Here’s Week 6 of The Me and White Supremacy Virtual Pilgrimage.
The question for the Church to consider:
How does White Exceptionalism show up in the Church?
Many people have questions about Churches that participated in the Residential School System. The Presbyterian Church in Canada operated 11 schools and most certainly collaborated willingly with the Government of Canada in the creation and operation of these schools. This link from The Presbyterian Church in Canada provides some information about such things and the PCC’s commitment to transforming the words of our apology in 1994 into tangible action towards reconciliation and healing.
Here’s Week 4 of the Virtual Pilgrimage.

As we have mentioned over the last few weeks, I’m embarking on this Virtual Pilgrimage with the book, Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad. The pilgrimage begins the first week of May and will take us until the middle of December. Each week, I will post my short reflections on what I am learning and encountering as I commit to this pilgrimage. Glad to have you accompany me in this way and would be delighted to receive your feedback along the way. Feel free to reach out as you watch my reflections.
Here’s the first of two introductory videos as we prepare to begin our Pilgrimage:
