Internal conflict arises over First United shelter

December 12th, 2011 · 18 Comments

For those who missed it in the paper, here in my late link to the story in last Friday’s paper, detailing concerns from the within the board of First United and the executive of the Vancouver-Burrard presbytery about the shelter at First United.

Rev. Ric Matthews did not return a couple of calls I made to him during the week for some reason, but he did call me the next day and issue this statement.

It’s not clear what the outcome of all of this is, except to say that the situation at First United is a reminder of how careful people need to be as they try to do good work.

If anyone has any more information to shed on this unfortunate situation, I’d be happy to hear it.
