Truth, Reconciliation, and Salvation Luke 19:1-10
with Josh Liem
Last week, we heard about survival through the residential school system. Where do Christians begin to participate in the healing and reconciliation process? What about immigrants and refugees fleeing their own persecution, only to find themselves somehow complicit in the injustices committed against the Indigenous? This Sunday we explore the connections between Zacchaeus in Luke 19:1-10 and us today, especially in the call for truth and reconciliation.
