Together for influence, impact and identity

A SWEDISH ANSWER TO THE PROSTITUTION DEBATE
The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada’s (EFC) Julia Beazley comments on a recent report evaluating Sweden's ban on the purchase of sexual services in this Activate CFPL blog. In its recent report, Selling Ourselves, the EFC recommended that the Canadian government follow the Nordic model regarding prostitution, which has had promising results since its inception in Sweden ten years ago.

THE QUEEN’S CHURCH
Lorna Dueck, executive producer of Listen Up TV, explores the significance of the Queen’s personal faith, exemplified by her visit to St. James Cathedral during her recent Canadian tour. Read the Globe and Mail article on Christianity.ca, a ministry of the EFC.

A SNAPSHOT OF THE EFC
Would you like your congregation to have access to an overview of EFC’s latest ministry initiatives? As a benefit of the EFC’s congregational affiliate program, a concise bulletin-sized newsletter, called Snapshot, will be sent to your church office on a quarterly basis.  If interested in knowing more, please contact [email protected]. You can help lead your congregation to affiliate with, and in turn, inform and help generate prayer support for our country’s leaders and for the EFC’s work on Parliament Hill, in the Courts, and through various other ministries.

THE TRUE NORTH STRONG AND FREE?: EVANGELICALS AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
If the “price of freedom is eternal vigilance,” The Canadian Evangelicalism Bibliographies Project’s (CEBP) Religious Liberty pages are a place you can begin your watch.  Learn both about the history of religious liberty in Canada and find resources to help you deal with contemporary issues.

SUMMER DAZE
There are only a few updates this week, as the full bounty of summer keeps things at a slightly more relaxed pace here at the EFC. Thank you for checking in this week. We hope you are having a blessed summer!
