Fifth Book Bonanza –Sunday
Books are available on tables in the Narthex before and after the service today. Anyone can help themselves to the books on the table, whether they have brought in books to share or not. Any books that have not found a new home will be delivered to the Fire Hall to be donated to the Children’s Hospital Book drive.
Circles for Reconciliation
As a consequence of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Dr. Raymond Currie, a former professor of Sociology at the University of Manitoba, in partnership with Indigenous community members is organizing Circles for Reconciliation to further dialog and understanding between indigenous and non-indigenous people. These Circles are to have 10 members each, half of them indigenous and half non-indigenous. They will meet for 10 sessions to discuss a variety of pre-determined subjects such as Reconciliation, Public Opinion, Meaning of Land for Indigenous People, the Pass system, etc. Each session will last for 75 minutes and will include indigenous customs and cultural formats.
Faith Lutheran has been invited (with the approval of Council and the endorsement of the ELCIC) to organize and host a Circle for Reconciliation and we are inviting people to let us know of their interest in participating in such a Circle. We are particularly inviting people of indigenous background (aboriginal, Metis, Inuit or other First Nations) to join this group. If you are or know of anyone who might be interested, please ask them to
contact Orly Friesen firstname.lastname@example.org or Pastor Chris email@example.com for further information.
