I was so encouraged to chat with delegates in person again at Classis in March. It was such a breath of fresh air again! And to my delight, my presentation (mentioned in the previous blog) went well and I got this feedback from a pastor below. I got his permission to share it...
This is my Bible table at church. Full Cree Bible, Gospels and Acts in contemporary Cree. Some Gospels of John in a couple of other languages. We don't have many Indigenous folks walk through our church, but these remind our congregation that our Indigenous neighbors are God's people too. It's a sermon to my congregation without a sermon. I have placed a Cree Bible and Beaver Gospel of Mark in several local churches around mine.

I also received an email from my son, who is in grade 5, and he had done some learning that he wanted to share with me. I got his permission too and have attached the powerpoint for you to see. I hope you will be as encouraged as I was, that the journey for justice starts at a young age and our children are learning more about our Indigenous brothers and sisters than I ever did at that age.
