Parksville church live-streaming talks

Knox United Church is hosting live-streamed talks from an event in Toronto.

The Walrus Foundation and The United Church Observer are pleased to announce an upcoming event featuring seven of Canada’s leading thinkers discussing faith, cultures, community, and the role of spirituality in our secular society.

The event will take place on Monday, April 4 in Toronto, but Knox United Church (345 Pym St, Parksville) will have it live-streamed as Canadians across the country are being encouraged to watch it live.

The Walrus Talks format features 80 minutes of lively, thought-provoking ideas on topics related to a single theme.

The event will feature a unique line-up of spiritual, religious, community, and cultural thinkers; Nicole Brooks, creator, filmmaker, performer, playwright and teacher; Natalie Bull, Executive Director, National Trust for Canada; Lewis Cardinal, Cardinal Strategic Communications, specialist in Indigenous education; Timothy Caulfield, author specializing in ethical, legal, and health issues; Joan Garson, President, Holy Blossom Temple; Michael Ingham, retired Anglican bishop and theologian and Gretta Vosper, Minister, The United Church of Canada.

Admission to the local live-streaming event is free.

A potluck dinner for women only will follow the event.
