The OMM Refugee Committee is very pleased to have submitted our sponsorship application for our chosen family of 6 to the Canadian Unitarian Council staff. We realize that there are still many steps to be accomplished before we are likely to see them arriving in Ottawa but we count on the government to continue to provide the staffing needed in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon to help expedite the work done by Canadian citizens like ourselves.
We recently explored whether we could accept Interac e-mail money transfers to facilitate donations to either our general or our refugee funds. We can do this, however it is not an automated process so it's best to check first with the treasurer to make sure she's in-town and ready to accept it. (E-mail address is treasurer.ottawafriends with a gmail.com extension.) We believe the steps are:
We understand the Bible as a record arising from ... struggles to comprehend God's ways with people. The same Spirit which inspired the writers of the Bible is the Spirit which gives us understanding of it: it is this which is important to us rather than the literal words of scripture.
