Un-Equip – Creative COVID Christians
ONLINE Thursdays (October 15, 22, 29) beginning at 7:00 PM PDT
EQUIP holds a valued position in the history, memory and practice of the Territory of the People. Over many years, friendships are formed, ministry is strengthened, new ways of prayer and worship are tried, often for the first time. That said, and given the challenged COVID-19 has brought to our daily life we offer this year an alternative online form of gathering. It is not the same for sure, but it will be significant and we hope helpful as we all navigate the choppy waters of daily pandemic life. This year, Un-Equip will base its activity on a passage from Ephesians 4:
Christ has given every person gifts for the shared purpose of building up Christ’s body on earth, so that all may come to the unity of faith.
In our journey of life changes and growth as disciples of Christ, the crisis of a global pandemic has challenged us to discern new methods of maintaining community, gathering for worship, and living out our vocation in witness to the gospel of Christ.

Everyone is invited to come together virtually for three ninety-minute Zoom sessions on Thursdays (October 15, 22, 29) beginning at 7:00 PM PDT
Guest Presenter The Rev. Dr. Heather McCance
Zoom Host: The Rev. John Boyd
Technician: The Very Rev. Ken Gray

Guest presenter: The Rev. Dr. Heather McCance, Ministry Developer,
Anglican Diocese of Ruperts Land (Manitoba). Heather writes:
My ministry purpose is to create environments that empower people to
claim, develop and use the gifts and talents God has given them, as
individuals and as communities, to pursue God’s mission in the world
and to build up the church of Christ.
I have demonstrated gifts in leadership within the church, an ability to
see the “big picture” of the wider Church and our role in the world, and to
think and plan strategically.
I am an educator, from one-on-one mentoring to creating and leading faith formation programs
in congregations to planning and teaching university credit courses.
My ministry is one of collaborative leadership, joy and passion, working with others, clergy and
lay, to help them use their own gifts for ministry.
I have the ability to relate well with people of all ages, from toddlers through seniors, and from a
variety of cultural backgrounds, seeing all as children of God in all their diversity.
I see and strengthen connections between worship, faith development and reaching into the
world with God’s love.
