Placing Ourselves in Colonialism
4-part series from April 24 – September 25, 2023
A 4-session workshop for settlers and newcomers to explore our histories and stories, with some time in the middle for you to learn and share about your own family history too. Where do we connect with the forces of colonization? What are our responsibilities to the places where we have “settled” and the people whose lives that has impacted? Where does this lead us in our discipleship?
This series, which includes a panel discussion, a book study, and your own research (we’ll help!) and sharing, is inspired by the work of Elaine Enns and Ched Myers (authors of Healing Haunted Histories: A Settler Discipleship of Decolonization). It will also feature Chinook Winds Indigenous Minister Rev. Tony Snow, United Church of Canada Anti-Racism and Equity Lead Adele Halliday, and United Church of Canada Reconciliation and Indigenous Justice Animator Sara Stratton.
While there is one registration form for the the full series, you may choose to attend only some of the individual sessions.
