“Doctrine of Discovery: Stolen lands, Strong Hearts” is a film about a devastating decision, made over 500 years ago, which continues to profoundly impact Indigenous and Settler people worldwide. Pope Alexander VI ruled that the lands being discovered by European explorers at the time was “empty” land and its millions of Indigenous inhabitants were “non-human”.
Many of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action refer to the Doctrine of Discovery and calling for its repudiation.
The purpose of this film is to respond to the calls to action by helping to provide education and insight into the racist foundations of many of our property and other laws still in existence to this day.
If you would like to watch this film with us in person at St.Paul’s at 7:30pm on June 21st, please register in advance for this event at the link below.

Would you like to worship with us IN PERSON this Sunday?
Following our COVID-19 Operational Plan, those who wish to attend worship in person are asked to register in advance, follow COVID-19 screening protocols, and all other relevant aspects of our parish COVID-19 Operational Plan.
Also note that we will be thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing our worship space between services.
Family Tables, which include colouring and activity sheets, as well as a few small toys for busy little hands, are available at each of our worship gatherings. Families can also request their very own Communion Kits which make it possible for them to share Communion together around their table as a family.

KINGDOM IMPACT MEMORY SYSTEM
learning to carry the kingdom of God wherever we go
The Kingdom Impact Memory System (KIMS) was developed by Michael Frost and Graham Joseph Hill to help people commit the words of Scripture to memory in a way that would challenge them to become more generous, hospitable, Sprit-led, Christ-like, and purposeful followers of Jesus.
Several of us have started to work our way through the KIMS, and you can too. We will post each week’s KIMS plan below. Just open it up and following along.
