The Ontario & Nunavut regional district at the Canadian Bible Society (CBS) hosted its first-ever dinner after the start of the pandemic. It was a great occasion to meet CBS donors, partners and supporters and learn more about the Canadian Bible Society’s support of Indigenous language Bible translations.
Here are a few highlights from the dinner and program.
The keynote speaker at the event, Rev. Dr. Andrew Stirling shared about CBS’s support of Indigenous translations and how they are helping with language reclamation.
Addressing the gathering, Rev. Dr. Rupen Das, President, CBS, said that in today’s digital age, when seventy percent translations are done by Bible Societies, CBS has a crucial role to play, in helping people hear God speak.
Brian Evans, Chair of the CBS Board of Governors drew attention to John 1:14 in his closing remarks. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
