Tears of lament

We lament that the tapestry of our land is still torn by injustice and racism toward Indigenous Peoples. In a country with great abundance, there exists within Indigenous communities a scarcity of clean drinking water, decent housing, quality health and family support services, and access to economic and educational opportunities.

We lament the slow progress of the journey toward right relations with the First Peoples of Canada. These may be hard things for many of us to name and acknowledge, and yet Indigenous Peoples—individuals, families, and communities—must still cry out for justice.
And we are all the poorer.

Let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. Amos 5:24

Karen Dale [in ministry with Beach United Church]
