Canada at a Crossroads online book study
Led by Steve Heinrichs (Mennonite Church Canada) Begins October 8
Steve writes: “The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has called all churches to learn a more accurate history of “Canada”, to understand Treaty relationships, and to grapple with the structural and interpersonal reasons for the fractured Indigenous-Settler relationship. Jeff Denis’ new book is an awesome resource to help Settlers do this work. For 8 weeks, we’ll read through the text, share our learnings and questions, and explore next steps on the journey of decolonization. If you’re interested, we start up on October 8, and you can register here— https://www.mennonitechurch.ca/crossroads-bookclub.”
The book may be ordered through McNally Robinson or Common Word Bookstore in Winnipeg or check with your local bookstore.
