On Sat. Dec. 10 noon hour, at the corner of E. 1st & Commercial Drive, there will be a modest Advent Vigil for the Silenced. This has occurred, now, for some 20 years — also there will be a later Lent Vigil for the Silenced.

Advent marks the season we soon engage; for the “Silenced”, names and evokes those whose life conditions illustrate what it means to feel silenced or crushed or left out or shut down or unwelcome or estranged or pre-judged. Vigil means standing or sitting in shared silence while yet in public to bear a prophetic witness that aches for right-wising.

This season we will draw attention to theĀ  churches’ call, with other networks and city councils across the country, for a Guaranteed Livable Income (GLI). Long advocated by the United Church of Canada.
