Presenter: Susan Layng
Worship Associate: Penelope Hagan.
Susan Layng – Our First Principle affirms that we believe in the worth and dignity of every human being. Can this include convicted felons? Susan will take us on an exploration of what it was like to work with federal penitentiary inmates, our parole system and with life after prison. This end-of-year message encourages us to open ourselves to the possibility of Healing and Hope in an otherwise lost and forgotten segment of our society. Susan Layng has been a member of First Unitarian since 2010 and a friend since 2003. She was a Service Leader prior to becoming part of the Worship Associates team. Susan was employed with Correctional Service of Canada for more than 14 years and currently sits on the board of Bill Mudge Correctional Residential Facility, a halfway house in Victoria. She and her husband Peter have been together 23 years. Susan has three adult children living in B.C. and Alberta.
