Land Acknowledgment Book Club

In an effort to more deeply engage with the land on which we live and with our own faith, the St. Luke’s Land Acknowledgment committee invites you to join a book club on Kaitlin B. Curtice’s Native: Identity, Belonging, and Rediscovering God, a memoir of her never-ending journey to find her identity as both a citizen of the Potawtomi Nation and a Christian and her journey to find God.

We will meet for an hour on three Saturday evenings in April and May. Please fill out this sign-up form by Sunday, April 25th if you are interested in participating. In these three meetings, we will discuss the book in three parts: our first meeting will discuss “Part 1 Beginnings” and “Part 2 Searching for Meaning,” our second meeting will discuss “Part 3 The Struggle for Truth” and “Part 4 Working,” and our third meeting will discuss “Part 5 Bearing Fruit in a New World” and the book as a whole. 

St. Luke’s land acknowledgment stems from the work of the Antiracism Ministry. Through the land acknowledgment, we seek to honor the land on which we live and worship and we seek to better understand its history. We also acknowledge the past and present peoples of this land and the complexity of the role white supremacy has played in relationship with Indigenous peoples and this land. Through this book discussion, we hope to deepen that engagement and understanding as we move forward.  

You can purchase Native: Identity, Belonging, and Rediscovering God from Bookshop.org or from your favorite retailer. If you need assistance from St. Luke’s in accessing a copy, please indicate this on the sign-up form.
