Truth & Reconciliation  - Invitation from Crosslife Church:
On November 18 at 5pm, Crosslife Church will be hosting a presentation from Carrielynn Lund who will talk about her experience in the residential school system, challenges she has faced in her life and how through faith she has and is seeing painful and overwhelming realities redeemed for helping others. Crosslife has asked Carrie along with sharing her story, to challenge us on how we can join others making a significant and positive impact in our city and how knowing God makes all the difference. For more information and to register, please visit http://www.crosslife.ca/orange-. This event will be at St. Margaret’s. There is also a link on this page which you can follow to learn more about Carrielynn Lund.
