Reconciling Congregations. What does that mean?
It means that we have made a commitment to being in loving Christian ministry with all people without prejudice, to truly have “open hearts, open minds, and open doors,” to work toward the time when our congregation, our denomination, and our society live the all-inclusive love that our faith demands.
We acknowledge the unceded territories of theTseshaht and Hupacasath First Peoples.
What is this about the acknowledgment of territory?
The United Church practices territory acknowledgment at public speaking events, group gatherings, and worship services. As part of our decolonizing practices, we share with you why acknowledgment of unceded territory is important.
