Race, Religion & Relationships Gathering

Join us for the 3rd Race, Religion & Relationships Gathering at Camp Minne-Wa-Kan in Cass Lake September 22-23, 2017.

As Jesus’ followers, we too are called to cross the barriers of race and religion, together. This event is supported by the Northeast and Northwest Minnesota Synods of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, engaging key leaders from our Ojibwe communities of faith.

Our time together will follow basic principles of reflection, discussion, and forming a plan of action. Talking Circles will be used to offer all participants an opportunity to critically reflect on Biblical themes and examine how we can learn, live, and grow into a reflection of God’s will for us.

Turtle Island Ensemble will lead worship and special music throughout the conference.
