CBS Ontario & Nunavut Regional District Dinner

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.”

Treneta Bowden, Indigenous artist and founder of Faith Arise Ministries encouraged to strive for full restoration (2 Cor.13), to obey and be open to the cry of the father (John 10:16) and to stay reverent and surrender to God’s call (Exodus 3: 7-10).
Rev. Kenny Sault, Indigenous Lead Pastor and Worship Leader and team led prayer and worship.
