First light of a new day

We are coming together to make decisions about our future.

East

Educate

A series of webinars will occur in late June and early July that will provide participants of the Spiritual Gathering, and others, the opportunity to engage in the frameworks developed by the National Indigenous Council. Watch for dates!

South

Reflect and discuss

Spiritual Gathering participants are asked to engage their communities of faith in the material contained in the workbook, and to bring their concerns and ideas to the Gathering.

West

Discern

Those at the Spiritual Gathering will build consensus on matters through discussion, in silence, in song, in ceremony, and in prayer. We can rely on our teachers and healers to guide us.

North

Decision-Making

We will make decisions and build consensus on matters that effect Indigenous peoples in The United Church of Canada.
