A Mother's Perspective on Residential Schools

Here is my experience of first day of kindergarten with my son Antonio. We are very close to each other. I wondered how the first day of school would be for him and how I would be. Well, this is how it went. Antonio was excited and cooperative the very first day of school. I was cautiously optimistic. The second day of school however was a complete 180. He had some verbal protests in the morning as he was getting ready but I didn’t want to inflame it all by opposing him directly and escalating his protests.

Milestones along the Reconciliation Journey

Send us a picture that symbolizes your milestone, whether metaphorically (eg. a picture of broken glass that reminds you of a story that really broke your heart) or more literally (eg. a picture of yourself in a group that attended a TRC event that moved you along on the reconciliation journey).

Smiles and Tears at the Indigenous Family Centre

We knew the basics; we knew would be staying at the Indigenous Family Center (IFC) in the north end of Winnipeg, we knew we would be helping around the community, and we knew that we wanted to make a difference in the lives of those we served. What we certainly didn’t expect, was that they would also make a difference in our lives.

Repenting of a White Savior Complex

It’s a bit one-sided. They share their pain, and we listen (and hopefully are changed and respond). But are we willing to be vulnerable with them? Or with other marginalized people?

The Baby in the Barn and the Lamb who was Slain

At the tail end of this season of Advent people seem to have more emotional space for attention to both the brokenness of the world and the hope hidden in Christ.
