountain
