Ask the Nominees

Each week leading up to GC43, we are asking the Moderator Nominees one question to help everyone get to know them.
Week 1: What scripture do you find yourself turning to again and again?
Week 2: Why is Mission & Service important to you?
Week 3: Do you prefer fiction or non-fiction reading? And what book have you read in the past year that you strongly recommend? (Take a look—a great summer reading list!)
Week 4: What talent or characteristic do you have that most people may not know about?
Week 5: What movie (or Netflix or TV series) are you most looking forward to watching, or have you enjoyed most recently, and why?
Week 6: A newcomer wants to know which one place in Canada they must visit. (Other than where you live), what do you recommend, and why?
