Together for influence, impact and identity

CLEMENGER TO SPEAK TO GATHERING OF MPs
Bruce J. Clemenger, president of The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC), will speak to a gathering of MPs on Parliament Hill this week to discuss child protection and the welfare of children in Canada. The EFC mandate is to better equip churches to effectively respond to issues facing all Canadians from an evangelical understanding of life, and to work with government leaders to effect change.

CLEMENGER ON 100 HUNTLEY ST
Watch Bruce J. Clemenger, EFC's president, in his candid interview about the welfare of Canadian children, the 30,000 children needing a forever home and how Evangelicals can be involved.

PARTNERSHIP ANYONE?
Ministry partnerships, done well, can help us all have a greater impact in Canada. Co-hosted by the EFC, the Partnership Training Conference, April 11-15 in Guelph, Ont. will help you identify potential partners and form appropriate partnership structures. Join us.

GO AHEAD, MIX POLITICS AND RELIGION!
The EFC’s Don Hutchinson comments on the relationships involved in bringing biblical principles to bear on public policy in the ActivateCFPL blog “Does ‘Politics Make For Strange Bedfellows’?”

UPDATE ON URGENT PRAYER ALERT FOR AFGHANISTAN CHRISTIAN FACING EXECUTION
An urgent Prayer Alert was issued last week by the EFC's Religious Liberty Commission asking for prayer and action for the Afghanistan Christian who was facing execution. God has indeed answered the prayers of many around the world and that Said Musa has been released! Please continue to pray for other Afghanistan Christians still imprisoned for their faith. Read more about Said Musa here.

BEFORE YOU BLOW YOUR TOP
Contrary to popular thinking that we should "let it all out," some experts teach that we can and should restrain our anger. Read more on Christianity.ca.
