Beloved Amazonia

An online book club with Indigenous-Settler Relations exploring the Church’s relationship to Indigenous peoples, spiritualities, and land

Beloved Amazonia: an online bookclub

I dream of a Church that

allies with the poor,

defends Mother Earth,

and in so doing,

is transformed.

Beloved Amazonia is a remarkable text that shares the work of the Pan-Amazon Synod. It is a text that, if made flesh in Canada, could revolutionize the Church’s relationship to Indigenous peoples, Indigenous spiritualities, and Indigenous lands.

Mennonite Church Canada invites you to join Steve Heinrichs (director of Indigenous-Settler Relations) for an online book club this April as we explore Beloved Amazonia. Beginning April 8, we’ll gather by Zoom each Thursday at 1:30 p.m. (CDT) for five weeks of circle conversation, sharing with each other our hearts and hopes, our questions and learnings. Together, we will dream new paths for the Church in these lands now called Canada. Together, we will consider what roles we can play to help make this gospel dream a reality.
