Workshop: Reconciliation and the church: Fostering healthy relationships with Indigenous youth

What does the word reconciliation mean in our Canadian church context? This session will explore the issue of how to better engage with our Indigenous neighbours, especially youth.  Dallas is an Indigenous man who hopes to invite others into a thoughtful dialogue on his own journey of reconciliation in a way that honours the complex history of the relationship between Indigenous people and the church.
