Small Group Study

Walk With Us

There is an intersection between the crises of commercial sexual exploitation and missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and 2-spirit people in Canada. As we work to address one crisis we will also address the other, so tight is the connection. As settler people in Canada and particularly as the church we need to first learn all we can and then humbly work towards reconciliation through relationship.

"Walk With Us" is a 3-part video series designed for small group study and discussion. This short, inspiring round-table conversation explores some of what's behind the MMIWG2S crisis, what families experience when searching for a missing loved one, and why churches need to engage with this issue. There is a discussion guide you can download, too! Click the orange button below for more information.
