Land Acknowledgement and Diverse Welcome

At one of our Town Halls listening to diverse voices in the Lutheran Church, Vance Blackfox recommended that congregations include a land acknowledgement and diverse welcome at the beginning of their worship services. See the clip below:

The resources recommended by Vance are here:

1) 6 Steps to Writing and Sharing a Land Acknowledgement

2) History Through a Native Lens Timeline

3) Blanket Exercise Toolkit - Includes resources to help craft a land acknowledgement statement

4) Reconciling Works has a number of sample affirmation statements your congregation can use to announce a diverse welcome at the beginning of your services.
