Annual Congregational Meeting
Knox’s Annual Congregational meeting will be held on Sunday, March 24 beginning at 10:30 am. We will be framing the meeting with worship, and conducting the meeting as worship, to remind us that our congregational business is a part of our mission and community life, and that our meetings are also places in which we are called to discern the call and Spirit of God. We’ll begin in the manner of our traditional worship and end in the manner of PAX.
Lunch will be provided.
Among other items of business, we will be assessing our progress towards the Next 1100 Days vision, laying out our plans for the coming year, and approving the budget that will enable those plans to go forward. This is the meeting that will shape our life together for the coming year. Please come to worship, to discern God’s call, and to recommit to our walk of faith together.

Time to stand up and be counted!
As you know, Knox is a founding member of the Calgary Alliance for the Common Good (formerly the Metro Alliance for the Common Good, MACG). We have been working in the background for over a year now, building the organization and developing relationships across the city, and doing research and action plans in our chosen issue areas of reconciliation and seniors' support. Now the research has borne some fruit, we have refined plans by talking with city councilors, staff, and nonprofits, and now we're ready for some action.
CACG's first action assembly will be October 16, 7-9 pm, at Temple B'nai Tikvah. City Councilors will be present, perhaps even the Mayor. We have a proposal for a city-wide program to help provide supports to enable seniors to stay in their homes and communities longer, a program that has been tested and proven. But in this time of budgetary restraint, it is difficult for city council to find even the modest funds for this program. That's where we come in.
We need our members to show up at this Assembly, to show city council that we represent a significant number of Calgarians. We need to show the councilors who are working with us that we can offer real support, and we need to show the councilors who are reluctant to fund this program that it is important. We are asking for at least 20 people from Knox to stand up and be counted. Do you care about helping seniors stay in their homes and communities? Do you want a system in Calgary where people and businesses can be co-ordinated to make communities more supportive to seniors? Come and show Calgary that this matters!
We'll also hear more about CACG and community organizing, we likely will hear from Chief Lee Crowchild about progress on building relationships and support towards better relations between indigenous and settler peoples, and we'll get a chance to meet some of the other religious, community and labour groups who are a part of this movement.
If you'd like to stand up and be counted, please sign up with Dave after worship, or call in to the church office (403) 269-8382. And if you'd like to know more, contact Dave (or Doreen Orman, Susan Wood, Ellen Lang, or Gillian Ranson).
Carolyn Pogue will coach participants in their exploration of themes of reconciliation, from 10:00 till 4:00. To register, contact Carolyn Pogue, firstname.lastname@example.org or 403-228-1791. Cost is $60. This workshop is open to all interested folks, whether new, seasoned, timid and brave writers and explorers. See the poster on display for more information.
American concert pianist and philanthropist, Mark Damisch, will be performing at Knox on Tuesday, September 18 at 7 pm. Mr. Damisch performs worldwide, all on his own dime, all for charitable causes! He has performed in more than 40 countries, including Japan, Russia, Israel, Egypt, China, to mention only a few. He makes his career in Chicago as a personal injury and medical malpractice attorney, and is a former criminal prosecutor with the Cook County state attorney’s office. Donations for this concert will be devoted to the Inn from the Cold Child Care Centre at Knox. This is a concert not to be missed!
