Sunday Forums 2023

9/17/2023  Building Community: Holding Each Other Sacredly.  How might telling each other our stories help us build what Lakota people call, “kiciuzapi” – a way of holding each other in sacred reverence? When we begin to know one another, we begin to create connections and bonds and strengthen our interest and ability to live in, grow, and build community. Join Gretchen Sage-Martinson and Nancy Agneberg as we launch our forum series for the year with story-telling and reconnecting in community.

9/24:  Mental Health and Recovery in the Faith Community:  September is Recovery Sunday. How does our community support and encourage families in their journeys of recovery?
