I live and write on Lingít Aaní, and gratefully acknowledge the past, present and future caretakers of this beautiful place, the Jilkaat Kwaan and Jilkoot Kwaan.

“Imagine you can disagree without someone being wrong.”

It’s the third Sunday in Advent, and in the bulletin in church today there were some suggestions for loving our neighbors (and everyone else) as well as we do  ourselves, that came from the Presiding Bishop. This tip is particularly useful for me on the Haines Borough Assembly, and no doubt will prove to be very helpful over the holidays (and everyday these days) for you, too.
