Anyone looking to explore the Mennonite Church Canada publication Unsettling the Word: Biblical Experiments in Decolonization in a group setting has an opportunity to do so in the coming month. New Leaf Network, an organization that provides support to church workers nationwide, is hosting a virtual book club during which participants will read through the book. Meetings take place at 1:30 p.m. EST every Thursday in February.
In 1990, as the 500th anniversary of Columbus’s arrival on this side of the Atlantic loomed, Mennonites felt compelled to do something tangible.
While volunteering with Christian Peacemaker Teams, Steve Heinrichs documented the presence of the RCMP and Coastal GasLinks in Wet’suwet’en territory in British Columbia.
While people across Canada and around the world self-isolate from COVID-19, work continues on the Coastal GasLink (CGL) pipeline in northern British Columbia, without the full consent of the Wet’suwet’en people. The 670-kilometre long pipeline plans to snake through Wet’suwet’en territory and export liquefied natural gas around the world.
