Jodi Spargur, a graduate of Regent College and a founding pastor of a church made up of many indigenous people (God’s House of Many Faces), spoke about reconciliation and what it means to play the part of the accused instead of the hero. Jodi describes herself as “a settler of Nordic/German heritage living and working on the unceded territory of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh Peoples.” As such, even though she never perpetrated against the indigenous people, the role she needs to play if she wants to truly bring reconciliation is that of a perpetrator asking for forgiveness. Jodi is currently leading the work of Healing at the Wounding Place, based out of Grandview Calvary Baptist Church, looking to engage people of faith and indigenous communities in walking into whole, healing and just relationships.
