Religion and Politics? Janice Meighan to launch new book about Sen. Lois Wilson
We're so pleased to announce the launch of a fabulous new book by a prominent member of our congregation. Janice Meighan, who has led so many wonderful study sessions, book studies, and rituals for our community, has also spent the last several years working on a biography of the Very Reverend, the Honourable Lois M. Wilson, a phenomenal Canadian leader. Lois was the first female moderator of The United Church of Canada as well as the first female President of the World Council of Churches, and she was also appointed a Senator. Lois continues to offer her pointed critique of the life of Canadian society, global politics, and the church.
Janice's book is called Feisty and Fearless: Glimpses into the Life of Lois M. Wilson," and we are hosting the launch of the book! Janice will speak during our service on the major themes of the book, politics and religion, gender, and blazing a trail. Lois Wilson is a gem of our denomination and we're so excited to read the book!
May 4, Sunday, 10:30 a.m., Janice will speak during the service, and the book will be available for purchase afterwards (and Janice will be signing copies)!
