New Leaf Learning Centre Book Club

  • Event Information

    This February, join the New Leaf Network & friends in the online Learning Centre for conversations sparked out of the book Unsettling the Word: Biblical Experiments in Decolonization.

    In Unsettling the Word, over 60 Indigenous and Settler authors come together to wrestle with the Scriptures, re-reading and re-imagining the ancient text for the sake of reparative futures.

    Created by Mennonite Church Canada’s Indigenous-Settler Relations program, Unsettling the Word is intended to nurture courageous conversations with the Bible, our current settler colonial contexts, and the Church’s call to costly peacemaking.

    Over four Thursdays in February, the New Leaf Learning Centre is hosting conversations with contributors to Unsettling the Word. You are invited to join these conversations and hear about the work being done by our guest contributors as they address questions raised in the realms of justice, decolonization, and peacemaking. We’d encourage you to pick up the book today, but please join even if you aren’t able read the book ahead of time.

    February 4th – Steve Heinrichs
    February 11th – Cheryl Bear
    February 18th – Sylvia McAdam (Saysewahum)
    February 25th – Q&A with Steve Heinrichs
