Prologue
Archbishop Peers greeted the members of the ACIP and the House of Bishops, following his welcome with a prayer. He reminded those present that the day was theirs, and that it was not meant to be a media event. He welcomed Bishop Charleston once again.
Bishop Charleston spoke about the purpose of the day. He said that in a cross cultural discussion it was important to have two things: 1) a sense of personal humility and 2) a good sense of humour.
Ms. Donna Bomberry, Indigenous Ministries Coordinator and staff to the ACIP introduced the (ACIP) panel members. The bishops and the members of the ACIP introduced each other by giving their name and diocese.
Ms. Bomberry gave a brief history of how the ACIP had come to the point of meeting with the bishops. She spoke about the first Indigenous gathering which was held in 1988 and then the second which was held in 1993. The third gathering was held in 1997 and the fourth is scheduled for August 2000. Ms. Bomberry read the Covenant and then gave the floor to the panel. The members of the ACIP panel then shared with the House of Bishops, their experiences as Anglicans as well as what the Covenant meant to them. The panel consisted of the Rev. Mervin Wolfleg, Diocese of Calgary; Ms. Vi Smith, Diocese of Caledonia; the Rev. Iola Metuq, Diocese of Arctic and Ms. Shirley Johnson, Diocese of Huron.
The joint session broke into discussion groups throughout the day. The session ended with a Communion service held as a circle in the meeting room.
The next day the Primate read a letter of thanks written by Mrs. Smith on behalf of the ACIP to the bishops for the day spent together.
