Welcome to the new DPC website and to our new blog, DPC Voices! This is where we will be sharing stories & reflections from across our community.
Please bear with us as we get this new website up and running smoothly. If you notice any information that is out of date or needs correcting, fill out the comment form on the contact page.
So, what are we going to do here on the DPC Voices blog? If there’s a story you’d like to see on the blog, get in touch. Better yet, submit something to share. Posts don’t have to be long and you’ll get editorial help if you need it.
Here are some ideas of what we’re looking for:
- Tell us why you are a member of DPC and the aspects of church life you enjoy and want to encourage others to join in.
- A pitch for an upcoming DPC event. Why should we join you at it? What do you hope folks will get out of the experience?
- A report of a recent DPC or wider community event you enjoyed and what it meant to you.
- A reflection on an aspect of your faith journey. Where do you find meaning – in work or in play? How do you try to live out your faith in day to day life?
- A reflection on a current event or a social cause that has moved you to prayerful action.
- A book or a movie you saw at the Belcourt or a piece of art or a song or any other media that has inspired you and might inspire others. It doesn’t have to be explicitly Christian in intent – it just has to be meaning-filled to you on your faith journey.
So, you get the idea. Tell us what matters to you and aim to positively encourage others in our community. Be sure to include photos if you have them.
To end this post, I’m going to share a photo to set a good example. It is of our cat. Why? Because you’re not expecting a photo of a cat on a church blog.
His name is Copperfield. In the next post I will share what he has taught me theologically. Which is also not likely what you were expecting. But we have to start this journey somewhere.
Til the next post, have fun exploring the new site!
Peace be with you,
Cary Gibson (Artist-in-Residence, Elder, Editor of DPC Voices)
