“Every Footfall is a Prayer”
with The Reverend Meg Whitaker-Greene
The Reverend Meg Whitaker-Greene will reflect on her trips in November and December to Oceti Sakawin where the “Black Snake” has been (now, under Trump, it appears only temporarily) stopped. The Bismarck Mandan Unitarian Universalist Church and Fellowship plays an essential part in supporting this movement led by First Persons of the North American Continent to save our water and earth.
The Rev. Meg Whitaker-Greene, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, is a graduate of Starr King School for the Ministry where she formerly served as Adjunct Faculty. She has served as Minister to four UU Congregations. Her psychotherapy experience includes successful facilitation to heal post-traumatic stress, historic trauma, and issues being experienced by couples, families, and individuals. She has been Clinical Supervisor of the Native American Counseling Center in San Francisco. She is a graduate of The Reverend Dr. Jeremy Taylor’s Dreamworker Institute. She presently leads Dream Groups and does short term counseling in her private practice.
Support Standing Rock!
As the banner at the entrance of our collective home proclaims, the Bismarck-Mandan Unitarian Universalist congregation is “Standing with Standing Rock.” As a Lakota nation, Standing Rock peacefully and prayerfully proclaims that water is life and, since September 30, 2014, has asserted that the Dakota Access Pipeline would threaten Lakota ways of life – past, present, and future. We respect these declarations by Standing Rock, as well as Standing Rock’s sovereignty in making them. It is our honor to stand with Standing Rock, our neighbor and our friend.
Are you wondering how you can support the Water Protectors at Standing Rock? There are some great ways you can help!
Oceti Sakowin is the “big camp” at Standing Rock. The easiest and most direct way to support the camp is to donate at http://www.ocetisakowincamp.org. The Medic and Healer Council is busy keeping folks at camp safe & healthy this winter. You can donate to them at https://psmag.com/inside-the-battle-over-the-dakota-access-pipeline-2509fa77f23e#.88r2314pphttps://medichealercouncil.com/
Time will be allotted for announcements.
Donations to Occupy Forum to cover costs are encouraged; no one turned away!
