Healing Haunted Histories study group, led by co-author Elaine Enns, starts October 16, 2021. Elaine will lead a virtual eight-session intensive study of her book co-authored by Ched Myers. We will do intense personal work around decolonizing discipleship, exploring our landlines, bloodlines and songlines. Participants will work independently, then gather biweekly to share:
– learnings about inherited trauma and privilege;
– denial and moves to innocence;
– moral injury and assimilation into whiteness.
> What are the stories of violence and conscience on the land where we now live, and convictional traditions of faith that animate practices of restorative justice and healing (including reparations and repatriation)?
> How does the legacy of Settler colonialism generate “unclean spirits” that both occupy our places and possess our communities?
We’ll think together about how to become more reliable allies in relationships with our indigenous neighbors.
