A new compilation of sermons given at the 146th General Assembly of The Presbyterian Church in Canada is now available to order. The booklet includes four sermons, all of which were preached at the 2021 General Assembly: three sermons preached by the Rev. Dr. Richard Topping, Principal at the Vancouver School of Theology, and the opening sermon preached by the Rev. Amanda Currie, Moderator of the 2019 General Assembly.

The theme of the Assembly was “Fear not, I am with you,” a text from Isaiah 43. It is a timely text for the situation the church, and all the world, is in. We were online because of a worldwide pandemic and, amid that challenge, economic disparities, racism and the tragic legacy of Residential Schools were writ large. Clergy and lay leaders were (are) facing fatigue at pivoting to online services and, as a denomination, this Assembly faced hard discussion amidst the general decline in church attendance in our country. “Fear not, I am with you.” We long for that word.

—Preface by the Rev. Dr. Richard Topping, Principal at the Vancouver School of Theology
