August 2023 Vigil

We are an open, progressive, energetic and inclusive congregation with a historical emphasis on social justice. We acknowledge that Edina Community Lutheran Church is located on the traditional, ancestral and contemporary lands of the Dakhóta Oyáte*, the Dakota nation. Treaties developed through exploitation and violence were broken. Tribes were forced to exist on ever smaller amounts of land. Acknowledging this painful history, and recognizing the United States has not yet honored these treaties, we commit to being active advocates for justice for Native People and to truth telling that leads to healing. Join us in person or online as we stand up for immigrant families and neighbors.
