Decolonization is a key theme in socio-cultural discourse and a foundation for Truth and Reconciliation work, anti-racism and eco-spirituality. As a congregation of The United Church of Canada, which has often reflected “the Christ of Culture”, this work is faith in action. Beginning on Sunday, February 4, and continuing through Lent 2018, Bathurst will have a book study and series of services exploring how decolonization is a key to justice making. The saying “justice is indivisible” and “if one suffers, all suffer” are truisms, but a postcolonial analysis offers a lens through which to understand the interconnectedness of oppression in different contexts and a tool for de-constructing relationships where the abuse and misuse of power obtain.
