St. Luke’s Interfaith Conversations began in March 2017. Interfaith conversations provide a safe space to listen to and learn from leaders and people of other spiritual/faith traditions. These evenings foster conversation, celebrate our differences, and develop tools to strengthen the whole.
On June 7 and 14, St. Luke’s will host two Interfaith Conversations that will focus on Native American spirituality. A light supper will be provided at 6:30 p.m. downstairs in the main church, followed the conversation at 7:15 p.m. upstairs.
Ray Kingfisher will share the Message of the Water Protectors, as well as Native Culture and Way of Life.
Ray is an American Indian community activist from the Northern Cheyenne tribe of Montana. He was first exposed to civil disobedience at the age of 15, during the Bureau of Indian Affairs Takeover. The former owner of the American Indian Entertainment & Dance Co, Ray is an active participant in Native song, dance, and lifestyle. He also served as a supply runner and occupant at Oceti Sakowin Resistance Camp at Standing Rock, North Dakota from September 2016 to February 2017.
The Traveling Day Society will provide an evening of Native music, chant, and storytelling.
The Traveling Day Society is dedicated to supporting those at the crossing point in their Spirit Journey from the physical world to the Spirit World. We are an inter-tribal and multi-cultural blend of musicians using the voices of the Drum, the Native American Flute, and other traditional instruments to create a prayerful and respectful environment to help enhance a peaceful “crossing.” The Traveling Day Society works closely with hospital Spiritual Care professionals as well as the Hospice Community to provide our services when requested.
