“Confronting Historic Injustice”
Led by Sarah Holst,
member of the CHUM Young Adult Network (CYAN).
Tuesday, August 25th Noon to 1pm at Peace Church
Using restorative justice practitioner and theologian Elaine Enns’s book “Ambassadors of Reconciliation: Volume II”, we will examine the stories and legacies of Lawrence Hart (a Cheyenne Peace Chief from Oklahoma) and Rev. Nelson Johnson (Co-founder of the Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation Commission) and their racial reparation work. We will discuss how their work to weave a more complete story of history applies to our own community and context. “One of the most demanding, yet transforming, tasks of restorative justice and peacemaking today is to revise and remember the past, uncovering a fuller, more inclusive truth, and listening to the voices of those left out.” – Elaine Enns
