Orange Shirt Day – helping the PMRC celebrate and learn

We are very excited to announce that The Pacific Mountain Regional Council’s BC Native Ministry, Indigenous Minister and communications team have created Orange Shirt Day videos to use in your United Church setting! We hope that you’ll find ways to use them to amplify Orange Shirt Day in your communities of faith and ministries.

The Videos!

Video 1: Orange Shirt Day 2020 Resource for non-Indigenous United Churches (19 minutes)

  • This resource video has title slides to introduce the three speakers, and wondering slides to engage more with the topic of Orange Shirt Day and what the speakers are sharing.
  • The video is suitable for people of all ages, and the wondering questions are framed for conversation across the generations.

Video 2 : Listening with Heart and Intention: Beverly Brown, for Orange Shirt Day (22 minutes)

Video 3: Listening with Heart and Intention: Ray Jones, for Orange Shirt Day (37 minutes)

  • These two videos offer more time for listening to the speakers

Ways to Use The Videos!

  • include the links in your next newsletter
  • add the Orange Shirt Day 2020 Resource for non-Indigenous United Churches video to the start of your life stream or pre-recorded Sunday worship, and invite your membership to ‘arrive’ to church early to watch (or at the end with a Zoom coffee time and discussion)
  • host a watch party, and pause the video to engage with the wondering reflection questions
  • post the videos to your church or ministry website

Celebrate Orange Shirt Day in Your Setting!

  • invite your members to wear an Orange Shirt
  • post pictures of yourselves wearing an Orange Shirt with the hashtags (so you can see everyone else who’s posting them too!) #pmrcRelations #everychildmatters #orangeshirtday 
  • share and use the videos above

Every Child Matters – Every Day

These videos and ideas are available to you now, for this week’s Orange Shirt Day action, and any time of year. Please read the invitational message from John Snow, Jr.. John is the regional council’s Indigenous Minister. Below John’s invitation is a PDF link to the title and wondering slides from the resource video. Clicking on the images will open the PDF file.
