Greetings to all! I have been watching this board for a few years and have finally decided to jump in. I found it difficult to pick a name for the board and finally settled on a reference to Guido de Bres' wife, which may give you an indication that my church holds to the three Forms of Unity. I live in southwestern Ontario; was born, raised and did profession of faith in the CanRC, where I have stayed. God blessed my late husband and me with six boys, all married now. After some time of widowhood I remarried and I thank God for his grace in this! I've been very active in church Bible studies and in every committee in our CanRC schools. However for the last 20 years I've also been very involved politically and have even run for Member of Parliament, as an outworking of my faith which led me to profess Christ's name there. So just a bit of background--I look forward to interactions here! I'm just editing to add that coming here has at times been like parting a curtain and looking into different vistas I've never seen before. Members of our churches can live almost apart from the world. We start businesses and employ fellow church members, we are busy with an overwhelming number of committees and groups in our church community and we work hard in our parentally run, non government funded schools. I feel we can sometimes lose sight of the other Christians running the race alongside us.
