Nichole Forbes has suggested many books, movies, and people with which we can educate ourselves as settlers in this country. There is much wisdom here and we are grateful for Nichole's work in putting this together for us.

While not exclusively, many of The Bridge Church live, work and play on Sema:th territory, part of the unceded lands of the Sto:lo Nation. We encourage you to find out where you live if you are not local to us here.
