Warm Congratulations to Murray Pruden

Last week, the UCC General Secretary, Nora Saunders, and Cheryl Jourdain, Acting Executive Minister for Indigenous Ministries and Justice, announced (link here) that Murray Pruden has been chosen to serve as the Executive Minister for Indigenous Ministries and Justice Circle in The United Church of Canada.
