We sat down with Chris deBoer, an elder from the Canadian Reformed Church (CanRef) of Carman East. He recently attended the CanRef General Synod as a delegate, so we thought it would be good to get a summary of the hot-button topics that were discussed. He also gives a bit of background on the workings of Synod and how it is made up. We know this might be more of 'niche' episode of but even if you’re not part of the CanRef church, it might be helpful to get an idea of the topics being discussed within the federation and see how it relates to your own. Let us know your thoughts!
