Spirit of Water

Join us on July 15 for a celebration with Mississippi River! Come gather to connect, learn, pray, engage, play, celebrate, and honor the spirit of water.

The event is designed to highlight the care and responsibility involved in protecting and sharing valuable water resources—like Mississippi River—that in today’s world are often hidden by infrastructure and institutions. We will focus of themes of gratitude, celebration, unity, coming together, the commonality of water as a presence in our life, reverence, respect, and honor for our water and all that is sacred.

MORNING SESSION | United Seminary, St. Paul

Come to United’s St. Paul Campus at 9:30 a.m. to start the day. After an opening ritual prayer, attendees will be able to attend workshops, participate in activities, and listen to talks about the importance of water, threats to water, and ways in which we can work to protect water. Refreshments will be available and lunch will be served at noon.
