Native American Liturgical Celebration
Written and Compiled by: Kelly Sherman-Conroy (Oglala Sioux Tribe)
Indigenous melodies mix with Christian hymns led by Molly Raben and
Redeemer's choir, with Native American songs and prayers sung by Bob Klanderud. Worship is led by Pastor Joan Conroy (Oglala Lakota Sioux Tribe) and Pastor James Erlandson. Refreshments follow the worship experience. A free-will offering will be received for the American Indian/Alaska Native Lutheran Association's ministry work in indigenous communities.
This Native American Liturgical Celebration was created by Kelly Sherman-Conroy who is a member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe in Pine Ridge South Dakota. Kelly is a PhD in Theology student at Luther Seminary and is an active member of the American
Indian/Alaska Native Lutheran Association. This liturgy has been put together in a very meaningful way to integrate Native culture and spirituality and keep some
boundaries of the Lutheran Christian traditions. The result is a profound and deeply spiritual experience that has been created for all involved in not just the worship
practices but their relationship with God and the other.
Come Together Twin Cities
Sunday, November 24th, 2019
Redeemer will host this gathering of the Twin Cities community for prayer, reflection and song. These gatherings began in 2016 as a faithful response to community violence in Minneapolis and St. Paul, with healing conversation, transformation and hope. On this 30th anniversary of the Berlin Wall coming down in Germany, we pray for the walls on our southern border and the walls of division between us today to come down. With faith in God we can Break Down Those Walls of hate! Pastor Jim Erlandson, music director Molly Raben, and faith leaders from the Twin Cities will lead our worship and prayer. Come and join us!
