You are invited to a circle of support, grief, and sharing on Thursday September 15 from 6:30PM to approximately 8:00PM. The link information is below. Please share this invitation with your community of faith and with all who need it; people do not need to be United Church to attend. We only ask that you not post the Zoom information to social media or other public places; please share it by email only.

The extreme violence of Sunday September 4 in the James Smith Cree Nation and Weldon communities will be with us always. It rests with the memories of those lost, those injured, the trauma in the affected communities, and so many questions about causes, prevention, and different paths into a future with less violence.

While these questions don’t have answers or solutions, we know that sitting with trauma and distress, and supporting one another for the long term, are key to healing. Our faith also calls us into relationships of love and support, and living as though all are our family throughout the world. We have the promise that where we gather, Jesus the Healer is with us.

At this circle, we will share silence, prayer, and words with each other. No one will be obliged to speak- simply listening is welcome. And you will have space to speak if you wish.

Thank you in advance the people who will help us hold the space: Darrell Reine, Regional Council chair will host the circle; Rev Michele Rowe (trauma informed ministry); chaplain Rev Emily Carr; other chaplains and support people to be confirmed.
