Opening Sermon

By Bishop Mark MacDonald, Anglican Church of Canada

22 June 2016

 

By Bishop Mark MacDonald, Anglican Church of Canada

Isaiah 6:1-4 & John 3:16-21

These passages are two of the most familiar passages in Scripture. That is part of the reason I chose them. But they also share another thing in common, in the Ojibwe language of Indigenous North America, they both make reference to "Aki" - "A", "K", "I" - a word that, translated literally means "the land."
