Representatives from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) and its ecumenical partners were among thousands gathered to hear survivor testimonies, celebrate Indigenous culture and resilience and work towards reconciliation at the Truth and Reconciliation national event, March 27-30 in Edmonton, Alberta.
ELCIC National Bishop Susan C. Johnson presented an Expression of Reconciliation on behalf of the ELCIC at the gathering.
The ELCIC offered a copy of the 2011 ELCIC Resolution on Right Relationships with Indigenous Peoples and a clay pot as a symbol of, "all that we must give up for the sake of reconciliation."
