Pastoral Letter for Ash Wednesday 2018

Dear Sisters & Brothers in Christ,

As we enter into the season of Lent, traditionally a season of introspection and penitence, we are aware of the attention of our nation on the acquittal of Gerald Stanley in the shooting death of Colton Boushie.

We would like to invite the United Church in BC, its members and its congregations, to be prayerful during this season about the ways in which racism is internalized in us, and in our institutions (including the church) in Canada. We repent of misuse of power. We repent of the outflow of colonialism and the harm it has done to our relationships. The journey of reconciliation takes more than just a few years, and it certainly takes more than words… though words do have power to heal or hurt.

Motions Sent to the Boundaries Commission

As promised, here is the beginning of a collection of motions that have been sent from church courts in BC to the Boundaries Commission’s request for change email address. We will keep adding to it as we receive more submissions.
