Honouring the call of Indigenous peoples from around the world, Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission has specifically summoned, not only the State, but all churches to embrace the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. But what is the Declaration? And how might it gift and reorient Christian faith and practice? In Wrongs to Rights, over 40 Honouring the call of Indigenous peoples from around the world, Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission has specifically summoned, not only the State, but all churches to embrace the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. But what is the Declaration? And how might it gift and reorient Christian faith and practice? In Wrongs to Rights, over 40 authors from diverse backgrounds – Indigenous and Settler, Christian and Traditional – wrestle with the meaning of the Declaration for the Church. With a firm hold on past and present colonialism, the authors tackle key questions that the Declaration and the TRC’s call to “adopt and comply” raises: What are its potential implications? How does it connect to Scripture? Can it facilitate genuine decolonization, or is “rights talk” another form of imperialism? And what about real life relationships? Can the Declaration be lived out – collectively and personally – on the ground? Short articles combined with poetry and visual arts provide a rich, engaging and accessible resource for individual and group conversation in 164 pages. A study guide is included.

    The first of a 'trilogy' of special editions of Intotemak magazine from the Mennonite Church Canada, this book of articles, poetry, art, and prayer is a rich resource for action on decolonization. There are contributions by indigenous peoples and settlers, religious and secular. While folks who are not concerned with or connected to Christian churches may think it's not for you, you'd be wrong. There is powerful stuff for everyone to learn and share.

Additionally, settlers in Canada have to come to understand the legal and political implications of the Christian roots of our colony and empire. This book will start you on that path. Looking forward to reading the other two editions, 'Yours, Mine, Ours' and 'Quest for Respect'.
