Fiona Brownlee has spent most of her life in rural Canada, is deeply connected to the life of the church, and has seen first hand the struggle that rural churches have to connect with their neighbouring indigenous communities. During her years working for the Council of the North in northwestern Ontario, she learned much from the indigenous leadership of those dioceses and from her indigenous friends, who shared many hard and true stories about life as an indigenous person in this country. Her hope and dream is that we can explore together what neighbourly reconciliation might look like in rural communities, remembering that Jesus calls us to love our neighbours as ourselves.
