The month of June is National Indigenous History month - an opportunity for us to learn about and honour the history, heritage and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people of Canada.
This Sunday, Pastor Vida has invited Carolyn Klaassen to be with us on the second Sunday after Pentecost and share some of her story and participate, together with me, in leading us in worship that day.
Carolyn is Ojibway and is a long-time member of Redeemer Lutheran Church. She recently completed her Certificate in Indigenous Studies at Vancouver School of Theology. Engaging her dual identity as an Indigenous Christian her passion is to bring greater awareness of the riches of Indigenous spirituality to the church.
