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? Join author and activist Steve Heinrichs, Mennonite Church Canada’s director of Indigenous-Settler Relations, for a courageous conversation as we contemplate the practice of Jubilee. Together, we’ll wrestle with these questions by centering the voices of the oppressed.
Weekend Retreat, February 11-13, 2022, from 7:00 pm Friday to 1:00 pm Sunday (MT)
