The Truth about the Shroud of TurinReForming Relationships at Redeemer
The Truth about the Shroud of Turin: Medieval Fake or Scientific Proof for God? Few Christians realize that the most convincing scientific proof for God is an image created on an ancient linen cloth called the Shroud of Turin. Labelled a fake at least three times during its amazing history, this cloth remains a puzzle to modern science, an affront to atheism, a religious relic to be revered, and the only physical evidence we have that Jesus rose from the dead.
Dr. Gary Chiang is a professor of biology at Redeemer University College and an adjunct Professor of Biology at McMaster University. An accomplished research scientist with over 30 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, he has also written extensively on faith and science to help alleviate the fear that science is anti-Christian.

ReForming Relationships at Redeemer
Join us for a day of ReForming Relationships
and exploring the themes of reconciliation and indigenous justice through worship, learning, art and sharing stories. Gather together to listen, learn and share as we explore these themes, heeding our Creator's call to live as people of reconciliation. Lori Ransom,
Senior Advisor on Church Relations at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, will give a keynote address on "Why Reconciliation Matters: The Church's Role". The day will include a panel discussion on land rights and land claims and afternoon worships on several topics related to indigenous justice and reconciliation. ReForming Relationships Art Tour
We will have an opportunity to view and interact with the "Kisemanito Pakitinasuwin - The Creator's Sacrifice" paintings which will be displayed in Redeemer's Art Gallery. This series of 17 paintings by Cree Artist Ovide Bighetty in the Woodlands style, depicts the familiar Easter story - the death and resurrection of Jesus - from an Aboriginal perspective. This display is part of the cross-country ReForming Relationships Art Tour. Inspired by the Creator's call to be people or reconciliation, this tour creates space for listening, learning, dialogue, and building relationships of reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous people in Canada.
