In his new book, The Other Side of the River: From Church Pew to Sweat Lodge, author and retired United Church minister Alf Dumont generously shares his story of walking between the worlds of Indigenous and settler, Traditional Spirituality and Christianity. Dumont's stories challenge the church and all of Canada to re-examine their relationships and responsibilities with Indigenous peoples.

Through deeply personal experiences, humour, poetry, and insight, Dumont encourages all people “to sit down together again” and share in a new and good way. Available to buy now at!
