2019 World Conference Delegate Registration Fees
to be Reimbursed by Mission Centre!

This is for the information of any member considering being a delegate from the Canada West Centre to the 2019 World Conference, scheduled for April 6 to 13, 2019.

This will be a special conference. Besides the usual business of the church, there will be special celebrations in honour of the 25th anniversary of the dedication of the Community of Christ Temple in Independence, Missouri.

The Canada West Mission Centre will once again assist delegates with the registration fee for the conference. We do not know for sure what that fee will be. In 2016 it was $140 in US funds, which converted to an average of about $190 Canadian at that time.

Undertaking the responsibility of being a delegate to World Conference includes a significant financial commitment. Although a small portion of total expenses, the Canada West Mission Centre is pleased to be able to provide this assistance.

Please consider your availability to serve as a World Conference Delegate. Any confirmed member in good standing is eligible. There is no age requirement and no priesthood requirement. Advise Debra Donohue debra@communityofchrist.ca of your interest as soon as possible

Tech Tip

Why are we starting to blind cc (bcc) emails to multiple groups?

It’s because of Spoofing 

Definition - What does Spoofing mean?

According to Techopedia, Spoofing, in general, is a fraudulent or malicious practice in which communication is sent from an unknown source disguised as a source known to the receiver. Spoofing is most prevalent in communication mechanisms that lack a high level of security.

For example, if you receive an email from debra@communitypark171cba@gmail.com

Debra Dit's not from me.

Always check the sender’s email address before you click on any links, and remember to always blind cc your group emails.  Many email accounts have security set too low and they will make all of us vulnerable to Spoofing.

Quotes of the Week

Promise me you'll always remember:

You're braver than you believe,

and stronger than you seem,

and smarter than you think.

If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.

Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.
