In today’s Canada, settler Christians must enter into a process of decolonization, one that will rattle settler ancestry and religious identity as privileges and narratives of superiority are necessarily unpacked. It is a process that is neither dispassionate nor disembodied – we must decolonize our hearts to recover our humanity.
We will be viewing another one of the Epiphany Explorations presentations Wednesday May 25 at 10 am. This is a repeat of an earlier showing which was very popular. We will be showing Decolonizing the Heart by Jennifer Henry. Jennifer is Executive Director of KAIROS, a coalition of 11 Canada Church groups striving for social justice and human rights. She has worked for KAIROS for twenty years including manager for Dignity and Rights. She serves on the Primate’s Commission on Discovery, Reconciliation and Justice. Jennifer is originally from Manitoba where she was influenced by the Mennonite tradition of living out faith and the Catholic idea of working in solidarity with others, and the strong commitment to the social Gospel.
We will provide time for a short discussion after the video presentation.
