With an invitation to upcoming events, we hear an update from Rev. Sophia Ducey to open our service. With the words of our guest speaker Josh Carrier-McKenna (Cree) in our minds from last week, in today's worship, we consider what might be unreasonable to expect - a reconciled relationship where there was never a positive and reciprocal relationship, to begin with. And yet we needn't lose hope. We can hope for new life where there has been hurt and decay. Cecelia Reekie's (Haisla) words guide us as we travel the rocky yet rewarding road towards right relationships with all people. We praise the creator with awe for the beautiful diversity of creation.
