Rev. Karen Hamilton, director of the Canadian Council of Churches, brought greetings to Synod 2010 on behalf of the 23 denominations the CCC represents.
With Anglican, Roman Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox churches included, the council represents 85 percent of Christians in Canada.
Rev. Bruce Adema, director of Canadian Ministries for the CRC, is currently the council’s president.
Hamilton told delegates to continue bringing the many gifts of the CRC to the world. “You have so much to say,” she said, “so many gifts—your vitality, your passion for Scripture, your willingness to work for others.”
