"Instead of featuring photos of Anglican churches from across the country, next year's calendar  will show Canadian Anglicans and Lutherans engaged in mission work, the national office announced earlier this year". "'There are some beautiful church buildings, there's no doubt about that', he said. 'But the loveliest thing about the church is God's people engaged in the transforming mission of God; feeding the hungry and looking after .. the poor, sheltering AA groups, welcoming refugees'. Production of the calendar, formerly handled by the 'Anglican Journal', will now be overseen by Trina Gallop Blank, director of communications and stewardship of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) and Meghan Kilty, director of communication and information resources for the Anglican Church of Canada. The new concept for the calendar stems from a meeting between the Anglican and Lutheran staff in 2014. The ELCIC had been expressing interest in a jointly produced calendar for several years already".
