Journal of North American Institute for Indigenous Theological Studies Vol 11 2013
Our colleague, Richard Twiss, during our NAIITS Board retreat in January 2013, anticipated the papers and panel presentations of the 10th annual NAIITS Symposium captured in the pages of this volume. His focus on new ways to encourage non-Indigenous people to understand the good news, and to communicate it as such to Indigenous people, created a hopeful expectation about the theme for the 2013 Symposium, "Shaping Faith: How Language Informs the Journey.".
Unfortunately Richard neither heard the presentations nor was he able to engage with their presenters since his passing to the other side of the journey took place before the symposium began. And so we dedicate this issue of the Journal to him, knowing that though he did not see they days of the symposium, many questions he had about the topic have been answered better for him than for us, since he now sees all things as if "face to face," while we still see "in a glass dimly."
