Breaking New Ground Together is an ongoing series of talks and retreats at the Star of the North on how Christians can work in union with Indigenous peoples to live out the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Many newcomer and settler Canadians strive to be in solidarity with Indigenous peoples in seeking truth, justice and reconciliation. For Christians who hold the Bible as the repository of
important meaning, it makes sense to ask: Does our biblical tradition contain anything that could animate solidarity with Indigenous peoples in our time? Bible in one hand and newspaper in another, we will wrestle with some possible texts and connect the insights to current opportunities and challenges in allyship with Indigenous peoples.
Facilitator: Jennifer Henry
Jennifer Henry has been executive director of KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives since 2012. A settler striving to be an ally with Indigenous peoples, she has worked for 27 years in national ecumenical social justice.
