The writer, who was a delegate at the Joint Assembly, "was very disappointed to see an inukshuk as the focal point for both the opening and closing eucharist services during Joint Assembly in Ottawa. I frankly don't see what a non-life-giving, paganistic object had to do with Christianity or worshipping Jesus. Why was such an object chosen ? Why wasn't the cross used as the focal point instead ? Those blocks forming the inukshuk could easily have formed a tall cross and been the centre of attention. Furthermore, why wasn't there a cross of some sort on the altar throughout the week ?"
