Once again this year, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, and National Bishop Susan Johnson of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, come together to offer a reflection on the Christmas season and greetings to all to all Canadian Anglicans and Lutherans.

In this year’s message, both church leaders reflect on Christmas in the context of recent trips to the Holy Land.

The two church leaders are in frequent communication with each other and strive to give life to the special relationship that has existed between Anglicans and Lutherans since the Waterloo  Declaration on full communion was signed in 2001.
