The United Church of Canada, Saskatchewan Conference is an Affirming Ministry.  We work toward affirming the image of God with all people.  We live and work on the traditional territories of strong and diverse First nations and Metis peoples and communities.  We are all Treaty people.

Remit Implementation

The Boundaries Commission released its Final Report on the Regional Council Boundaries.  They are 16 regional councils to replace the Conferences and presbyteries.  The final report and maps are available here.


Reflection on the deaths of Colten Boushie and Tina Fontaine

(For other voices on the killing of Colten Boushie, please see the statement from the Office of the Treaty Commissioner, a statement from the Moderator of The United Church of Canada, and the pre-verdict statement of the All My Relations Network of SK Conference, among many others.)

Colten and Tina.  We will remember these names.  We will know where we were when we heard the verdicts in their cases.  We will know the sensation of disbelief, fear, and heartache at the results.  For our souls cry out at the pain and injustice known by their families.  Our hearts break with parents who will never hold their children again.  With young lives cut tragically short. With communities and families torn apart.

We lament relationships strained and broken, and fear and anger replacing hope and progress in far too many places.  And our hearts cry out for all the youth who hear and read such hate spewed at them, simply for being Indigenous.  We refuse to believe this is ok, this is normal, this is how things are.

So here, we mourn, our souls cry out, joined by the Holy Spirit with sighs too deep for words.  We grieve.  We say the names of Colten Boushie and Tina Fontaine.  And we hear the promise of our God.

Have you not known? Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
    the Creator of the ends of the earth.
God does not faint or grow weary;
    God’s understanding is unsearchable.
 God gives power to the faint,
    and strengthens the powerless…
the Lord shall renew their strength,
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
    they shall walk and not faint.

In our God we will find our strength.  To continue to walk the path of reconciliation.  To refuse to give up hope.  To dare to believe the world, our world, can be different.  As we move through the season of Lent, a time for deep inner reflection, a time for reflection on our world, a time for truth telling, we will not back away from the difficult conversations, but instead move into them.

We will look at race in this country, and how it is played out in the justice system.  We will no longer refuse to see racism.  We will listen to the voices of Indigenous people and hear their experiences.  We will confront white privilege in all its forms, in all its places.  We shall walk and not faint.

For this is the life of faith we are called into.  To build the world where all are valued.  In all our communities, large and small, let us stand united in love.  Let us continue to speak out against hate, to teach our children and youth the joy, love, and wonder found when we come together, and learn from one another. 

We will work until every Indigenous youth hears the message, and knows it to be true:
You are worthy, you are valued, you are credible,
you are cherished, you are beautiful, you are important,
you are loved.

In the face of fear, hate, and sorrow that cuts deep, let us raise our voices and hearts in love.  For our God calls us to do no less.  We have heard the ancient call, “love your neighbour as yourself.”  And may the strength, courage, and peace of our Creator, our God, Source of us all, be with you this day and forever more.
