ABOUT THE PROJECT
Creating Conversation: A weekly editorial for people to spark dialogue with the Church in Vancouver. How do we foster better conversations about issues that matter among different churches and Christ followers in Vancouver? This question has prompted Tim to work alongside Flyn Ritchie in curating a weekly opinion editorial column in the Church for Vancouver. In this column, a variety or writers will be invited to speak to the Church in Metro Vancouver. We hope to invite people who have an important word for our city to write an op/ed that will stimulate our imaginations for how we might share in God’s restoring work in our city.
