As we reflect on the ’94 Calls to Action,’ we want you to know that there are opportunities to continue this important learning journey.

Canada has federally declared September 30 as Truth and Reconciliation Day, acknowledging our Indigenous peoples. In recognition of this day we are bringing in an Indigenous Christian leader, Andrew Thunder, to lead us in corporate worship and direct our staff in a workshop the following day. As a Christian organization this is an important part of our own professional development and, in the language of our competencies, our contextual awareness. It is also a constructive, concrete way we can participate in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s recommended actions.

We plan to make a video available online for you to share in this learning experience. More information coming soon! 

Indigenous Reconciliation keep learning

As well, we’d like to highlight our Indigenous Ministry course, instructed by Jimmy Thunder here at Horizon. This course prepares students for success in ministry with Indigenous Peoples by contrasting recent and historical failed mission attempts with efforts that produced positive outcomes. Students examine various Indigenous ways of contextualizing the core tenets of Christian faith as well as the history leading up to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action. Students also explore ways to act on these calls within the context of ministry.
