Acknowledging the Territory

We acknowledge that we live, work, worship on the traditional lands. of the Anishinaabe (the Ojibwe or Chippewa Nation), the Haudenosaunee (the Iroquois, and the Oneida Nation), the Lenape (the Delaware People), the Attawandaron (the Neutral Nation or Algonquin People) and the Wendat (Huron People), Guided by the wisdom of their traditions and their ancestors, they have been taught that the circle of life is embraced and embracing.

Let us carry on this wisdom.

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus once again, we remember everything this birth means for our whole world and all people: hope, peace, joy, and love. May we live our lives moving gently in creation, listening, learning, and striving to be people of reconciliation. Let us live into right relations with love and respect for all.
