MISSION CAPSULE: Presbyterians Sharing … helps congregations and individuals walk alongside Indigenous people on a journey toward reconciliation. In June, 33 Presbyterians from across Canada visited three of the PCC’s seven indigenous ministries, worshipped at Mistawasis church and listened to stories of anger and pain and offered apologies. They also witnessed some of the ways in which PCC ministries are transforming lives. At Birdtail Sioux First Nation, site of the Birtle residential school, Doug Hanska thanked the visitors with an honour song. He explains, “The stop they did in Birdtail, I know it many not mean much to a lot of people, but to some of us it means a lot.” He said. “We can forgive and move on, like our teachings tell us.”
