Presenter: Allyson Carr, Associate Secretary

What makes a good friend or neighbour, and how is that tied to justice? In this webinar, the first of three in a series about relationships and justice, we’ll explore some stories of friendship from Scripture and other sources to look at the importance of friendship and being “neighbourly” when it comes to building just relations—not only with those you are close with, but as groundwork for healthy communities.

Leadership & Renewal

Canadian Ministries

Wednesday, April 29, 2020
1:00 – 2:00 p.m. (Eastern)
Hosted by: Canadian Ministries
Presenter: Joyce MacKichan Walker, Presbyterian Church USA

Although forming faith draws on many practices that hold for all-ages, there are unique and distinctive ways to help shape the faith-lives of older adults. Let’s explore some of these and the principles that both undergird them and encourage your own creativity when working with mature and older adults.

Joyce MacKichan Walker was the director of Christian education at Nassau Presbyterian Church in Princeton, New Jersey for 18 years, and in 2007 became the minister of education. Joyce teaches certification classes for educational ministry in the PC(USA), and for POAMN – The Presbyterian Older Adult Ministry Network, in addition to teaching adjunct at Princeton Theological Seminary. She is a Canadian-American who grew up in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and returns to Canada at least once a year. She retired in July of 2018 so now is thrilled to say yes to fun and challenging invitations to teach, especially if they involve travel!

Presenter: Patricia Baker, President Elect, Presbyterian Older Adult Ministries Network, Presbyterian Church, USA

Caregivers often need to be reminded to take care of themselves when they take on the role of family caregiver for a spouse, parent or other member of their family. This webinar will provide a general view of what caregivers face today and how they respond to the challenges and rewards of this role. We’ll look at stress and burn out- identifying it and preventing it as well as some problem solving techniques. We’ll also explore the role of the faith community and how to accept help and give help.

Pat Baker, MS, has worked in the field of aging and with family caregivers her entire career. She recently retired from working for the government with the Older Americans Act programs and services. In the 1980’s she worked at two different PC(USA) churches in older adult ministry and is glad to be back doing older adult and caregiver ministry in her local church in retirement. She is President-Elect for the Presbyterian Older Adult Ministries Network that she has been involved with since its inception.

Presenter: Alice Post, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Calgary

Families living with a dementia diagnosis are facing a lot of changes, with each change representing a loss to be grieved. Often, for various reasons, they face these changes alone. This webinar will talk about how churches are uniquely positioned to help by providing regular weekly fellowship for the person living with a dementia diagnosis, while simultaneously encouraging and enabling care partners to take personal time.

Alice was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, and has called St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Calgary her church home for as long as she can remember. She has served as the Side by Side Program Coordinator at St. Andrew’s since early in 2013, and is continually amazed by, and grateful for, the loving hearts, willing hands, and the thoughtful, caring kindness she encounters every week at the St. Andrew’s Side by Side program. Alice is a lifelong learner, and holds bachelor degrees in Linguistics and Psychology.

1:00 – 2:00 p.m. (Eastern)
Hosted by: Canadian Ministries
Presenter: The Rev. Dr. Esther Acolatse

Death is a natural part of life. Yet in our death-denying culture even Christians are walking on tenterhooks around what we know is natural. In this webinar, we will attend to some of the historical antecedents to our reticent or even fear of death and dying and learn how to accompany others and prepare ourselves to engage this final act of life. We will discuss how our Christian beliefs about death and everlasting life can inform how we live as people of faith. After all, death is not so much about dying but about living.

Bio
The Rev. Dr. Esther Acolatse is an Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology and Intercultural Studies at Knox College in Toronto, ON. Her current research focuses on issues around care and counseling with migrant families and implications for intra/interfaith dialogue and spiritual care. She is also interested in cultural anthropological dimensions of medicine, health, and healing, and their implications for suffering, death, dying, and care at the end of life.
