Official Statement on Harm and Residential Schools



 

On #Orangeshirtday, as bearers of privilege with our ancestors of blood and faith, we as followers of Jesus in Servant Partners Canada humbly apologize to God and our Indigenous brothers and sisters for the actions of our churches and government in running the residential schools until 1996. We apologize for our complicity and apathy in current day structures that continue to work against the flourishing of Indigenous children in Canada. We ask for forgiveness from Creator, and commit to the activities of repentance; to learn from our Indigenous friends how to walk in a good way alongside the work of healing and justice. Amen.
