We are starting a new year with the faith and the commitment to ensure the WSCF-NA continues to be a community of students and young adults committed to embodying the radical and prophetic voice for peace, social, economic, gender and ecological justice.
We will send a monthly update of what we have done, what we are planning and what where we are going to do. However, we pray that this newsletter is not just a one-way street of communications, but also you will be in touch with us. Send us your stories, accomplishments and upcoming events so that we can share with the wider community email@example.com. Also, we encourage you to follow us on our social media channels Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
So far we are off to a flying start as we celebrated our Board Meeting January 5th through to the 6th in Ottawa, Canada. In addition to discussing plans and ideas for the year, the time was spent sharing in fellowship and growing a deeper connection throughout the board.
