Kairos Blanket Exercise
Sermon by Danielle Webber, Summer Minister.
For the past four years I have worked with Indigenous Leaders, and leaders among the Canadian Unitarian community to further and more deeply engage the history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada, the colonization of their people and appalling treatment that the Canadian Government have put Canada’s First Peoples through. This journey has been moving, formative and eye opening for me, and has been a significant part of the ministry that I have been called to do. So this Sunday I invite you to take a journey with me through this history.
I have invited Kairos Canada to come to First and lead us through their Blanket Exercise, an interactive learning experience that will cover 500 years of Canadian history from the perspective of Indigenous Peoples.
Our normal Sunday worship routine will be set aside for this morning, so that we can do justice by our indigenous siblings through this learning. Please join me this Sunday for a new experience, a deeper understanding, and a further step towards healing.
