Sermon with visuals: “Sacred Struggle: Reporting back from Standing Rock”

The following reflection was delivered on Sunday, November 6, 2016 at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Andover by the Rev. Lara Hoke. The title of the reflection is: “Sacred Struggle: Reporting Back from Standing Rock.” Rev. Hoke reports back from answering the “clergy call” to show solidarity and bear witness to what is happening at the heart of the Standing Rock Sioux struggle to protect their water — the effort to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. Here, the reflection audio is combined with the visuals used at the service on November 6.
