Description

The wilderness is a place to reflect. To discover who we are. To grapple with all that is wild and uncertain. To figure out what we stand for. Where God is revealed. With guests engaged in the work of standing up for Truth, join Rev. Bri-anne Swan as we explore what it means to answer God's call to seek justice and resist evil in this beautiful and aching world.

Wilderness Times and Resistance Church are digital ministries of Jubilee United Church, an Affirming (2SLGBTQIA positive) congregation within the United Church of Canada in Toronto.
