Despite our recent doctrinal shift, many evangelical / orthodox / traditional believers within the PCC remain called to the places where we currently worship and serve.
We may feel isolated and discouraged, but we are not alone. We can be stronger and better equipped to carry out our calls when we get together. Join with other kindred souls who adhere to our unchanging Lord and Saviour.
We’ll hear words of encouragement from Rev. Dr. Kevin Livingston, associate professor at Tyndale University and minister at Clairlea Park Presbyterian Church in Toronto, Ontario.
Start time: 12:30 p.m. Newfoundland, 12 Noon Atlantic, 11 a.m. Eastern, 10 a.m. Central, 9 a.m. Mountain and 8 a.m. Pacific.

Lessons from Squirrel Land. Picture a collection of old trees, filled with squirrels darting up and down the trunks and back and forth across the branches. They are frenetically active.
