From our Facebook page this week:
"During the #SeasonOfCreation, we join together to rejoice in the good gift of creation and reflect on how we care for it. This season offers a precious opportunity to pause in the midst of our day-to-day lives and contemplate the fabric of life into which we are woven." ~ joint statement from ecumenical leaders
This is post #7 in our Tuesday series on pursuing right relations with Indigenous people by making a beginning to learn some of their history and experience.
In this #SeasonOfCreation today's link is a story by Vivian Seegers (the first indigenous woman to be ordained in the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster) where she writes about what it means to live in reciprocity with all creation and what happens when that relationship is violated in the AnglicanJournal to read the entire article. It is well worth the read. Here is the URL https://www.anglicanjournal.com/anglican-voices-living-as-ecological-refugees/ (I couldn't get the link to work, sorry!)
