TOPIC

Steve Heinrichs (Director, Indigenous-Settler Relations for Mennonite Church Canada) reminded us that one of the 94 calls to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) is for faith groups to support the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). Steve was challenged to find concrete ways to embody his conviction that reconciliation is critical for the church to fully recognize that God became poor in Jesus. With other church leaders, Steve discerned that he was called to accept the invitation from the Tsleil-Waututh to support the defense of their land and water against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. How much is reconciliation worth to us, and what are we doing about it? [KH]
