New Moderator of the United Church is welcomed and installed

“We believe that Jordan is worthy! Glory be to God!”

Those words rang out loud and clear as the whole General Council joyously spoke with one voice in response to the question, “Dear friends in Christ, do you believe that Jordan, by God’s grace, is worthy to be installed as Moderator?”

The installation of the Rt. Rev. Jordan Cantwell as the 42nd Moderator of The United Church of Canada was a buoyant, joyous, and intercultural worship celebration that concluded the 42nd General Council meeting, and capped off what had been a long day of business.


“Manna teaches the principles of mutuality, justice, rest for people and the land, and trust—trust God with everything they’ve got, trust one another,” said Cantwell.
