The Morning After Blog
From our Minister, John: Welcome to the Morning After. Preaching is created and offered and it’s a little awkward because you 'bare your soul' and it’s like you stand there buck naked, share what’s important to you, people get to peek and then walk away! It’s hard because it feels 'one way'. That is, I speak, people listen, and then choose to walk away or wander back, often with little comment one way or the other.
So here is a chance for me and our guest speakers to clarify, and for you to comment and for all of us to learn together! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, questions, or wonderings. This is a free space to engage!
National Aboriginal Day gave us an opportunity to consider our dreams for reconciliation in our faith community and in all our circles. This year’s celebration was particularly significant as we take these first faithful steps together with Aboriginal communities following the end of the National Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
As we prepared for this service, many questions were on our hearts:
How do we keep the reconciliation conversation going?
How can we do a better job of listening?
Isn’t there a bigger picture here? What has this process taught us about right relations with everybody?
Let’s keep the conversation going. What does your dream of reconciliation look like?
