 10.         LUNCH and LEARN: What is the United Nations???

You are invited to our Lunch and Learn Seminar on March 08, at 12:30 p.m. in the Church Hall.  Our guest speaker is Don McLean who will talk about the modern day UN which was established in 1945 as a by-product of World War II. The United Nations officially came into existence on 24 October 1945, when the Charter had been ratified by China, France, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, the United States (the 5 Permanent Members) and by a majority of other signatories. The forerunner of the United Nations was the League of Nations, an organization conceived in similar circumstances during the first World War, and established in 1919 under the Treaty of Versailles "to promote international cooperation and to achieve peace and security." The League of Nations ceased its activities after failing to prevent the Second World War.  What does the modern day UN look like? How many entities are there under the United Nations umbrella? How many people work for the UN. Let us explore this and the guiding UN principles that navigates this global entity through wars, conflicts, poverty, the disenfranchised, gender inequality and children. This brief overview is meant to broaden the layman's understanding of the United Nations as it exists today.



This July, hundreds of youth, young adults and leaders will gather for five days of soul-satisfying worship at Canada Youth. They will enjoy unique expressions of faith in both large and small groups, inspiring keynotes and workshops, dynamic faith exploration and joyful celebration. For 20 years, CY has been a gathering place for all kinds of enthusiastic Presbyterians to worship, play, create, learn, dance, sing, act, make new friends, study scripture, share joy, reflect, pray and share. More than 4,000 people have attended the event since it began, and the impact has been felt across our church. Presbyterians Sharing provides support for this unique event which comes around once every two years. Let’s celebrate the vibrant ministry of The Presbyterian Church in Canada!
