Learning the Language

Location: The Lingonberry

In supporting funding of the Meskwaki Language Project, our congregation along with the Decorah Friends will be helping to fund a reprint of their language primer. We know how important language is as it gives us the words to talk about how we view the world, and how we understand our place in it. What words, what language do we need to become familiar with as we talk about the important things we’ve been learning about our relationships with Black and Indigenous People of color? Come and learn, and then take part in a discussion about some terms you may be familiar with: white fragility, white saviorism, and others. Service leader: Sue Otte

All are welcome to join us at Sunday Fellowship either in-person (usually at the Lingonberry but the service description will note if it is elsewhere) or remotely via Zoom. We have transitioned back to an every-Sunday service.

LIVESTREAMED VIA ZOOM: See Zoom Details for Sunday Services
