Honouring the Apology

At the 2016 annual meeting of Saskatchewan Conference, the court and visitors were invited to join the wider United Church in honouring the 30th anniversary of the church’s Apology to Aboriginal Peoples.  Using excellent resources written by Aboriginal Ministries, in particular Rev. Susan Beaver,  the meeting joined in an hour-long time of prayer, discussion, and remembering.  We were honoured to have members of the All Native Circle Conference and the Moderator join with Conference members to help us remember and recommit.   Below is the liturgy used at the annual meeting and a recognition of the speakers who participated.   You are encouraged to use this and any of the other resources found at http://www.united-church.ca/social-action/justice-initiatives/apologies
