From fragility to
the Prophetic BREATH!
In this issue, the members of the CRC’s Theological Commission chose to focus their articles on “embracing fragilities and limits we are experiencing in our congregations and church today, and the possibilities for new life when faced with these challenges.” Lorraine d’Entremont, SC explains what led to the choice of this theme: “…The guiding star for these articles was CRC’s General Assembly 2018 as well as further reflection of the Theological Commission on the presentations and conversations of the Assembly.”
The Theological Commission is made up of eight theologians (all of whom are members of religious communities), and meets twice annually, to explore themes connected to the interests of religious communities, and to share publications, resources and other useful reference sources.
The questions at the end of each article aim to help you further your personal and community reflection. You may share your thoughts and comments with the authors of each article.
Do not hesitate to send us your comments and reflections at firstname.lastname@example.org as you go about reading the articles.
We also invite you to share this publication with your community, collaborators and other people.
