On Sunday evening, Oct. 2nd, at 6:30pm we will be hosting a Blanket Exercise here at Willoughby Church in light of the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation on Sept. 30th and in connection with our special offering this month, which is for Indigenous Ministry CRC.

The Blanket Exercise, developed by KAIROS, is an excellent tool that literally walks participants through the history of relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.  Much of the content is written by Indigenous people, and it helps participants understand why reconciliation is needed and how to take steps toward reconciliation and new relationships.   

The exercise will be facilitated by Rachel Vroege and Patti Victor, whose bios you can read here on the website.  The activity is open to everyone 11+ (Grade 5) and is free of charge.  We simply ask that you please register by clicking the link below because space might be limited. 

Please also remember to bring your own blanket for this exercise.
