Sorrow for the Past; Hope for the Future
Sweet grass in Miners Marsh, Kentville, and
a tree in Clock Park, Wolfville,
in sorrowful memory
of all the First Nations children who died without honour
away from family in schools not their own …
and in hope that a path may be forged
to mutual respect, regard, reconciliation,
affirmation that we are all children
of one loving Creator/God.
SWEET GRASS PLANTING
People of Annapolis Valley First Nation and nearby communities gathered on July 8, 2021, at Miners Marsh in Kentville. Together we grieved the tragic deaths of Indigenous children in residential schools, and we planted healing sweet grass acknowledging that the Creator sees all peoples as one. Thanks go to Wolfville Baptist Church, the Town of Kentville, and Susan Lawrence of Baldwin Nurseries for her generous gift of sweet grass.
We offer special thanks to Carolyn Landry and her sister Neenie Melvin for their leadership in ceremony.
TREE PLANTING in MEMORY, in HONOUR, and in HOPE
A symbolic sugar maple tree was planted In the Clock Park in Wolfville on
July 13, 2021, by Wolfville Baptist Church and the Town of Wolfville. Led in ceremony by our Indigenous friends Carolyn Landry and her sister Neenie Melvin, we grieved the tragic deaths of Indigenous children in residential schools, and we expressed hope that, like the tree, we will grow in mutual understanding, respect, and affirmation as one people, children of the Creator.
Special thanks go to Susan Lawrence of Baldwin Nurseries who donated the tree with the words “because it means a lot to me”.
The first official record of a Baptist church in Canada was that of the Horton Baptist Church (now Wolfville), established on October 29, 1778. The church was established with the assistance of the New Light evangelist Henry Alline. The Baptist movement remained strong in the area. In 1838 Acadia University was founded as a Baptist college.
