JOIN NORTH AMERICAN INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DISCIPLES!
Within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) denomination there now exists an "Affinity Group" entitled North American Indigenous Peoples Disciples (NAIPD). This is a supportive community developed following the General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Columbus, OH during July 2015. Membership is open to all Disciples (Native and Non-native) who support Disciples seeking an end to Disciples Institutional Racism Towards Indigenous Peoples throughout North America. We also call for Disciples involvement in developing and supporting on-going culturally competent missional ministry to indigenous peoples, living in urban communities or on reservations, throughout Canada and the United States. Interested? Join us on Facebook and/or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are grateful for your conviction in spirit.
SACRED HOOP NATIVE AMERICAN MINISTRY
ENTERS FOURTH YEAR
Our year began with expansion of our Wellbriety treatment program development. Pastor Bill Running Wolf is currently expanding his chaplain training to include substance abuse spiritual intervention and Pastor Linda Two Hawk Feathers is working with Disciples Home Missions to help build the program.
Through the use of such tools such as the book "The Sacred Tree"and Native American Christian Prayer Circle Ceremonies, along with other Native American Christian culturally based activities and teachings, Sacred Hoop has continued to provide good service to the people. A significant part of this has been through meeting people where they are at and instilling a sense of hope. Online film posting with teachings are on this website and Facebook.
As with all organizations, Sacred Hoop has had it's ups and downs. In the year to come we look forward to continuing our service work, continuing to support the development of other Sacred Hoop communities, and to provide continuing movement towards overcoming Disciples marginalization of Native Americans and all Indigenous Peoples.
WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT IN THESE EFFORTS!
All are welcome at the table of our community, where we provide Native American Christian based prayer circle, teaching and worship. Through this we are nurtured and transformed to live and bring the heart of God to others in the world. Join us in promoting living in harmony among all peoples through the uses of traditional spiritual and cultural ways of North American Indigenous Peoples in conjunction with the living teachings of Christ. Walk in Beauty.
