Stewarding Sacred Seeds

Members of the EFC Indigenous-Settler Relations Working Group presented this paper at the 2020 symposium held by NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community. The paper looks back at the history of the EFC’s engagement in reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and seeks to identify barriers to meaningful and sustained evangelical engagement in reconciliation.
The paper recommends a number of actions to be taken by the EFC in pursuit of reconciliation and right relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. The EFC has received these recommendations and has committed to seven commitments as outlined in the paper.
