From the Conference where the sun first rises
to the Conference of northern lights
to the Conference where the sun last sets,
from sea to sea to sea
we have gathered here.
Speaking French and Oji-Cree,
Japanese and Lingala,
Salish and English,
and more.
We gather here,
to listen deeply.
To speak our truth,
confident:
We are not alone.

—A prayer by barb janes, GC43 Worship Team
