We offer a variety of programs for adults, and are always looking for great new ideas!

This fall SFUC will be offering the Truth, Healing & Reconciliation Program.

 

Dates: October 12, 19, 26; November 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30

Time: 7pm-9pm
Location: Crescent United

The Guide is one of the CUC’s commitments to the Truth and Reconciliation process in Canada. The CUC’s THRRG Task Force consulted with Indigenous elders and educators to develop guides for lower elementary, upper elementary, youth, young adult, and adults.

The purpose of the THR Reflection Guide is to begin discussion in the following areas:

  1. Engagement: What social identities do each of us have, and what culture(s) do we come from? How do we relate inter-culturally? How do we relate to the land we call home? Use individual storytelling for engagement.
  2. Understanding: Learn about the process of colonization, in particular the Indian Residential School System and its impacts on our history and present day life. Share our responses (thoughts and feelings).
  3. Connection: Update our understanding of Aboriginal societies, and learn about current issues. Making connections with local Aboriginal leaders. Share our responses (thoughts and feelings).
  4. Healing and Reconciliation: What does healing and reconciliation mean to you, to the group? What are the next steps for building connections and making commitments?
