Notes
"National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald and Melissa Green reported to members of the Council of General Synod (CoGS) at its Nov. 14 to 17 [2013] meetings in Mississauga, Ont., about their experiences at the 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches (WCC), which took place Oct. 30 to Nov. 8 [2013] in Busan, Korea". "MacDonald attended in three capacities: as part of the WCC group tasked with writing the Unity Statement at the end of every assembly; as a facilitator for a pre-assembly gathering on aboriginal issues; and as a 'consensus candidate' for president of the WCC's North American region, a position to which he was elected". "The WCC has a critical role to play defending the rights of indigenous peoples', [MacDonald] said. 'Indigenous people are going to face not only the dispossession of their land but questions of life itself'. The WCC is, and always has been, poised to help'. [Melissa] Green is from the Anglican Parishes of the Central Interior in B.C. Other Canadian Anglican voting delegates to the WCC were the Rev. Canon John Steele from the diocese of British Columbia and the Rev. Nicholas Pang from the diocese of Montreal".
