Standing Rock: Prayer Service, Sun Dec 4

Rev. Karen Brammer, Standing Rock, part 4

Sun Dec 4, 10AM Central/11AM Eastern Oceti Sakowin Camp

If you cannot attend in person, attend wherever you are. Join in Prayer. If you are so inclined, let us know in advance that you plan to do this so that we hold you in our awareness around the central fire.

We have been invited to show up and Pray with Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Keeper of the White Buffalo calf Prayer Bundle.

If you are able and so inclined, send a prayer in writing. I will bring it in some way to the ceremony. If you want your denomination to be visible, let me know.

I just got off a call on which 500 people participated. Dec 4 Interfaith Prayer Service organizers Ronya Hoblit, Acting Director of the Native American Training Institute (NATI) and member of the UU Church and Rev. Karen Van Fossan, Minister at the UU Fellowship and Church of Bismarck-Mandan helped people understand what is going on at Standing Rock, and filled in some of the unknowns about the prayer service. We learned that over 30 communities of faith will be represented at this service, and veterans will be a strong, nonviolent, supportive and honored presence among us.
