Reconcile. Everyday Conversations

  • Publisher: Mennonite Central Committee Saskatchewan
  • Total Episodes: 18

Since the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) work across Canada and the TRC Calls to Action, all Canadians have been challenged to join the journey of reconciliation. Due to this call we have seen the term reconciliation become increasingly popular in our news cycle, organizational mandates, and within our churches.

But how are people interpreting and working towards reconciliation?

Senator Murray Sinclair stated, “If you thought the truth was hard, reconciliation will be harder.” This podcast is a forum to face the difficult, complicated, and messy nature of reconciliation. We have heard Indigenous leaders call settler people to step into this reconciliation journey.

Within this podcast we intend to deliberately place ourselves, those who come from a predominately settler background, in this space and identify where we can be challenged and encouraged to keep moving towards reconciliation.

Reconcile: Everyday Conversations is a project of Mennonite Central Committee Saskatchewan.
