"One-hundred-and-eighty native Canadian Anglicans gathered in Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan, last October , to share their dreams as native people and as members of the Anglican Church of Canada. .... John Bird, the editor of 'Anglican Magazine', provided exceptional coverage of this convocation. He so eloquently captured the spirit of the occasion. As I read 'Recovering the feather' in the December 1, 1988 issue of the magazine, I could sense the powerful spirituality of the people, feel their pain, and rejoice in their hope. There have been many requests for copies of the December issue of 'Anglican Magazine'. .... It is with joy that I commend the reprinting of this exemplary piece of journalism". -- Intro.
