Vern Thiessen is one of Canada’s most produced playwrights. SHAKESPEARE'S WILL, APPLE, EINSTEIN'S GIFT, VIMY, and BIRD BRAIN all premiered in Edmonton and have gone on to hundreds of productions in Canada, the US, the UK, Europe, China, Australia and New Zealand.
He is the winner of the Dora, Sterling, and Carol Bolt awards for Outstanding New Play. He is also the recipient of the City of Edmonton Arts Achievement Award, the University of Alberta Alumni Award, and the Governor General’s Award for Drama, Canada’s highest honour for playwriting. He was recently nominated for a City of Edmonton Award for Outstanding Artistic Leadership. After seven years living and working in New York City, Vern returned to Edmonton in 2014 to become Artistic Director of Workshop West Playwrights' Theatre. He is married to best-selling novelist Susie Moloney.
The Breakfast is presented by the Robertson-Wesley Stewardship Committee at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at Robertson-Wesley United Church (10209-123 Street, Edmonton).
Vern will speak to the Stewardship theme this year “Knock, Knock…Believe, Seek, Open” and how what he believes in has opened doors for him in his life and in his career. Vern says that on his return to Edmonton and to Workshop West he asked himself, "How could the theatre better serve the citizens of this city?" An article in the April 2016 edition of Avenue Magazine talks about the YEG project where Vern commissioned eight local playwrights to "embed themselves in different parts of the city and search for their stories." Vern's ideas of seeing community and community building are also a part of our Stewardship theme.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in advance at Robertson-Wesley United Church. For more information call 780 482-1587.

Greetings to all members of Edmonton Presbytery
This Sunday, January 15th, at 10:30 am there will be a Covenanting at Chalmers Castle-Downs United for the Chalmers Castle-Downs conregation and Edmonton Presbytery to enter into and celebrate a covenanted relationship with Rev. Christian Kakez-A-Kapend.
I encourages as many presbytery members as possible to attend this service to bring a presence from their own congregaton as the covenanting service will be held at the same time as the ministers in the presbytery will be leading worship in their own congregations and unable to attend.
As Elders we need time to explore and honor our life experiences, training and skills. What wisdom, knowledge and guidance can we offer to the following generations? How can we share what we have learned or experienced? We are living a lot longer and how do we reach fulfillment as we age? If you are 55+, you are invited to look at your life’s harvest as you continue your journey. The program consists of two Tuesday mornings, January 17 and 24, 9:00 am to 11:30 am. Please register with Margaret Langston, 780-467-6656. Location: Sherwood Park United Church, 20 Fir St, Sherwood Park
