You may remember that last year in the summer deacons and CRC congregation members were invited to walk with our Indigenous brothers and sisters. That walk commemorated the 50th anniversary of the closing of the residential school located in St. Albert. That short walk was later followed up with an 18 KM walk, to be in step with the reconciliation action happening in our communities.
This summer, Walking for Common Ground is going to a whole next level and version 2019 is going to take walkers from Edmonton, all the way to Calgary! Organizers from the Mennonite, Anglican and Catholic churches, have planned a two week long trek through some of our CRC communities. Walks will be followed up with Treaty Talk presentations and sharing circles in the evenings. www.treatytalk.com/commongroundwalk
Participation is open to all and I am currently seeking more details to see if our deacons and churches can be more involved. Take a look at the poster, check your calendar and see if there is a day that you could participate on a stretch near you. Starts and stops are going to include Edmonton, Leduc, Ponoka, Lacombe, Red Deer and others. If you would like to be directly kept in the loop, please email me and I can send details your way when I get them. (email@example.com) For now, see and share the poster. I have attached it here as a pdf for you to download.
