Inspired by a view of the world which sees connection everywhere – Mitákuye Oyás’iŋ – we’ll spend 4 weeks exploring the depth and breadth of our relatedness. God’s call to his creatures has always been a call into relationship – with God’s self and all others. Hence, Richard Rohr would go so far as to call salvation “the readiness, the capacity, and the willingness to stay in relationship.”
This week we step into uncomfortable, but necessary, conversation, addressing the deep brokenness that has characterized the relationship between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples of this land. Truly, we are in need of reconciliation. Acknowledging both the truth of our shared history, and the broken ways of relating which still permeate our present, we then grapple with the crucial question: how can we learn to become good neighbours?
