Turtle Island

Our gifts for Mission & Service Support ecumenical partners like KAIROS, which seeks justice and offers ways for faith groups to live out the 94 Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

In March 2017, 45 people from many different backgrounds – Indigenous and settler, young and old, teachers and counselors, medical staff and faith leaders – gathered with one common goal, to learn how to facilitate the KAIROS Blanket Exercise at the Saskatoon Friendship Centre, Treaty 6 territory.

Those gathered were committed to living out the Calls to Action, especially as they pertain to education around the impacts of colonization. The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is a rich, complex and emotional experience of sharing the history of colonization.  It tells the story that we are not fully taught in school.  The new facilitators committed themselves to carrying the experience into their communities.

The Blanket Exercise can be very powerful for participants. Together, the group learned ways to navigate the anger, tears, and painful revelations that can be brought to light by the experience. The 45 new facilitators listened to the words of the Elders, laughed, and shared together, promising to support one another. The group left with open hearts and open ears, ready to share the good news of truth telling and reconciliation.

If Mission & Service giving is already a regular part of your life, thank you so much! If you have not given, please join me in making Mission & Service giving a regular part of your life of faith.  Loving our neighbor is at the heart of our Mission & Service.
