In his homily at today’s Eucharist, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, said the process of self-determination was like the transfiguration.

Archbishop Hiltz said that over several decades, Indigenous Anglicans have gone from depression to dreams, from submission to self-determination.

He encouraged Sacred Circle members with Jesus’s words to the disciples: “Get up. Do not be afraid.”

Memory keepers were moved by this message.

“We’re on the mountain right now,” said one. “The transfiguration is going to be right in front of our eyes this week.”
