The Black Lives Matter protests of summer 2020 may have subsided, but God's call for us as Christians to seek justice and correct oppression remains unchanged. Many of us have begun a prayerful process of asking 'How can I change my world for the better?' and 'How can I change my heart for the better?'
As a church, we believe that all people are created in the image of God, but we acknowledge that in our broken world, not everyone is treated as such. Racism exists, but there is no place for this in God's Kingdom.
On this page, we have compiled some resources for those wanting to learn more.
We have arranged these resources predominantly by media type - for those who prefer to watch videos, for those who listen to podcasts, and for those who prefer to read. We have also created a page specifically responding to the ongoing discovery of unmarked graves at former residential school sites.
We would like to encourage you to continue to engage with these resources. We serve a God who calls us to the long walk and hard work of justice in our own country and our own hearts. This work is hard, and often uncomfortable, but it is worth it, to see the fruit of real and lasting change.
We will update this page on an ongoing basis.
