‘Reconciliation Service’ at Broadway Church focuses on Native Americans

Broadway Church holds Reconciliation Service for Native Americans, offering spiritual support and calls for equality.

A Reconciliation Service for Native Americans will be held at 10 a.m. Sunday at Broadway Church, 39th Terrace and Broadway, keyed to the 90th anniversary of granting Indians U.S. citizenship.

Such services there began about 15 years ago, one for African-Americans, one for women and one for LGBT people, recognizing that each group had not obtained equality in society. Over that period, progress has been made, so this year the spiritual focus will turn to blessing Native Americans.

A group from the church has worked in Eagle Butte, S.D., and has been moved by the plight of the Lakota people there, said the Rev. Marcia Fleischman, pastor.

A reception will be held in the Fleischman-Smith Fellowship Hall following the service.
