Healing at the Wounding Place

Just relationships between the church and First Peoples

Healing at the Wounding Place exits in order to catalyze conversations in church communities about indigenous justice, healing and right relationship. It was born out of the concern raised by indigenous leaders about who would lead the ongoing process of healing and justice in churches after the closing of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in 2015. Grandview agreed to house this work as a one year project to see what the appetite was in evangelical churches especially Baptist churches across western Canada. At the end of that year it was determined that there was interest and need for this conversation to continue. Healing at the Wounding Place seeks to partner with indigenous leaders on the ground in specific locales to help churches understand the issues faced by those communities and to invite churches to partner in the ongoing work of healing and justice.
