Lent/Easter 2019 – Seeking Right Relations

Posted in Steinbach United

In the Christian tradition Lent is a time of reflection and lament, a time to seek reconciliation and the mending of relationships. This year, during the Lenten season at Steinbach United Church, we are invited to acknowledge the truth about the harm done to the First Peoples of this land by European immigration, Christian assumptions and actions and continuing stereo-types and racism, which has resulted in damage that affects us all.  We will have opportunities to learn, to lament and to seek healing as we work toward reconciliation and wholeness for all who live in this land.

This will not be an easy journey, but it is an important one that we have been called to by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) which issued “94 Calls to Action” in 2015.  Some of these calls were made specifically to the church.
