WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY ~ The Association of Dundas Churches for the last three years has hosted a joint bible study open to all residences of Dundas. This year it will be held at St. Paul’s United Church on January 23rd and 25th from 10:30-12:00. Different countries set the theme each year and this year the theme comes from the Caribbean. “Today Caribbean Christians of many different traditions see the hand of God active in the ending of enslavement.” From this statement taken from the resources we will focus our study on the impact slavery has families today, and on human trafficking today, with presentation from Rev. Helen Pryor who ministered in the Caribbean, and Scott Forbes of the International Justice Mission.
