Its PowWow Time

There is, believe it or not, a Powwow of the American Indian Center in Chicago. It should be fun, as there are a lot of dances and crafts there. If anyone wants to go with me, I am probably going to buzz down there tomorrow around 9 to 10ish on the L, as I am sort of an adopted member of that organization. If you want to tag along, drop me a line. I am told the frybread is delicious...

In other Native American news, I have been corresponding with the rector of the cluster of churches I am going to be interning at this summer. They are on the Rosebud Sioux reservation in South Dakota. Apparently, one of the congregations does the entire BCP service in Lakota Sioux. I am really psyched about that, although it means I will have to pick up something-near-proficiency in another indigenous language. I ordered a primer and grammar tape today. I'm excited...it appears to be a beautiful language.

I realized today as reality set in that I will be going from a Reservation mutual ministry internship in the summer directly to Cambridge, UK. I can only imagine that by January I will return to Seabury doing 1662 King's English rain dances.

The Great Minnetonka be with you.
And with thy spirit.
Thanks be to Culture Shock...Alleluia

What a lovely picture... 1662 King's English rain dances.

You have to promise to stop keeping quiet about your many experiences when you return from these. (I suppose it might help that you blog now.)
