Religious groups can help heal the City's racial divide

On , Rev Margaret Mullin said:

Religious groups can help heal the city's racial divide. Teaching and role modelling ‘kindness, respect, and tolerance of others’ will go a long way to opening honest and truthful conversations between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in this city. It will be a difficult conversation to have but in my experience something positive always happens within the tension of an honest conversation between people who have respect for each other. It is essential that the non-Aboriginal person or group enter into the conversation with a deep desire to listen first and learn. The story will be hard to hear and it needs to be heard, believed, and acknowledged without the non-Aboriginal person becoming defensive or offering any solutions. The solutions to healing the divide can only come out of a position of mutual trust and respect which will always take time to develop. Rev Dr. Margaret Mullin ED Winnipeg Inner City Missions
