Untangling the Knots

Join us for this service via an on-line Zoom Meeting

As we strive toward the Beloved Community, conflict is always part of the journey.  But does our approach to conflict reflect our highest values?  This Sunday, we’ll explore how we can transform our relationship to conflict and our community.

  • Giniw Collective is an indigenous women led frontline resistance to the construction of a re-routed Line 3 which will cross 800 wetlands, 200 waterways and 3 indigenous territories on it’s way from the Alberta tar sands to the port in Superior WI. Enbridge is bull-dozing the route in violation of an agreement to first complete a survey for indigrnous cultural sites along the route. Your donations will purchase food and supplies for these water protectors who are spending this winter camping on-site and attempting to block the destruction and construction.
