June 21 was National Indigenous Peoples Day. Canadian Vineyard churches were challenged to focus on this by having “A Sunday for Speaking Truth.” Our whole service was dedicated to Indigenous concerns and issues and the teaching was given by Kanatiio, Negotiations Coordinator with the Peskotomuhkati Skutik. Chief Hugh Akagi also shared some thoughts and he noted that the problem with having a day set aside for speaking the truth is the fact that there are 364 other days in the year. We recorded this entire service, including the music and prayers. You can listen to the first part of the service
