The Eastern Synod’s Circle for Reconciliation and Justice has been working on a project to engage the entire Synod in awareness, action and a deepening understanding of the impact of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirit People (MMIWG2S+).
The Red Dress Journey is an interactive display that will be making its way around the Synod to as many congregations as possible where it is the hope that you will invite others to engage in meaningful ways with the art and red dress, worship resources and other suggestions and opportunities which will come to you in a resource binder.
We recognize that many people are in different places along the journey of reconciliation. The opportunities and resources which are carefully articulated in the accompanying resource binder are meant to give each congregation a meaningful way to engage, dialogue, think, pray and act around the ongoing tragedy of murdered and missing Indigenous Women and Girls and Two Spirit People which continues to plague this country.
It is our hope that congregations and individuals will listen, reflect and then act to be voices of advocacy and change. If you would like to see the contents of the resource binder to begin your own planning and preparation for hosting the Red Dress, please see the attachments below.
