Members and friends of BLCTC (That includes Spirit Garage!) are invited together for a tour of sites that honor the layers of sacred stories and land of Indigenous people. As the topics are quite serious the tours are considered age appropriate for high-school age or older. Register Here! https://onrealm.org/BethlehemChurch/PublicRegistrations/Event?linkString=Yjk1OTNiZTgtYzIzNC00N2E3LWE2OTMtYWZkNzAxNzk3YTZm
There is a registration fee of $10 per person to offset the full cost of this tour and secure your place in the group. It can be made payable to BLCTC.
Learn more about the MN Council of Churches “Healing MN Stories” project:
We believe in the power of healing stories. Stories heal because they make invisible pain visible. The listener and storyteller are both healed by their acts. Churches and all faith communities can play a key role in promoting and experiencing healing by opening ourselves to our own history and listening to the stories of Native people. Through the sharing and retelling of old traumatic stories, we can create new positive ones. This effort began in 2012 and continues to bring together Native and non-Native people to share stories and increase awareness of the value of American Indian language, culture, and our shared history.
