KAIROS

By Jeremiah Smith

Over the past few weeks one of the issues during Question Period has been the Government’s cut in funding for KAIROS, a Canadian ecumenical aid organization.  KAIROS consists of 11 different denominations working together to advocate national and international justice issues.

“‘kairos’ signifies a moment of crisis or opportunity, and also a moment of transcendence – when we connect to God’s time as a transformative influence on our lives… As a global society, we are bound by the seeming inevitability of chronos – time passes, and our societies follow predictable patterns that see power, wealth and resources concentrated in the hands of a select few. KAIROS the organization chooses to challenge this model, searching for societal opportunities to open up our world to new possibilities.”
