MISSION CAPSULES: Through Presbyterians Sharing ... we support Presbyterians working with KAIROS ... Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives. Presbyterians across Canada are involved in KAIROS campaigns, writing letters to the government and supporting Southern partners. On June 20th, 2011 the Moderator of the 137th General Assembly 2011, The Rev. Dr. Rick Horst, joined church leaders from other denominations and over 250 people in Ottawa to celebrate the Canadian Government's endorsement of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and to encourage the government to implement the Declaration. The 2011-2012 KAIROS campaign will explore ways to build bridges of understanding and respect with our indigenous sisters and brothers in Canada and around the world. Let us pray for Presbyterians involved in KAIROS as they contribute to the ecumenical life of the church.
