March 14, 2021 is PIE Day or National Affirming Day in the United Church of Canada!
It is a day (3.14 pi) to be Public, Intentional and Explicit of our inclusion of LGBTQ2SIA+ people. Our guest preacher will be the Rev. Greg Daly of Birchcliff Bluffs UC. (Daylight Savings Time begins, don’t be late).
We welcome on this P.I.E. Day, our guest minister, The Rev. Greg Daly. He brings his passion for justice to his call at Birchcliff Bluffs United Church in Scarborough. He is a graduate of Emmanuel College and was ordained in 2018. As a life-long learner, Greg is currently enrolled in the Master of Pastoral Studies program at Emmanuel College with a primary focus on pastoral counselling in health care settings. In support of that work, Greg has undertaken placements at Dorothy Ley Hospice in Etobicoke and St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. Greg has previously served as the lead minister at Palgrave United Church in Caledon.
Prior to entering ministry, Greg pursued a 20-year career in Urban and Regional Planning focusing on mediation, public policy in land use, and strategic planning; working for local, regional, and provincial governments and agencies in Ontario. Greg, finding his scriptural grounding in Micah 6:8, has engaged in social justice initiatives both within church structures and in the community, evidenced at present in his role on the Shining Waters Regional Council Equity Committee. Greg and his partner Joseph live in a housing cooperative in the St. Lawrence neighbourhood of downtown Toronto.
