A 'Full-Communion' Christmas Greeting

Once again this year, National Bishop Susan C. Johnson of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada and Archbishop Fred Hiltz, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, come together to offer a reflection on the Christmas season and greetings to all Canadian Lutherans and Anglicans.

In this year’s message, both church leaders reflect on Christmas in the context of recent trips to the Holy Land.

The two church leaders are in frequent communication with each other and strive to give life to the special relationship that has existed between Anglicans and Lutherans since the Waterloo Declaration on full communion was signed in 2001.
