On Saturday, October 23 the bishop conferred upon thirty-three people the Order of the Diocese of British Columbia, in recognitition of their contributions to the common good. New members and officers include parishioners of our diocese and some outside of the church including leaders of other faith traditions. Dr. Bonnie Henry, who was made an honorary officer, gave closing remarks which mirrored those in Bishop Anna's sermon; both calling us to continue to work together for the good of all, abandoning notions of self-sufficiency and strenghthening our commitment to interdependence.
During these days of pandemic life, the service was as much a celebration of what we have come through together as the individuals who have helped get us through it.
