About The Event

The United Methodist Church and its Native American community are on a journey of reconciliation and healing. In a highly  publicized Act of Repentance at the 2012 General Conference, the church  acknowledged that some of its past actions have inflicted physical harm  and cultural violence on Native American populations.  In his opening remarks, Robert E. Hayes, Jr. Bishop of  the Oklahoma Conference and the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference,  called the Church to accountability and action.

“We are here to repent of the Methodist church’s role in cooperation  with and entering into those relationships with political forces that  resulted in the killing of men, women, and children…It is only when we  acknowledge our manifold sins and wickedness in sincerity and truth will  repentance find us. “

Rev. Dr. David Wilson is the Director of the Oklahoma Indian Missionary Conference.  He brings the study entitled,  Who is My Neighbor?:   A DVD will provide a historical  context for the “Act of Repentance toward Healing Relationships with  Indigenous People .
