Canadian Council of Churches - 75 Years

Rev Tim Purvis, Presbyterian Church in Canada

Why be a Christian?  Because God has, in an ultimate grace-filled act of self-disclosure, in Jesus Christ, revealed the divine nature to be one of self-giving, suffering, non-violent, transformative love; and to respond to that divine revelation in faith by living a Christ-like life of prayer and love in action is to know one’s truest, best, and most authentic self in God.
