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.
Facilitator: Steve Heinrichs
If Canada is a settler colonial society, how does that shape Christian understanding and vocation? If dispossession is the fundamental breach of the Indigenous-settler relationship, what biblical resources can address that? Could old memories spur significant reparative action? Together, we’ll wrestle with these questions by centring the voices of the oppressed.
