Make time to reflect, through prayer and prompts, on three action calls that respond to the harms caused by residential schools.
CRC Canadian Indigenous Ministry Committee
We’re a CRC committee that cares deeply about the relationships between Indigenous peoples and non-indigenous Canadians. You may have seen the art tour that we organized (reForming Relationships) or experienced the KAIROS Blanket Exercise, one of our favourite tools for reconciliation. We provide lay leadership to the CRC on Indigenous issues in Canada.
The Canadian Indigenous Ministry Committee has the specific role of educating and mobilizing CRC members and congregations to live in reconciled relationships as covenant (treaty) people before our Creator with focus on reconciling the relationship between Indigenous people and non-indigenous people in Canada.
We work to raise awareness of the shared history and of the present lived reality of Indigenous people in Canada. In doing so, relationships are built and justice is sought out by advocacy or raising more awareness.
Use this in your personal prayers and in your collective worship services to mourn this latest revelation and the impacts of colonization.

From Indigenous columnist Richard Silversmith. "As in the Jewish exile to Babylon, the Indigenous experience, ‘diaspora,’ carries a sense of betrayal, of broken treaties, loss of lands and culture."
