Presentation at St Giles in the Sanctuary entitled “The Scandal of Division and the Promise of Unity” by the Rev. Amanda Currie, Moderator of the 2019 General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, Brief synopsis: Rooted in a reflection on Paul’s first letter to the Church at Corinth, Amanda shares about the scandal of the divided Body of Christ and the promise of unity in Christ through love. Amanda is a Presbyterian minister who is married to Nicholas Jesson, a Roman Catholic ecumenist. For the last 19 years, they have lived as an interchurch couple, sharing life, faith, and ministry together in two churches. They currently live in Regina, Saskatchewan. Amanda grew up in the Glebe and was an active member of St Giles where she sang in the choir. Refreshments will be served downstairs in the Banquet Hall following the presentation. This event is open to everyone and should appeal particularly to anyone with an interest in ecumenism.
