a contemplative and educational Anglican Church Women program for interested men and women.
Anglican priest, Rev. Lynn Uzans, will share her experience of being a transitional minister for a two-year period at First Baptist Church in Halifax.  Imagine a retired-from-parish-ministry Anglican priest’s surprise when she was asked by the First Baptist Church to be its transitional minister!  So taken aback was Rev. Lynn Uzans that she questioned whether First Baptist had phoned the right person! They had – they knew that Rev. Lynn had the skills they needed to guide First Baptist during this transition period. Lynn is a first class presenter and storyteller – you are in for a treat on Jan. 18. All are welcome.
